In tough economic times good solid reliable suppliers are an essential for any business.
Quite often when companies tender for business they are often tempted to look at cost as the sole driver when setting on or using new suppliers. If that supplier is not very solid financially then there is a risk they may fail and let you down. How big a cost will this be for your business? Finding a replacement at short notice is often difficult to manage and very costly. The longer the interruption the greater the potential cost impact upon the business. When choosing a haulier we would encourage customers to credit check the carrier they select to ensure that the relationship has a good solid financial basis. After all the carrier will credit check the potential customer .With a shortage capacity now appearing at certain pinch points during the year this is perhaps now more important than ever.
