Dedicated Contract Carriage

One of CST’s greatest assets as a Dedicated Contract Carrier is that it can be integrated with our other transportation solutions. Most frequently, our ability to provide outstanding Container Drayage services is a significant value-added feature, thereby offering fully-integrated supply-chain solution.

By definition of an efficient marketplace, every company does something at which they excel. Nevertheless, some functions can be more efficiently outsourced/ subcontracted. In CST’s Dedicated Contract Carriage (DCC) division, we believe that five key benefits result when all, or even some, of your transportation function is outsourced:

First - Focus
The outsourcing company can truly focus on its core competency. For many companies, transportation is not a core competency. At CST, that’s 100% of our focus.

Second - Service
As above, service should only improve if using a carrier whose core competence is transportation excellence.

Third - Economics
After all costs have been factored (driver costs, unit costs, maintenance, insurance, management staff and oversight, etc.), outsourcing often saves a company time and money.

Fourth - Capital
Money can most often be better spent investing in core business rather than tying up capital related to tractor and trailer purchases.

Fifth - Liability
There is nothing better than outsourcing exposure/ risk when you can.
