Guide to Using Taxi Trucks in Your Supply Chain

Picture this: your business is booming, orders are pouring in and your customers expect nothing short of lightning-fast deliveries.

You probably don’t even have to picture it. It’s your reality.

But here’s the problem.

When it comes to supply chain management, it’s not ‘nice’ to stay ahead of the curve.

It’s a necessity.

You need to get your goods delivered fast, cost-effectively and safely.

Because your customers depend on it.

This is where the taxi truck swoops in like your new logistical superhero, offering you the flexibility and efficiency you need to conquer the delivery game.

What is a taxi truck?

Taxi trucks (also known as parcel trucks / dedicated transport / on demand deliveries / point to point) are not your average delivery vehicle.

Taxi trucks cater for you, working solely for you until the job is completed. This might be a simple pickup from location A and deliver to location B. Or they can work for you doing solely your pickups and deliveries for the day.

They are highly effective for virtually any specific task – be it ferrying small parcels across town or transporting hefty equipment across Australia.

A taxi truck works for a specific company – dedicated to that company only.

Transport companies like DSE Transport manage the ins and outs of taxi trucks’ drivers, offering communication and support.

Benefits of hiring a taxi truck

There are five key tangible benefits that taxi trucks bring to your supply chain.

    1. They’re incredibly flexible

Most truck services operate on fixed routes, whether that be local trucking or linehaul transport.

The good thing about taxi trucks is that you can tailor your logistics solutions that align perfectly with your requirements.  If you need a vehicle for a quick job on Tuesday and nothing until a huge job on Friday, that’s totally okay.

Whether you need deliveries on-demand, at specific times, or following a particular route, taxi trucks are designed to accommodate your schedule seamlessly.

Taxi trucks are not limited by fixed routes unless you as the customer have particularly requested a route.

This level of customisation ensures that your goods are transported efficiently, minimising delays and optimising resource allocation.

With the ability to adjust pickup and delivery times according to your business’s fluctuating demands, taxi trucks empower you to stay responsive and agile in meeting customer expectations.

    2. It’s cost-effective

Taxi trucks provide a cost-effective solution by eliminating the need  your own dedicated fleet and associated overhead costs.

Instead of investing in vehicle maintenance, insurance, and driver salaries, you can leverage taxi trucks on a pay-as-you-go basis. This will optimise your budget and operational efficiency.

The cost-effective approach not only reduces financial strain but also allows you to allocate resources strategically, focusing on core business activities that drive growth and profitability.

Just think about your vehicle requirements too. Maybe you need a 6 tonne tautliner today or a 12 tonne crane truck tomorrow. If so, transport companies like DSE Transport have your taxi trucks covered.

    3. They’re extremely efficient and reliable

Taxi trucks excel in delivering goods swiftly and reliably. DSE Transport have many resources available to have your size taxi truck to you on time every time.

This is not just thanks to the professional drivers they drive them, but also thanks to their optimised routing systems and fantastic operational staff in every state to ensure swift movements.

Whether it’s navigating through traffic congestion, handling multiple stops efficiently, or adhering to strict delivery timelines, taxi trucks prioritise speed and reliability.

This efficiency translates into improved customer satisfaction, reduced transit times and streamlined supply chain operations.

By relying on taxi trucks for your transportation needs, you can ensure that goods reach their destination on time, every time.

    4. They’re scalable and adaptable

Whether you’re expanding into new markets, experiencing seasonal peaks, or adjusting inventory levels, taxi trucks can scale up or down to meet your evolving needs.

This flexibility enables you to respond quickly to market trends, optimise resource utilisation, and maintain operational agility.

By leveraging taxi trucks as a scalable transportation solution, you can navigate growth opportunities confidently and position your business for long-term success.

    5. Your product travels safer

DSE Transport send you your required taxi truck size, the vehicle is loaded and restrained, and it stays like that until the goods are delivered.

Your goods are not removed or reloaded into other vehicles – they are simply delivered directly for you.

There is little risk of lost freight, and your freight is not double or tripled handled. Therefore, it arrives at delivery exactly as it was packed at pickup.
