Na wa. the moderators are you not going to release fullforce for so that he can continue posting for our enjoyment
|Re: Free Training On Haulage Business In Nigeria by fullforce: 9:41am On Apr 23, 2010|
Thanks be to God and to you all that are patient with me for all this while. Today we are continuing on How to set up a successful haulage business: other factors to consider include the following:
7. BUSINESS PROPOSAL: You should have a business proposal that you can send to you prospective investors. The proposal should contain:
a. Historic Profile of your company
b. Managerial set up of your company
c. The good job you have done some people in the past and presently
d. What the investor tends to gain in the investment
e. The risks involved and their solutions and so on.
8. DEED OF AGREEMENT: Your lawyer should help you in preparing a comprehensive but simple to understand Deed of Agreement stating clearly the terms/conditions involve in the contract. Don't enter hastily into agreement that you can not fulfil with an investor, because once you signed, you legally binded.
9. FREIGHT RATE: Some companies will ask for your freight rate to different kinds of places in Nigeria, so make sure you know very well places and the cost expenses that you will incur when transporting good to places. The expenses will include:
i. Cost of Diesel/fuel
ii. Trip Allowance for the Driver and the motor-boy
iii. Loading Allowance
iv. Illegal tips to the "Boys Scout" on the road
v. Goods-in-Transit Insurance
In other case, there are some companies that have their regulated freight rate which you look into, to be sure it will be good enough for you to deal with them
10. DOCUMENTATION: Be sure your vehicle documents are complete and valid to avoid the embarassment of the so called "Boys Scouts" on the road. Not that you will not tip them but if your documents are correct they will be pleading to you to give them not you begging them to help you.
And many other factors that time will not permit to mention here.
See you next time. Call me on 08037207231/07026446990 or email: [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]
It is WELL!

