Logistics Services Outsourcing - Road (Trucking) Industry

The trucking industry is characterized by low entry barriers and a commoditized nature of services, and this has led to a fragmented and competitive market. The rising cost of motor fuel has made a significant dent in the operating margins of companies in the trucking sector. Progressive players in this sector are eager to look for opportunities to move up the value chain and create customer stickiness by improving their service delivery. At the same time, they are looking to aggressively cut servicing costs since this industry is known to operate on slender operating margins. Trucking companies are working with outsourcing partners to meet these goals.

WNS has rich experience of delivering business process outsourcing services to some of the leading companies in this sector across processes that are central to their operations, as well as support processes like finance and accounting. WNS has gained deep domain knowledge of this sector and provides a bouquet of service offerings designed to help companies in the trucking sector achieve their financial and service delivery objectives.
