Marketing Strategy & Useful
Advertising Terminology

The clientele of trucking companies may come from all walks of life but there are a few strategic potential clients that need to be prioritized. These are larger companies that ship on a regular basis or freight brokerages.

A few other key characteristics of the clientele include regular demand for shipping services, a need to ship to various local or even international destinations and an ability to pay well. Reliable customers are typically interested in the best price to quality ratio rather than the most affordable trucking services out there.

Over the years, another type of client has emerged. This is the individual or company in need of dedicated fleets. In this case, shippers hire trucks that work exclusively for them. These are larger B2B clients that typically enter a long-term partnership with the trucker.
