Our business has had the good fortune of consistent growth in the past; however, lately, we’ve been growing at a decreasing rate. As a small certified women/minority business enterprise, we are competing against larger nationwide corporations. In order to generate new opportunities for the company, we have decided to invest in a new facility.
Upgrading to a new facility will improve profitability and efficiency in multiple ways:
- We are able to expand on our core capabilities. We formed a partnership with a company we currently provide our services to. The new facility will have a fenced-in secure storage facility both inside and out. We will be relocating large tourism buses to our facilities, storing them, then relocating them to their final destination after they are purchased. We are now earning revenue three times on a single vehicle!
- This allows us to open up contracts to other similar current and prospective clients.
- Improved Operations & Service Process Structures. We will be reorganizing the layout of the office internally to improve communication channels between dispatch and drivers as well as between Sales/Marketing and clients.
- We are currently strategically located with our headquarters in Merrillville, Indiana. A glance at the nation’s map will show this area – the greater Calumet region – is the nation’s transportation hub. Just 35 miles from downtown Chicago, CLR provides easy access to major transportation facilities, including interstate highways, major airports, and rail and bus terminals.
These are just a few of the benefits that come with moving into our new facility. It was a big decision to make; however, the changes put the control in our hands. Instead of relying on technology to make a difference, we are expanding our capabilities to improve operations so we can more effectively do what we do best—personal customer service.
