Starshipit own fleet FAQs

Seller own fleet meaning

Seller own fleet refers to a situation where a seller, typically a business or a company, owns and operates its own set of vehicles for the purpose of delivering goods or services directly to customers. This can include a wide range of vehicles, such as cars, trucks, vans, or even ships and aircraft, depending on the nature of the goods being transported and the geographical reach of the deliveries.

What are the benefits of a seller own fleet?

Owning a fleet allows a seller to have more control over the delivery process, including the ability to customise delivery schedules, maintain a consistent level of service quality, and potentially reduce costs associated with outsourcing delivery to third-party logistics providers. This can be especially advantageous for businesses that rely heavily on timely and reliable delivery as a part of their value proposition to customers.

Custom fleet meaning

Custom fleet refers to a set of vehicles that has been tailored or specifically equipped to meet the unique operational needs or preferences of a business, organisation, or individual.

This customisation can involve modifications for enhanced performance, specialised equipment for particular types of cargo, branding or aesthetic changes, and adaptations for improved efficiency or to comply with specific regulations. Custom fleets are designed to optimise transportation and logistical operations, ensuring that vehicles are perfectly suited to the tasks they are intended for.

Own fleet meaning

Own fleet refers to the scenario where a company or organisation has its own set of vehicles for transportation or logistic purposes, rather than relying on leased, rented, or third-party logistic services.

This approach allows the entity to have direct control over its transportation resources, including maintenance, scheduling, and routing, potentially offering greater flexibility and cost savings in the long term. An own fleet can encompass a wide range of vehicle types, tailored to the specific needs of the business, such as delivery vans, trucks, cars, or even specialised vehicles.

Can I start my own fleet as a retail business?

Yes, you can start your own fleet as a retail business. Doing so can offer several advantages, such as enhanced control over delivery schedules, the ability to offer personalised shipping options, and potentially reduced shipping costs in the long run.
