Fourth quarter is the time to analyze YTD performance and, using that analysis, begin to develop next year's Operations & Profit Improvement Plan. The link below is to a planning tool CostDown Consulting developed to help trucking company owners and executives begin development of their 2015 Operations/Profit Improvement Plan. After you download the file and key in your company’s specific YTD performance data, the tool will provide:
- Calculation of over 20 key performance metrics
- Forecast of the annual profit impact of various levels of improvement in four key performance areas
- Overview of the 5 steps required to develop an effective 2015 Operations Improvement Plan
