Transportation thought leadership (access to an expert on a retainer basis)
Transportation Thought Leadership on an Hourly Basis: On-Demand Expertise
In the fast-paced world of transportation, businesses often require immediate access to expertise without the bureaucratic delays of creating and approving purchase orders (PO). At CPC, we understand this need, and that's why we offer our clients the option to engage with us on a retainer basis. This approach allows clients to tap into our knowledge and experience as needed, without the burden of traditional procurement processes. Here's a detailed look at how our hourly consulting option works, the distinction between project-based and hourly ad-hoc consulting, and how numerous clients benefit from ongoing access to CPC's market insights and expertise.
Hourly consulting with CPC provides clients with a direct line to transportation thought leadership. It's a flexible and efficient way to access our expertise, and here's how it operates:
- Immediate Access: With an hourly retainer, you can reach out to our experts when you need assistance, without the delay of formal agreements.
- Pay Only for What You Use: We bill you solely for the time and expertise we provide, ensuring that you get value for your investment.
- Customized Support: Whether you need advice on a specific issue, market insights, or strategic guidance, our experts are available to address your unique transportation challenges.
Project Basis vs. Hourly Ad-Hoc Consulting
Project Basis: This option is ideal for clients with well-defined, longer-term projects usually lasting for 3 months or more. It involves a structured agreement and dedicated resources for the duration of the project and a tangible/measurable outcome.
Hourly Ad-Hoc Consulting: Hourly consulting is the perfect choice for clients who need flexible, on-demand support for various, often shorter-term needs. It allows you to leverage CPC's expertise as a "just in time" resource. This can either be for shorter term needs or longer-term unplanned needs. For example, if you need a reliable consultant on a monthly basis to assist a Supply chain department in various undefined tasks, you can engage CPC on a retainer basis for 50 hours a month (more or less as needed), only paying for used time.
