What Is a Business Plan?

A business plan provides a snapshot of your transportation business as it stands today, and lays out your growth plan for the next five years. It explains your business goals and your strategy for reaching them. It also includes market research to support your plans.

Why You Need a Business Plan

If you’re looking to start a transportation business, or grow your existing transportation business, you need a business plan. A business plan will help you raise funding, if needed, and plan out the growth of your transportation business in order to improve your chances of success. Your business plan is a living document that should be updated annually as your company grows and changes.

Sources of Funding for Transportation Companies

With regards to funding, the main sources of funding for a transportation business are personal savings, credit cards, bank loans and angel investors. With regards to bank loans, banks will want to review your business plan and gain confidence that you will be able to repay your loan and interest. To acquire this confidence, the loan officer will not only want to confirm that your financials are reasonable, but they will also want to see a professional plan. Such a plan will give them the confidence that you can successfully and professionally operate a business. Personal savings and bank loans are the most common funding paths for transportation businesses.

How to write a business plan for a transportation company.

If you want to start a transportation business or expand your current one, you need a business plan. Below we detail what you should include in each section of your own business plan:

Executive Summary

Your executive summary provides an introduction to your business plan, but it is normally the last section you write because it provides a summary of each key section of your plan.

The goal of your Executive Summary is to quickly engage the reader. Explain to them the type of transportation business you are operating and the status. For example, are you a startup, do you have a transportation business that you would like to grow, or are you operating transportation businesses in multiple markets?

Next, provide an overview of each of the subsequent sections of your plan. For example, give a brief overview of the transportation industry. Discuss the type of transportation business you are operating. Detail your direct competitors. Give an overview of your target customers. Provide a snapshot of your marketing plan. Identify the key members of your team. And offer an overview of your financial plan.  

Company Analysis

In your company analysis, you will detail the type of transportation business you are operating.

For example, you might operate one of the following types of transportation businesses:

  • Moving Van Transportation : this type of transportation company specializes in large vans or small fleet trucks to move individuals to a new home. Larger companies are able to move the family or individual to a different country.
  • Medical Transportation: this type of transportation company specializes in the transportation of medical supplies and/or devices and equipment.
  • Taxi Company: this type of transportation company focuses on individuals needing to get to different locations. These trips are often short and within the same city or neighborhood. Many individuals utilize taxi companies for pickup or dropoff from the airport.

In addition to explaining the type of transportation business you will operate, the Company Analysis section of your business plan needs to provide background on the business.

Include answers to question such as:

  • When and why did you start the business?
  • What milestones have you achieved to date? Milestones could include the number of clients served, number of positive reviews, reaching X amount of clients served, etc.
  • Your legal structure. Are you incorporated as an S-Corp? An LLC? A sole proprietorship? Explain your legal structure here.

Industry Analysis

In your industry analysis, you need to provide an overview of the transportation industry.

While this may seem unnecessary, it serves multiple purposes.

First, researching the transportation industry educates you. It helps you understand the market in which you are operating. 

Secondly, market research can improve your strategy, particularly if your research identifies market trends.

The third reason for market research is to prove to readers that you are an expert in your industry. By conducting the research and presenting it in your plan, you achieve just that.

The following questions should be answered in the industry analysis section:

  • How big is the transportation industry (in dollars)?
  • Is the market declining or increasing?
  • Who are the key competitors in the market?
  • Who are the key suppliers in the market?
  • What trends are affecting the industry?
  • What is the industry’s growth forecast over the next 5 – 10 years?
  • What is the relevant market size? That is, how big is the potential market for your transportation business? You can extrapolate such a figure by assessing the size of the market in the entire country and then applying that figure to your local population.

Customer Analysis

The customer analysis section must detail the customers you serve and/or expect to serve.

The following are examples of customer segments:individuals, seniors, families, and companies that need to transport their products.

As you can imagine, the customer segment(s) you choose will have a great impact on the type of transportation business you operate. Clearly, companies would respond to different marketing promotions than individuals, for example.

Try to break out your target customers in terms of their demographic and psychographic profiles. With regards to demographics, include a discussion of the ages, genders, locations and income levels of the customers you seek to serve.

Psychographic profiles explain the wants and needs of your target customers. The more you can understand and define these needs, the better you will do in attracting and retaining your customers.

Competitive Analysis

Your competitive analysis should identify the indirect and direct competitors your business faces and then focus on the latter.

Direct competitors are other transportation businesses. 

