Driver Leasing Benefits with Transportation Staffing

Driver Leasing Company discussion on Benefits from 3PL companies

  1. Cash Flow Control – Workers compensation is not paid up front. It is built into the rate so you pay-as-you-go.
  2. Budget Control – Your labor costs are set and will stay constant. Knowing your actual labor cost is essential to a transportation budget.
  3. Lower Admin Costs – Our cost to your company is usually significantly lower than your own internal costs. Pro Source handles payroll, benefits, recruitment advertising, hiring, DOT physicals, drug screening, taxes, and everything else associated with employees. All you have to do is report their weekly gross earnings and you’re done.
  4. Decrease in Liability – CDL drivers are the highest risk element when it comes to insurance costs. By eliminating drivers and/or warehouse personnel from your coverage, you lower your overall risk factor. This will lower company costs for the entire organization.
  5. Return On Investment – By utilizing Pro Source, the money saved by your company can be reinvested into your sales force, your marketing campaign, new equipment, or anything else that is necessary to grow your business.

Five Key Essential Components for a Transportation Company

3pl driver leasing benefits contain 5 essential components

There are five key components that are essential for a transportation company to exist: Equipment, Maintenance, Fuel, Insurance, and Labor.

A successful fleet manager knows that he can only control the cost of Labor.  As external forces raise the price of fuel, insurance, equipment and maintenance, your margins continue to be squeezed. You can only control the cost of labor… where else can you bring those margins back to profitability?

With Pro Source, you will know your exact labor cost for an entire year and can rest assured that this cost is constant. Knowing this cost is constant is key to budgeting for transportation executives.

What is “Pay As You Go” Workers Compensation Insurance?

warehouse personnel services and 3PL solutions Pro Source is one of the few CDL driver leasing companies that utilizes pay as you go workers comp insurance for the benefit of the client. Most companies have to pay 25% -40% of their premiums at the beginning of the year. This number is based on projected payroll for the upcoming year.

For example, ABC Inc has fifty employees, with each earning a salary of $50,000. ABC Inc would have a projected paroll of $2,500,000. If their insurance company requires 40% paid up front, ABC Inc would have to pay $1,000,000 before cutting one payroll check.

With Pro Source’s “Pay As You Go” workers comp insurance, this cost is already built into the rate so you avoid all up-front costs and increase your cash flow.
