Client Success

Industries involving trucking, freight, or transportation deal with unique, unexpected problems on a daily basis, and quick solutions must be implemented on the spot to avoid shortcomings in meeting customers’ demands. CPA’s at Barrett and Co. work with you so that you can utilize financial records accurately and effectively in order to make prompt and wise decisions.

Solution:

One of our clients in the refrigerated trucking business, expressed concern with feeling a lack of control in being able to manipulate their financial information in order to efficiently make decisions. As they continued to haul their goods up and down the I-5 corridor from Canada to San Diego, we helped them strengthen their accounting records, and improve their understanding of their transportation costs by reviewing accurate interim financials on a monthly basis. We coached our client to view their business on a per mile basis, and as a result we were able to scrutinize the costs that were out of line and help our client track cost savings associated with technological innovations.

With a better grasp on their financial information, our client now outperforms other competitors in their industry year-after-year. They are more proactive and can immediately pin-point the areas where the business is not performing well, and they are aware of how they are performing relative to other competitors in their industry. Rather than feeling like they have no control at all, our client now knows exactly what they can and cannot control.

In their words:

“There’s a lot that goes on in our industry that’s out of our hands. Something is always broken, busted or needs to be repaired and the price of fuel is constantly fluctuating. By reviewing our financial statements with our CPA’s at Barrett and Co., we were able to feel a sense of control and see areas that our business was spending too much in costs and identify customer relationships that were hurting rather than helping our business. Through visual charts and graphs, we immediately had a better understanding of our financial information and how we measure up to other competitors in the industry.”
