9 Profitable Transportation Businesses You Can Start Now

Transportation is an industry that is flourishing. In the modern world, vehicular travel transforms the very face of the commercial world. A transportation business, is therefore, a very wonderful opportunity to earn the quick buck. Here are 8 such transportation businesses that can really help you flourish commercially.

1. Courier Service

This is one of the most basic options you can choose. Using the fleet of vehicles at your disposal, the simplest way to use them would be to take on consignments and deliver accordingly. You could even choose location specific consignments and deliver within a given urban space. A good record keeping system is mandatory for this process.

2. Airport Transfer Service

Every year, millions of tourists travel around the world. An airport transfer service is absolutely plain and simple. All one must get is a vehicle, some driving skills and a plan to carry out the entire thing. Airport transfer vehicles are sometimes equipped with special permits to allow them to park at otherwise unavailable areas of the airport.

3. Bulk Shopping Contractor

Businesses actually thrive on bulk shopping contractors. Using your vehicles, you could gather goods for local businesses from a wholesaler or a dealer. Then, these may be passed on as deliverables to businesses across your city or urban space.

4. Household Removals

More and more people are shifting. While reasons can be plenty, some things always stay constant in terms of moving in and moving out. Large items of furniture, items of rare or precious value, etc. are some of the basic items that people face trouble in transporting. With a household removal service, you can fill in the requirement gap, all the while staying close to the real purpose.

5. Charter Service

Charter services are incredibly successful ventures. You probably already know how it works. A paying customer is allowed to book the car for a select number of hours. The vehicle may then be used to serve the customer, often a private user. The bill amount is dependent on the time lapsed after rent, the number of miles and other overheads, such as parking or emergency fuel.

6. Livestock Transportation

On first glance, livestock transportation may seem like an option that need not be explored, but there is great potential in this category. Livestock transfer is significant, as you will be dealing with live creatures. First off, a dedicated vehicle must be acquired. In some countries, the law specifies the minimum requirements on such a vehicle. You can look for delivery trucks here on truck1 marketplace. Paperwork is important, and contracts need to be examined closely. Transfers are conventionally higher priced than normal transfers.

7. Yacht Charter Business

Starting a yacht charter business sounds appealing – spending your days on a luxury yacht, cruising to exotic destinations, and hanging out with “the rich and the famous,” says Nikolaos M, yacht charter director at Cosmos Yachting, London and Athens-based international yacht charter company. Maybe you’re looking for a lifestyle change – or just a change of pace. Perhaps it’s an opportunity to be your own boss.

8. Specialty Cargo Transfer

Special cargo is another area which needs a lot of focus. In the absence of people who volunteer to carry out these transfers, competition is low, and the market pricing is loosely monitored. Special cargo involves the transport of unconventional products, which may be anything from jewels to airplane parts. These transfers are a big responsibility, but the revenue earned is worth every penny.

9. Senior Citizen Services

Many senior citizens travel from their homes to malls, relatives or friends’ houses, or to an endless list of places. You could help provide a specialized transport service that carefully helps them to their destination and brings them back safely home. These are required for those who have little time on their hands and want a personalized pick up and drop for their elderly.

There are endless possibilities in the transport sector. Start now and choose your preferred mode of work. This is one industry that will continue to grow now and in the future.
