Three components of operations: buying, making and moving. Today, we are going to talk about MOVE. And you might think you have move taken care of, I can tell you that you probably don’t. The reason why is there are a lot of very big companies that have made a lot of money of small and growing companies like yours because they are able to hide a lot of fees that you are not aware of or they are able to pull tricks that on your report card you think you look good, but in actuality, in your checkbook, you don’t look good.

You might be guessing, so why not at least from the move perspective, with the transportation perspective. Do you really know what’s going to happen with fuel next year?
