Brand Messaging for Logistics Companies

Stand Out from the Crowd

Branding and messaging for logistics and transportation companies graphic.

Focusing on capacity and customer service is not enough—excellent support is the expected baseline. The real questions are, “what can you do for me, and how is your company different from the competition?”

Marketing & Brand Messaging

Marketing messaging is the ability to communicate quickly and effectively to let your target audience understand what you do, what you can do for them, and how you are different.

Integrating the right messaging into your sales and marketing programs has a direct impact on your business growth.

Website Design for Logistics Companies

Solving Problems, Generating Leads

Logistics and Transportation website design is at the center of all Logistics and Transportation marketing activities

Prospects are conducting their own online research to understand the solutions available to them—and then reducing the number of potential providers before making initial contact.

Your website is the primary source of information about your business—you need to get found, and then you have just a few seconds to make an impact. If your website isn’t compelling, you will be knocked out of the selection process before you realize you were even in the running.

Your website should:

  1. Describe what you do, what you do for your customers, and how you are different.
  2. Convey your brand, vision, and mission.
  3. Provide a clear path to the information your visitor wants to see.
  4. Have the ability to capture visitor information in the form of a marketing-qualified lead.
  5. Be dynamic, with updates on news, solutions and company successes.

While new customers are typically the focus for most business-to-business (B2B) websites, other target groups may also include existing customers, employees, new hires, and drivers. Talk to a Logistic Company Growth Expert to discuss your website needs,
