Human Resources, Payroll, Risk Management, and Applicant Tracking for Logistic Service Providers
Logistics is one of the largest industries across the globe. Based on the belief that communication, flexibility, and openness are the keys to success in the logistics industry,1 logistic service providers (LSPs) can increase profitability with the help of a PEO like Human Capital.
LSPs consists of different sectors, including, but not limited to:
- Trucking, rail, and sea carriers
- Courier, express, and parcel companies
Implementing automated operational efficiencies is reshaping the industry and workforce. At Human Capital, we believe automation is important when discussing human capital management (HCM) as well. Human Capital has a specialized LSP program that provides an attractive solution for any business that operates in the various LSP sectors.

Recruiting and Employee Retention for LSP
Logistics positions have come from referrals or personal networking (29%), promoted internally (21%), or used an online job search (15%).3 Because 42% of LSP workers state that they’re open to better opportunities and only 33% are content in their current positions, it is imperative for LSP employers to actively recruit with hiring best practices and maintain or increase employee retention through added or unique benefits and competitive pay.
Human Capital’s fully integrated applicant tracking system (ATS) and performance management tool (PMT) are developed specifically for streamlining the recruitment processes. The ATS removes manual data entry and paperwork, while also maintaining open communications with potential candidates. Additionally, our PMT software highlights personal development opportunities and high performance growth to further support with your company’s mission and vision.
LSP Performance Management and Skills
As the LSP continues to grow, it is important for LSPs to refine and expand their core competencies. One of those core competencies is incorporating top tier recruiting and employee retention efforts. With 86% of shippers utilizing LSPs to improve customer service,4 it is critical for LSPs to utilize performance management to improve employees’ skills and careers.
Not only can Vfficient Human Capital’s HCM technology track and monitor your employees’ skills and training, Vfficient offers a robust learning management system (LMS) to help further develop your workforce. Our LMS enables training departments and HR teams to collaborate and track web-based courses.
