“When the Rubber Hits the Road in 2012” is about transport cost accounting and how to recover the full cost of transport including a sufficient net profit to receive a decent return on your invested capital. Just like the days prior to deregulation. Deregulation did away with the uniform system of cost accounts which served the industry for over 50 years. Now transport carriers “scratch their heads” trying to figure out their full cost of transport including a profit.
“When the Rubber Hits the Road in 2012” returns transport carriers to a new and improved system of managerial cost accounts that calculates the transport margins available for owners and managers to know when they reach a breakeven revenue point and are “in the money”…daily, monthly and yearly. The system of cost accounts is easy to setup and works. By using our system of costs accounts, coupled with current accurate and complete income statements on a per mile basis, you’ll be on your way to growing your business and reaching a solid return on your investment.
Motor carrier transport is and will remain a utility industry, essential to our economy. The sole focus and purpose of this handbook is to provide transport carriers with the knowledge and tools needed to produce a fair and reasonable return on their invested capital.
