moving on up

In racing terms, October might represent the start of the last lap, with Truck Industry Council (TIC) T-Mark commercial vehicle sales figures confirming likely placings. Some, such as Isuzu’s perennial front-running form, leads to a foregone conclusion in total numbers and medium- and light-duty segments, with the battle for minor placings perhaps pointing to where momentum might lie. Elsewhere, makes are looking for something akin to personal bests in the struggle for higher ground. And then there is the big picture for the whole sector, with hope that a return to some sort of normality will come when an economic rebound starts, well, now. So, 10 months down the track, the numbers show a mixed bag. Total year-to-date (YTD) sales are at 27,842 after October’s 3,011. Of the most relevant – that is, non-spike –…

cash flow gains

ScotPac aims to improve cash flow to generate funds that all transport operators rely on Freight transport operators, particularly those in the road transport sector, have a large number of commitments that strain their cash flow and face varying levels of daily challenges – uncertainty of long payment terms and debt turnaround, fluctuating cash flow that can cause stress in managing day-to-day finance and fixed costs. For smaller operators the road can be more challenging as they might not have a huge buffer between operational costs and revenue generation; and if they are reliant on customers who take longer to pay, it really hurts their bottom line. In such cases, useful cash flow solutions such as invoice finance can assist, allowing businesses to draw down the value of invoices they are owed. This…

Everybody has heard the old motivational quote, ‘it’s not the destination, it’s the journey’. It’s one of those sayings rolled out to get you to stop and smell the roses along this hectic trail of life. Well, I’m all for motivational quotes and photos of cute cats with cheesy slogans but today’s story is the opposite of that. Today ‘it’s definitely the destination, not the journey’. Let me illustrate my point. The journey involved a 45-minute drive to the airport, a one-and-a-half-hour wait for a delayed departure, a five-hour ride in the big tin taxi, a 30-minute wait for my luggage and then another 40-minute drive to the tiny Western Australian town of Cardup. The destination: Colli Timber and Hardware’s old sawmill. It was here I got to see one of the classiest…