INTRODUCTION: EARTH MOVING EQUIPMENT
Outsourcing is the key strategy in this Business where a client /company come to lease or hire your equipment/truck for a said agreed term and rate per day (8hrs) or payment per trip in term of trucking i.e. haulage of products.
Nigeria being a developing country requires massive infrastructural development in term of road, earth dam, parks, canal channelization and drain. Lagos and other state are trying to improve its capacity for service delivery to its populace, where new construction sites are springing up daily; these sites engage professional leasing company to execute the strategic plans in land preparation such as bush clearing, levelling, excavating, construction works and sand filling.
Earth moving equipments such as Bulldozer, Excavator, Pay-loader, Roller, Grader and Low-bed (carrier) are used daily at enormous cost associated with the industry for this project. Specialised company such as Julius Berger, PW, OGORMA and Hi-tech are fully engaged and overstretched interms of equipment capacity. They now also sublet contract to equipment vendor to execute on their behalf and pay upfront.
In this business your products and services you always sell is your integrity as a person and your equipment performance within the period of usage. The widely used brand is caterpillar because of its durability, strength and knowledgeable of the equipment by the technician.
A key parameter in this business is for your staff to be conscious of safety at all time and use the equipment for its original purpose.
Over the year private and public have engaged service of non professional to handle equipment rental without technical expert to run and maintain the business. But a technical person with fore-knowledge of the business and large data base of clients and agents can start with only one equipment and move the company to enviable position with proper accounting best management practice.
The equipment leasing / rentals have annual turnover of over #4Billion in operational capacity either procurement/rentals. It’s a big market awaiting major player to step in and advantage of the incentives that come with the business. The only major players in the business are: TRI-STAR equipment rentals, Samchase equipment, PTS equipment, OGORMA and Badewa group. The market is so large that requires newcomers’ every day. A key advantage is that all these companies cannot meet the needs of all the clients.
Good equipment will achieve result in no time while boosting the image of the company. Equipments such as Bulldozer, Excavator and Pay-loader can either be indirect or direct lease to a company or place in daily rental of #75,000, #80,000 and #55,000 respectively with a projected forecast of 15/18days when starting business operation and maximum of 22/24days per month at peak period.
Our strength lies in our ability of having foreknowledge of the business, knowing the agents and cartel that control the business industry with prompt customer satisfaction, good maintenance plan in place, we will be the company sort after in our chosen field. The client engages the equipment for 8hrs/day for various contracts i.e. daily, weekly or monthly. This contract must be accompanied with a contract agreement duly signed by both parties and payment made upfront in cash or open cheque.
MARKET STRATEGY AND SALES
Market strategy adopted in this business of leasing/rental is commission base system where agents is been paid 5% commission on whatever contract signed; by doing this we will built a network of customer around us and break into the cartel that control the business with maximum patronage on booking.
Maintenance is also a key factor in equipment leasing; if your equipment has less downtime the client cartel will always recommend the equipment to other. Proper maintenance prolongs equipment life span (preventive/plan maintenance rather than breakdown); the equipment requires servicing after running 180-200 hrs of operational time.
The operator must daily greasy all moveable part of the equipment. It’s strictly recommended that after using the equipment for a period of 3year should be put on sale to cut down maintenance cost and downtime.
The staff professional conduct and safety precaution during operational hours go a long way in customer satisfaction and help to maintain good relationship.
The equipment leasing and hiring strives most during the dry season than the raining season. More emphasis on income generation will be harness during the dry season. Land preparation the advent of the business toward the quick achievement of desire result in construction industry and many companies invested their larger parts of their resources toward this.
The current road network situation in the country will be an added advantage to the business to pave the way of elevation to its peak success. To provide solution to this road problem, there is a need for large use of heavy weight equipments which will be an added advantage for whoever who is investing in the business now.
The day to day running of the business lies in the hands of the manager who oversee/inspect the machine and its place of work (site) for safety reasons. The success of the business rest on manager and the operator of the machine, they are responsible for the equipment, inspect the site of work and recommend the right machine to be used. Manager must ensure that operator carry out the basic maintenance check on equipment and submit report on the weekly activity. There would be an office where the machine(s) will be parked when is idle and it will be easy access location to prospective clients. With the introduction of commissioning system put in place, one will be able to use as many agents to networking for the company. This in turn will make the equipment in particular to have maximum patronage (booking).
REDEFINNING OF PLAN
The investor has an opportunity to comment, contribute or adjust the above business planned by bringing his opinion. Negotiation on the operation or financial package is also welcome. A proper M.O.U with equity sharing of the business should be put in place.

FOCUS IS SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DO THE RIGHT THING AND LOVE WHAT YOU DO

|Re: Free Training On Haulage Business In Nigeria by fullforce: 5:50pm On Jun 04, 2010|
Am very sorry for all this while that I have been off the line, it is due to the fact that you learn every day in the businesss no matter your years of experience. The day you stop learning, you start dying, God forbid!. Inspite of my worthwhile experience in this haulage business, I went through "HELL" in recent times.
Haulage business like other businesses has its own share of risk and that am going to share with you in today's topic:
RISKS INVOLVED IN HAULAGE AND THEIR SOLUTIONS
1. JOBLESSNESS: Please do not enter into haulage business as a result of frustration from not getting white collar job or else you will be met with a lot of joblessness in this business as it is not business as usual due to the economy meltdown in the country and stiff competitors and other factors. Infact, many haulage managers are finding it difficult to pay the investors their monthly return.
SOLUTION: Try as much as possible to get job before you enter into agreement with any investor, except if the vehicle is yours then you can take the risk. Go out to companies to secure contract as major or minor transporter, because once you sign the agreement with the investor, he starts counting calendar for his return without any story.
2. INVESTOR'S PRESSURE: Because the investors do not know what it takes to manage haulage business successfully, they tend to put pressure on manager to sign agreement of high monthly returns so that they can quickly realized their investment within the shortest possible and I don't blame them
SOLUTION: As haulage manager, do not rush into signing any agreement except you know the nitty-gritty of the business and its marketing.
3. ACCIDENT: Due to many factors ranging from bad roads to driver's recklessness
SOLUTION: Be careful most especially in employing driver, this I have talked much about. Install vehicle tracker to checkmate the attitude of the driver. Then as well make sure your investor obtain comprehensive insurance for your vehicle and not the third party insurance, as this is the most reliable way of rest of mind against accident.
4. THEFT: There had been cases where the driver at times collaborate with hooligans to steal the vehicle including the goods in it.
SOLUTION: It is another risk that you can afford if the vehicle has tracker and comprehensive insurance.
5. NON PAYMENT: Many companies are fond of owing haulage company money after tansporting their goods for them.
SOLUTION: The best solution to this problem is to haulage for a company that pay you immediately you return their waybill to them as an evidence of safe delivery and not the ones that tell you to wait till month end before they pay you and they will be carry debt over from one month to another month.
6. DRIVER: Like I said earlier in this thread that driver attitude carries up to 65% of the success in this business
SOLUTION: Check and read my posting on how to hire and deal with driver in this thread
7. MECHANIC: The same goes for mechanic. Read my posting as well
There are other risks that cannot be posted here and you might not know them until when you enter into the business and experience them.
Till we meet in the next class.
It is WELL!

