April 2023 Financials | Episode 129

Craig and I start off this financials episode by talking about one of the things that has the biggest impact on just about any business’s financials, sales. We have been doing some work to get more loads directly from shippers. Building new relationships with shippers is all about sales. We talk about the sales funnel below and how sales is a numbers game. Every healthy company does some kind of selling and we hope you learn something new from this discussion.

What To Expect From Episode 129

I’m feeling like a broken record. The freight market continues to be tough and our numbers are not fun to look at, but sticking your head in the sand like an ostrich is even worse. Before we jump into the numbers Craig and I discuss a couple of the things that help get through the challenging times. It’s a good discussion and worth listening to, especially if you are like me and could use something to help you refocus.

  • Total miles ran – 97,331
  • Deadhead miles – 5,239 (5.4%, not bad)
  • Total revenue – $177,508.38
  • All-in rate-per-mile – $1.82 (The worst we have seen in years, probably since I was driving)

Haulin Assets realized a loss of $8,221.70. No sugar coating this month. May is going to be more of the same, but things did get a little better towards the end of the month. Not sure yet if that was temporary because of Memorial Day or if it will turn into a more permanent improvement.

Impact Tip

Build the leads in your funnel. Find at least 10 shippers you call to get your funnel started. Once you have gone through them, reevaluate and improve your process and do it again.