Indirect competitors are other options that customers have to purchase from that aren’t direct competitors. This includes transportation companies such as limousines, bicycle services, car rental companies, etc.

With regards to direct competition, you want to describe the other transportation businesses with which you compete. Most likely, your direct competitors will be transportation businesses located very close to your location.

transportation competition

For each such competitor, provide an overview of their businesses and document their strengths and weaknesses. Unless you once worked at your competitors’ businesses, it will be impossible to know everything about them. But you should be able to find out key things about them such as:

  • What types of vehicles do they operate?
  • What areas do they serve?
  • What type of transportation company are they?
  • What is their pricing (premium, low, etc.)?
  • What are they good at?
  • What are their weaknesses?

With regards to the last two questions, think about your answers from the customers’ perspective. And don’t be afraid to ask your competitors’ customers what they like most and least about them.

The final part of your competitive analysis section is to document your areas of competitive advantage. For example:

  • Are your vehicles more fully-equipped than the competition?
  • Will you provide transportation services that your competitors don’t offer?
  • Will you provide faster delivery time?
  • Will you provide better customer service?
  • Will you offer better pricing?

Think about ways you will outperform your competition and document them in this section of your plan.  

Marketing Plan

Traditionally, a marketing plan includes the four P’s: Product, Price, Place, and Promotion. For a transportation company, your marketing plan should include the following:

Product : In the product section, you should reiterate the type of transportation company that you documented in your Company Analysis. Then, detail the specific products you will be offering. For example, in addition to transportation services, will you provide GPS tracking, 24/7/365 service, client communication, and any other services?

Price : Document the prices you will offer and how they compare to your competitors. Essentially in the product and price sub-sections of your marketing plan, you are presenting the services you offer and their prices.

Place : Place refers to the location of your transportation company. Document your location and mention how the location will impact your success. For example, is your transportation business located near a warehouse district, an office complex, an urban setting, or a busy neighborhood, etc. Discuss how your location might be the ideal location for your customers.

Promotions : The final part of your transportation marketing plan is the promotions section. Here you will document how you will drive customers to your location(s). The following are some promotional methods you might consider:

  • Advertising in local papers and magazines
  • Commercials
  • Social media marketing
  • Local radio advertising

Operations Plan

While the earlier sections of your business plan explained your goals, your operations plan describes how you will meet them. Your operations plan should have two distinct sections as follows.

Everyday short-term processes include all of the tasks involved in running your transportation business, including cleaning the vehicle, any necessary mechanical needs the vehicle may require, fueling the vehicle, and informing clients of location and status updates.

Long-term goals are the milestones you hope to achieve. These could include the dates when you expect to obtain your XXth client, or when you hope to reach $X in revenue. It could also be when you expect to expand your transportation business to a new location.  

Management Team

To demonstrate your transportation business’ ability to succeed, a strong management team is essential. Highlight your key players’ backgrounds, emphasizing those skills and experiences that prove their ability to grow a company. 

Ideally you and/or your team members have direct experience in managing transportation businesses. If so, highlight this experience and expertise. But also highlight any experience that you think will help your business succeed.

If your team is lacking, consider assembling an advisory board. An advisory board would include 2 to 8 individuals who would act like mentors to your business. They would help answer questions and provide strategic guidance. If needed, look for advisory board members with experience in managing a transportation business or is connected to a wide network of professional associations.  

Financial Plan

Your financial plan should include your 5-year financial statement broken out both monthly or quarterly for the first year and then annually. Your financial statements include your income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statements.

Income Statement : an income statement is more commonly called a Profit and Loss statement or P&L. It shows your revenues and then subtracts your costs to show whether you turned a profit or not.

In developing your income statement, you need to devise assumptions. For example, will you take on one new client at a time or multiple new clients with multiple vehicles and drivers ? And will sales grow by 2% or 10% per year? As you can imagine, your choice of assumptions will greatly impact the financial forecasts for your business. As much as possible, conduct research to try to root your assumptions in reality.

Balance Sheets : Balance sheets show your assets and liabilities. While balance sheets can include much information, try to simplify them to the key items you need to know about. For instance, if you spend $50,000 on building out your transportation business, this will not give you immediate profits. Rather it is an asset that will hopefully help you generate profits for years to come. Likewise, if a bank writes you a check for $50,000, you don’t need to pay it back immediately. Rather, that is a liability you will pay back over time.

