Starting a logistics business with connections


Establishing connections in the industry before creating a logistics company. The industry is not easy to understand and I guess you need one executive who fully understands the logistics business. Some people think that a logistics company is just a simple pick up and delivery function but you have to understand that you will be dealing with government agencies and also with the so called red tape and snags.


In any kind of business, it is foolish to start without any connections because you are like an island. Most of the business people that I know cultivate a friendship with the industry people so they will get a clear picture of the industry that will help them when the business opens. I know that it is not easy to get connections but it can be done.
