Kenco offers Dedicated Contract Carriage (DCC) services that cover every aspect of operating a private fleet devoted to your business. There are many reasons that a company may consider DCC services, but some of the universal benefits are being able to better understand and control costs and reducing risks. Guaranteed capacity is another reason that some companies are choosing DCC services. There has been tremendous volatility in both capacity and freight rates in recent years, and many analysts expect these fluctuations to continue. Having a DCC service gives you greater control over costs and customer service.

OUR DCC SERVICES INCLUDE:

  1. Human resources management
  2. Claims and risk management
  3. Driver recruitment and training
  4. Route optimization
  5. On-line reporting and continuous improvement programs
  1. Real time visibility
  2. Potential revenue sharing on backhauls
  3. Complete regulatory compliance
  4. Commitment to environmental sustainability and innovation

SHUTTLE RUNS

Companies often need product to be transported between distribution centers and manufacturing plants or to intermodal drop off or pick up locations.

These short, repetitive runs are not attractive to some carriers and many owner-operators. To handle these necessary movements efficiently, a DCC shuttle fleet is often a lower cost high service producing choice.
