Trincon Group has developed an operations manual that will instruct trucking companies on incorporating activity-based costing strategies to measure and increase efficiencies on multiple levels. The publication is the second in a series that Trincon will introduce in 2006.
This manual, which includes a 30-page publication and accompanying materials, is geared toward top- and middle-management professionals who oversee sales, operations and financial responsibilities for large and midsize operations. It demonstrates how to measure the profitability of pricing, the cost effects of time and distance, and the effectiveness of dispatch decisions.
The publication can be ordered with a complete package that provides a set of tools for companies to create an activity-based costing program. It includes a hard copy of the manual in a three-ring binder with dividers, plus a CD containing electronic versions of policies, scripts and documents in MS Word format, MS Excel versions of forms and spreadsheets, and an electronic copy of an informational white paper on efficiency and activity-based costing.
