Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
With three additional assignments recently, Ahern & Associates continues its record-breaking year as it maintains its position as the leading trucking and transportation management consulting firm. Ahern has earned a significant track record of handling complex consulting assignments for transportation and trucking clients, resulting in a positive financial turnaround for their businesses.
Ahern & Associates is a management consulting firm specializing in the trucking and transportation industry. Since 1987, CEO Andy Ahern has led the company in aiding hundreds of buyers in mergers and acquisitions of trucking companies and logistics companies, as well as restructuring and evaluating existing carriers that look to increase operating efficiency and improve profitability.
The first new assignment was to provide an operational assessment for a company interested in selling its business in the future. Ahern & Associates reviewed all of the facets of the business, reviewing management, operations, maintenance programs and managers. Additionally, Ahern reviewed its cost of purchased transportation and provided an exit strategy to sell the business at a specific targeted selling price. Andy Ahern and his team have helped dozens of companies in transition and with successor planning.
The second assignment involved a customer who was interested in improving their bottom-line and reducing company maintenance costs. This was a profitable carrier that Ahern has done business with in the past, which allowed Ahern & Associates to leverage previous experience coupled with an eye for the future. Ahern completed a thorough assessment of the client and instituted a maintenance program to control inventory, reduce costs, eliminate overhead, and increase efficiency.
The third assignment was to review an already successful company and determine ways to increase its profitability. At the same time, this was an absentee ownership, and the company wanted to make sure that the employee incentives were proper, the management staff was sufficiently motivated, and the company itself could position to sell either to management or an outside party at some point in the future. Ahern consulted the client in boosting profitability now while also setting up for success down the road.