MUCH HAVE BEEN SAID ABOUT THE TRUCK BUSINESS THAT YOU NEED TO GET INVOLVED IN IT BEFORE YOU RIGHT YOUR OWN STORIES ABOUT IT. IT IS VERY LUCRATIVE AND EASY TO MANAGE ON PAPER SOMETHING BUT IN REAL OPERATION IT'S INVOLVE MORE OF EXPERIENCE MEANWHILE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TRUCKS WITH THEIR PECULIAR OPERATION.
HAVING SAID THAT ON HAULAGE, THOSE WHO HAVE GOTTEN THEMSELF INVOLVE CAN ALSO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCE FOR OTHERS TO LEARN FROM IT. AT THIS JUNCTION I WILL LIKE TO BRING YOU BACK TO MY MAIN BUSINESS THAT CAN NEVER FAIL WHOEVER THAT INVOLVE IN ANY WAY. HEAVY WEIGHT EQUIPMENT BUSINESS, YES IS VERY CAPITAL INTENSIVE BUT ALSO HAVE A LARGER PROFIT TO JUSTIFIED THE CAPITAL INVESTED IN IT.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR INVESTMENT AS MUCH AS N15M THAT CAN PAYBACK WITHIN 1 YEAR WITH A COLLATERAL, I SAY WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF BUSINESS.
|Re: Free Training On Haulage Business In Nigeria by omolayo1(m): 8:58pm On Jul 24, 2010|
I WAS AT KADUNA PARK AND APAPA PARK TODAY TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON ABOUT LONG TRUCKS, THERE I CONCLUDED THAT HAULAGE MARKET CAN BE SATURATED. DO YOU THINK IS A LIE, TRY GO THERE AND SEE FOR YOUR SELF LIKE 500 TRUCKS LYING THERE FOR NO JOB OR MAY BE FAULTY. MANY STORIES FROM PEOPLE MEANWHILE SOME ARE SMILING TO THE BANK AT THESAME TIME. BUT TOO MUCH STRESS INSIDE SOON AT ALL THE LOADING TERMINALS, IS NOT EASY.
THERE I GOT THIS IDEA , I HAVE AN 18 TIRES TRAILER WHICH I'M NOT TOO HAPPY FOR IT'S INCOME AND I FEEL LIKE WHY ME IN THIS BUSINESS. NOW I WANT TO SELL IT OFF TO BUY MACHINES THAT I KNOW FOR SURE THAT, IT WILL NEVER DISAPPOINT ME IN ANY WAY BUT THE MONEY CAN NEVER REACH ANY WHERE TO BUY IT. NOW I WILL NEED ABOUT 3 PEOPLE TO PARTNER WITH ME TO GET THIS DONE. BEFORE I SELL, I WILL LIKE ANY INTERESTED PERSON(S) TO LET US DISCUSS THIS. CALL ME OR EMAIL ME ON 08059239292 OR 07025866759 AND MY EMAIL IS AUTHORISEAUTHOR@YAHOO.CO.UK

