HOW TO SET CHARGES IN LOGISTICS BUSINESS

 


Let’s take Lagos delivery for instance; you can deliver goods anywhere in Lagos at the cost of #200. But a typical delivery in Lagos cost #500 and logistic outfit charges more. For a start you can charge #500 as a flat rate for any location. Since you will be delivering in volume the cost can be spread out.


But as the number of customer increases you can then set different charges according to locations.


PROFITS IN LOGISTICS BUSINESS


Assuming you have about 10 businesses that uses your service and each sales 100 items averagely in a month. This means in a month you will have 1,000 deliveries. If you enter agreement with the companies to charge #400 for 1kg of item to deliver around Lagos or your location, in a month you will realize #400,000 for 1,000 items delivered.


By the time you deduct expenses like; fuel, recharge cards, engine oil, salary, bike maintenance maybe plus miscellaneous you will have about #200,000 as a take home pay for a month.
