Bear it in mind that transportation is quite vast so which one do you want to go into and do you the technical and practical know-how to go into it?  Are you financially capable to handle it? You should have this at the back of your mind from the onset.  Next,  carefully consider the area you want to practice your transportation business. This goes a long way in determining whether or not your business will thrive.  You can’t bring cars into an area where only bikes can ply and expect to make success so know the area you are going into in and out. Some people might be of the opinion that they do not have the capital to go into their choice of transportation business because they think the only way to start is to start big.  That is so not true,  you can start little and gradually grow and expand your business.  It is even advisable to start this way because it avails you the opportunity to learn from experience without having so much loss, because the mistakes will be easier to correct. Consider it as you being in training, this way you get to have practical knowledge of the business until you determine the method that best suits you and that works well for you.  However if you have the capital and technical know how to start big then by all means do. Just ensure that before that you are well grounded on  all you need to know about the transportation business and that all the systems you will need to put in place for your business to succeed has been handled.
When you have acquired all the necessities to start your business, it is then time to do all the required registrations, get all the necessary licenses and join all the required unions and associations an example of which is the National Union of Road Transport Workers, so that you will not get any disturbances or interruptions in the course of your business. Don’t just join them but pay all the required levies and dues, if not you’ll spend more in penalties and fines. Observe the rules and regulations as that will help you avoid stress and save you a lot of money in the long run. It is also important for you to register your business with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), a lawyer can help you out with this.  When you are done with the registration you will be awarded a certificate with an RC number and that will show that your business is fully recognized.
Another important factor to consider is supervision.  If you are getting just one vehicle and you will be the one driving then there really is no need for this. However, if you are going to hire drivers then make sure there is a system in place to keep them in check. What is mostly obtainable is that drivers that are hired  to operate other people’s vehicles handle the vehicle very roughly because they feel that it is not their own, so they end up wrecking the vehicle in such a short space of time making the owners of the vehicle experience severe losses. Now this is not the only reason one has not hire reckless drivers, the safety of the passengers and other road users are also at stake. So be sure of your drivers before you hand over vehicles to them. Also create a system that will enable you to be aware of the state and condition of your vehicle as often as possible and to track the drivers so that you will not be taken advantage of and you will get all the profit you are supposed to make. Determine the method of remuneration for your drivers. You can go for either a fixed monthly salary, or a fixed weekly return from the driver. You have to put location, type and size of vehicle, the amount that other drivers make daily, and other necessary factors into consideration before arriving at a method.
Now that we have settled that, let us consider the various aspects of the transportation business that you can get into. You can decide to either be transporting people or transporting goods.  If you decide that you want to be transporting people then you can make your pick from any of the options listed below.
