Guidance for transportation and logistics companies

Large or small, transportation and logistics companies face similar challenges, which include:

  • Driving growth during extended economic uncertainty
  • Managing risk effectively
  • Improving operating efficiency with no loss of customer satisfaction

These challenges make accounting and reporting critical for assessing strategy and operations. The DHG Transportation & Logistics group can advise you on the tax implications of your financial performance and long range plans while working with you to eliminate waste and realize a better return on your investments in people and technology.

We offer comprehensive accounting and advisory services for trucking companies, with in-depth review and measurement of operations to improve margins:

  • Fuel-savings analysis
  • Lease or buy analysis
  • Maintenance programs
  • Leasing and financing arrangements

We also provide guidance in these matters:


Tax strategies to align company and personal objectives

You want to mitigate your tax liabilities, which may require multi-level tax planning and compliance. We have extensive experience, ranging from large corporations to family-owned and closely held businesses, so we help you align your corporate tax strategies with personal tax and estate planning. Our services include:

We also connect you to a global community of accountants and advisors through our Praxity alliance for guidance on new markets, growth initiatives and tax matters.


Advisory services for the way forward

We can help you make informed business decisions using your financial and operating data. If your company is weighing options for growth, we can help develop tax and cash flow projections along with financing alternatives.

We call upon a wide-range of resources to serve as a global positioning system for your company — showing you where it is and illuminating the possible ways to get you where you want it to be.
