An Industry on the Move

Trucking is an $800 billion industry. As a critical part of the global supply chain and the economy, it continues to experience unprecedented growth. While trucks keep goods moving, the logistics and transportation industry is much broader. From truck parts manufacturers to trucking company safety and compliance to training, the industry relies on a network of medium and large businesses. The industry is lucrative, and there are lots of opportunities for transportation companies like yours. You can stand out from the competition. And you get more market share by using the right marketing strategy for trucking, transportation or logistics. 

Yet, many transportation industry leaders are asking themselves this question. Should we continue to focus on traditional marketing methods like cold-calling, brochures, and one-on-one meetings that have worked so well in the past? Or is it time to move toward building an online presence and embracing digital advertising?

Traditional Advertising and Deal-Making Still Work in the Trucking Industry

The way you’ve been doing things is still effective. You can still make a deal with a handshake in many areas of the trucking industry. There’s something to be said about that kind of integrity in an industry. But there’s a reason the industry is expanding its digital presence.

The Benefits of Online Advertising

The trucking industry still depends on costly traditional marketing and advertising methods because they still work. But have you noticed sales productivity is decreasing? All the while, the cost of acquiring and maintaining new accounts has increased. We’re seeing this phenomenon industry-wide. 

This is where building an online presence is a smart move. You can save money, boost sales reps’ productivity, and address industry challenges with an online experience. We use advanced trucking and logistics analytics to ensure your ad and marketing dollars are well spent. As a result, you get more out of your advertising budget.

It doesn’t matter if you need to market to truck drivers, other trucking companies, and businesses that need transportation of goods. It’s important to have a strong online presence.