Cash Flow Statement : Your cash flow statement will help determine how much money you need to start or grow your business, and make sure you never run out of money. What most entrepreneurs and business owners don’t realize is that you can turn a profit but run out of money and go bankrupt. 

In developing your Income Statement and Balance Sheets be sure to include several of the key costs needed in starting or growing a transportation business:

  • Cost of vehicles
  • Cost of fuel and transportation overhead
  • Payroll or salaries paid to staff
  • Business insurance
  • Taxes and permits
  • Legal expenses

Attach your full financial projections in the appendix of your plan along with any supporting documents that make your plan more compelling. For example, you might include your vehicle lease or cost, types of customer you will be targeting, and the areas your transportation business will serve.  

Putting together a business plan for your transportation business is a worthwhile endeavor. If you follow the template above, by the time you are done, you will truly be an expert. You will really understand the transportation industry, your competition, and your customers. You will have developed a marketing plan and will really understand what it takes to launch and grow a successful transportation business.

The transportation industry is highly competitive, and a successful transportation business requires proper marketing, as well as an ability to find and retain customers. A good business proposal helps you to bid for opportunities more successfully and earn an attractive share of the lucrative market. Spending in the United States logistics and transportation industry was $1.3 trillion in 2011, according to SelectUSA, a site by the U.S. Department of Commerce that showcases the country as one of the world’s premier business locations.

Providing solutions to areas in which your client is disadvantaged because he lacks a good transporter should be the focus of your proposal. Articulate what makes your business unique to cater to the client’s needs. For example, if you are bidding to transport perishables, explain that your trucks are refrigerated to ensure products will not spoil while in transit. If you are seeking business from a company that deals with delicate and expensive items, explain that your company has boxes specifically constructed for such items. Add that you secure breakables with cotton and soft coverings such as bubble packs and that you have staff members with expertise in packing and moving fragile goods.

Outline the benefits that a client could gain from doing business with you. If your transportation services can offer fast, convenient, cost-effective and safe transportation services, state that in your benefits section. For example, if you run a non-emergency medical transportation company, mention that you are an approved transport service provider with your state’s Medicaid office. In this instance, advertising that you accept Medicaid will lead more clients to you.

Credibility

A winning business proposal must glow with credibility. If your company has won any awards, this is a good time to mention them. Ultimately, you want to provide evidence of your ability to deliver and have your proposal stand out among competitors’ sales pitches. Include testimonials and references from customers you have assisted with transport needs in your materials.

Communication

A well-articulated business proposal will win the minds and hearts of your target clients. Research what a customer wants and make sure your proposal meets those needs. Speak a language that your intended audience can comprehend. For example, if you want to offer transport services to an engineering firm, use appropriate industry-related terms. Prospective clients want to understand how you will cushion their equipment to minimize knocking, which can result in scratches and damages. They also need to know whether your trucks are able to carry heavy and bulky engineering parts and equipment.

The standard of living for everyone in the world has risen considerably with each innovation in transportation technology. This sector includes companies that supply transportation infrastructure, such as airplanes, trucking, railroads, shipping, and logistics business. A Transportation Business Proposal is a document that consists of the scope of the services that the business will provide, the target market, the business model used , and so on. The goal of this proposal is to expand the business and find new clients or partners.

Your proposal must show that you are capable of providing the services, goods, and logistics your clients/partners require. If you are interested in learning how to write your own Transportation Business Proposal, here are some guide questions to help you:

  • Who is your company?

Begin with an introduction such as a brief overview of your company.

  • What does your target client(s) need?

Tailor your proposal according to your prospective clients’ needs. Indicate why your business is relevant.

  • How does your company work?

Indicate the services, goods, and logistics your company offers.

  • How will you meet your clients needs?

Illustrate how you will meet the clients’ needs with transport business’ services.

  • What is your business model?

Indicate which business model your transport business’ will utilize.

  • What is your proposed development cost?

Include a brief but clear projected expenditures for your business.

  • What is your estimate financial analysis?

This section lets your clients decide whether your business is a good investment or not. Hence, include the the expected income, budget expenses, considerations, profit and loss estimates, and operating income for the specified time frame.

A flourishing business of any size takes a lot of time and probably a lot of money to build. In truth, much of the success in the transportation industry is based on meticulous planning and good old-fashioned hard labor as you bring your idea to fruition.

It is indeed a risky business but the profit is high and regularly transport of goods can take place. There are few things to concentrate in this business analysis such as a valid license, good driver, interstate transportation valid documents etc. The investment is certainly high but the returns are equally good.

