Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
The recent cold-snap across much of the USA has been the latest difficulty to hit the trucking industry which has struggled throughout 2013 with a lukewarm economy and legislative changes that have hit it hard. The cold weather and the snow and rain that it has brought have meant an increase in wear and tear on vehicles as well as delays that have increased drive-times nationally leading to higher fuel and staffing costs as well as making it harder than ever for drivers to meet the challenging deadlines demanded by the industry.
Ahern & Associates has been assisting trucking and logistics companies for almost 30 years as the leading consultants for mergers and acquisitions as well as an industry leading operational review process. They recently launched their 15th consecutive Christmas fund-raising drive for the St Mary’s Food Bank Alliance and have received an amazing response from the industry which has once again responded with tens of thousands of dollars in donations. To show his appreciation CEO Andy Ahern is setting up a business crisis hotline where business owners and managers can call in and speak to one of Ahern and Associate’s top level business consultants for up to an hour at no charge and with no obligation. Regarding the hotline Andy said:
“Just like with our work with St Mary’s Food Bank the idea is to give back and help out those who need it. Winter is a particularly challenging time for the trucking industry and we want to do everything we can to help.”
The hotline will be up throughout the holiday season and comes on top of Andy Ahern’s weekly business advice and newsletter The Ahern Advisory, now celebrating its 16th year of publication, which is read by over 450,000 weekly readers and is considered by many to be an invaluable source of industry commentary. Business owners and managers are invited to call (602) 242 – 1030 to be connected to one of Ahern and Associates’ business consultants who are among the most experienced minds in the trucking industry.