Hello to the house,
Though it has been long I posted last due to one reason or the other especially when I found out that some scrupulous people are using my free training to milk innocent people and while I was giving it free, they are using it to fatten their bank account.
To the business of the day, I don't agree with the comment of OMOLAYO and am bold to say that trucking business is still lucrative and depending on how you enter into it. Other factor you need to know is what kind of truck do you invest in.
Before you jump into it ask the GURU 08037207231 or 07026446990 or [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email].
You will never regret you do.
I can tell you the kind of truck you go for, where to get job and how to make profit out of this business.
The class will soon resume fully.
It is WELL!
|Re: Free Training On Haulage Business In Nigeria by omolayo1(m): 7:50pm On Aug 04, 2010|
i think you are getting the message wrongly. All am trying to say here is based on my interaction with 80% of those who call for the business without knowing the nittygritties of the business from onset before buying their truck. knowing what its takes to be in the business is different from hearing that the business is lucrative and you jump into it which is the case of many ppl that fall into the pit of the point i'm trying to make here. my friend, you know what? some ppl are just hustling to get money for one truck or two believing that, with all they read from paper and internet will take them to the promise land but we on the field know that its beyond all these which i'm trying to correct. sometimes i feel pity for some ppl that do call from abroad that they want to buy truck(s) and come to manage themself(what kind of advice will you give this kind of person base on your experience?).
Different trucks for different jobs with different managers. Managing of truck as in maintenance sometimes are thesame, but managing on their different field of work is totally different (ask fullforce about this). All in all of this business of haulage is experiences you gathered overtime.
|Re: Free Training On Haulage Business In Nigeria by fullforce: 8:03pm On Aug 04, 2010|
In the House,
All I want everyone to know is that every business has its own challenges and more so Trucking business goes beyond flatbed trailer. There are various of them that you tap bucks in your bank account.
It is WELL!

|Re: Free Training On Haulage Business In Nigeria by omolayo1(m): 9:37pm On Aug 07, 2010|
it is high time that you join the league if you have the money.
The construction business in Nigeria is a Multi billion dollar industry with hardly any year falling short of expected windfalls befalling successful contractors who bid for construction projects, the last 5 years has witnessed increasing patronage and profits for most construction companies in Nigeria.
This is especially seen with some publicly quoted companies like Julius Berger Plc, Costain West Africa Plc and G. Cappa Plc which have recorded steadily rising profits with the last two just recovering from years of consistent loses.
Many others which are not publicly quoted are rapidly expanding their operations to meet up with greater challenges such as PW ltd, Lekki Concession Company and Hitech all of which are handling major infrastructural projects like Road and Drainage reconstruction/expansion and Land reclamation (from the Lagos lagoon) projects.
Recently a number of development projects by government and private sector companies have created opportunities for construction companies to reap massive revenues.
For instance, in recent times in most states of Nigeria infrastructural projects like road reconstruction, housing projects, bridge building, construction of drainage, dams, rural electrification, city expansion and beautification projects among others have been on the increase especially in Lagos, Rivers and Akwa Ibom states where massive amounts of money running into tens of millions of dollars have been voted for capital projects.
For those who are calling for management of their truck, i think this is an opportunity from fullforce. it is the truth i know much about the business but i'm not willing to do it full time at all meanwhile my experiences/advice in the business is meant for sharing to whoever in need of it anytime anyday.

Tipper business in my own opinion is that easy at all. I bought a 20ton tipper and gave it to someone (a friend) to manage. The first three month, the returns were good only for the story to change afterwards. I do not really know what the problem is
1. because I had to move from the town where the tipper is to another city quite far away for a new job
2. Because those times concided with the rainy season and the truck is in Ajah, so i tend not to want to argue with him too much
I am really tired. I am thinking of two options
1. To sell the truck and forget about haulage
2. To change the people operating it (manager and driver completely)
I need advice from senior collegues or even junior ones with experience.
The business no easy at all. I just cant imagine that I invested my savings only to be faced with this kind of wahala.
