A refrigerated trucking company business plan is similar to the business plan that a standard short- or long-hauler trucker would use to solicit a private investment for expanded operations or to obtain a bank loan/LOC to start up a new business. A refrigerated trucking company can specialize in a wide range of items for transport. Frozen foods, medical products, and chemicals are all cargo that may require special transportation, and refrigerated trucking lines answer the call. A business plan for one should:
• Describe the market opportunity
• Define the territory you'll service (how far will you travel?)
• Outline the sort of cargo you will deliver
• Explain your background in the trucking industry
• Itemize start-up spending ("use of funds")
The plan should also include a personnel section if you need any part-time drivers, assistants, or other work that isn't outsourced or contracted. A marketing strategy showing how you intend to get new contracts and what channels your customers will respond best to is an important component as well. Lastly, the pro forma should provide at least three years or revenues and expenses for lenders/investors to review. There is a professional firm that can write a refrigerated trucking plan for you.
