Truck Bodies Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Truck Bodies procurement.

For example, Instead of customarily fixing the contract length to one or two years, buyers should determine the contract length based on market conditions and their likely impact on cost in future.

Performing regular preventative maintenance for the assets will help buyers achieve productivity and profitability. Moreover, performing preventive maintenance from time-to-time will help buyers sustain a highly operational fleet, which will reduce operation-related costs for buyers/service providers. Ineffective preventive maintenance will drive the additional cost incurred by buyers and increase in downtime of the fleets.

Buyers must accumulate essential data across their information systems and suppliers to create benchmarks for cost, quality and service levels for Truck Bodies suppliers.