Commercial jets can reach speeds of up to 955 kilometers per hour (593 miles per hour) and a significantly greater ground speed if there is a jet stream tailwind, while piston-powered general aviation aircraft can reach speeds of up to 555 kilometers per hour (345 miles per hour) or more.

Transport Business Proposal Letter

A transport business writes the business proposal letter. In this proposal letter, the transport-related services providers sell their services. When a transport company wants to expand itself or wants to earn more customers, it writes a transport business proposal letter.

A business proposal letter helps a transport company reach out to its targeted customers well. This can be ensured by effectively writing a proposal letter.

Just like any other proposal letter, this letter is also written to reach out to the customers who are likely to get the transport-related services. For example, this letter can be written to the head of a school as a school often needs transportation services for providing pick and drop services to students, teachers as well as other staff. The transport company can tell the management of the school that it is adept at providing transport-related services to those people who want to get timely pick and drop services.

This letter ensures that the head of the school comes to know about all the basic services that a transport company provides. This letter also enables the recipient to understand the need to have a transportation company’s services.

Often, the success of the business proposal letter also depends on when it is written and how. Therefore, you need to know when you can write this letter. There are some situations in which, writing this letter can be highly effective. Let’s talk about some of them:

  • When a business has been recently started and very few people know about its existence and the services it offers, the business proposal letter is written to let people know about this newly created company.
  • When a company already exists but is not working successfully, it can write this letter to win over more clients so that they can buy the services.
  •  When a school or an organization has made a call in a newspaper on its official website for proposals written by the transport company. The business proposal letter can be written in response to that call for proposal.

Here are a few tips for you so that you can write an effective proposal letter:

  • Keep the letter short and brief . The proposal letter must address the services of the transport company in a very concise manner. This can be ensured by adding no extra detail to the letter
  • The letter should be free from grammatical mistakes. This will let the recipient feel that you have shown serious interest in your work
  • Target the needs of the company you are targeting. For example, when you are targeting a school, you must do some research to know the basic needs of that school. Then, when you write the proposal letter, you will be able to target the exact needs of the business. When a business comes to know that you have a solution to all the concerns of the company, it is more likely to accept your proposal letter. 

Keep the content precise: Write to the point with good use of words.

Sample letter:

I am Mr. ABC and I am writing on the behalf of the transport company that caters to the transportation-related needs of people. Our transportation company comprises of a fleet of 10 buses. Each bus in our company can accommodate more or less 100 people.

Our company has allotted different routes to different buses at different times of the day. We ensure that our buses seamlessly rotate across the city.

We also allocate buses to schools. When it comes to providing transportation services to a school, we try to ensure that the teachers and students remain safe in our buses and reach their destination safely. Apart from that, we also ensure that our passengers don’t have to wait so long for the bus.

The drivers hired by our transport company are licensed and well-trained. We also use an identification and tracking system for all the buses we have in our system. If any bus goes out of the track, we come to know about it right away.

Our company is best at providing the best transportation services to its customers. If you want to know anything additional about our company, feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to hearing from you and we hope that you will consider this proposal.

Mention your name: Your signatures.

Transport Business Proposal Letter

Transport Business Proposal Letter

Just like any other business, the transport business also needs more clients so that it can expand itself and can stay ahead in any competition. The transport business also needs to look for ways that can effectively cut down its cost. In order to get more clients, the transport business needs a business proposal. This business proposal should be written in such a way that it can make the reader accept the proposal.

Writing the transport business proposal

For many people, writing transport business proposal is an intimidating thing. They want to get away with it whenever they feel the need to write one. However, it is not as difficult as it seems to be. Here are the tips that can be followed easily in order to write an effective transport business proposal

  • Introduce yourself within the letter. The introduction should be written in a concise manner. However, it should be ensured that the introduction should not be too short that it excludes some important points.
  • Mention all your services that you have to offer to the reader. Those services should be highlighted that you think are important for a reader to know.
  • Describe all the costs that the reader will incur when he will render the services provided by you.
  • End the letter by letting the reader know what you are expecting from him.

It is very important for you to write the proposal letter in a convincing matter since you are writing with the purpose of persuading the reader so that he chooses you over all the competitors in the market.

In the proposal, the reader should be told about everything that he needs to know about a transport company. If your proposal does not include some important points, it will make it useless for the reader. You can download the sample proposal letter as the template is available on a number of websites on the internet. These templates are required to be modified before they can be used. You can also customize them according to what you like in the proposal letter.
