As your transportation and logistics company (TLC) grows, the administrative aspects of your business require more time and resources. Outsourcing your HR and benefits responsibilities to a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) like GMS can help.
Growing Demand in the Transportation Industry
Due to the increase in popularity of online shopping and continuous urbanization, the transportation industry has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. While high demand for shipping and transportation is surely a boon for TLC owners, it can also be challenging to fill your talent pipeline and keep costs low, especially when rising fuel prices and workers’ compensation claims threaten your bottom line.
