Fleet & Distribution Outsourcing

Should a water quality company consider distribution or fleet outsourcing? The question already has been answered. Companies in this field have been outsourcing fleet and distribution in some form or another since the industry began. In the fleet function, the tire service dealer, the body and paint shop and the electrical component rebuilder all are examples of outsourced fleet vendors. FedEx, UPS and Consolidated Freightways are core transportation service providers but, in fact, they also outsource many of the elements of their own transportation requirements.
