Custom WordPress websites have an incredible number of pluses. The numerous advantages make WordPress one of the most used CMS systems worldwide. Especially for the logistics and transport industry. We highlight the main advantages of a WordPress transport website.

1. Easy to manage.

Many of the Dutch transport companies do not (yet) have a marketing department. All the more reason to choose a website with an easy to manage backend. WordPress is known for its user friendliness. Even experienced marketers are therefore eager to use it. 

The user-friendly design of WordPress makes it easy to keep your website up-to-date from now on. By working together with a WordPress professional you will improve the performance of your website and attracting clients online will become much easier.

A good example is the new, lead-generating website we built for AVIA. Read the complete success story here.

2. Track and trace module

When you choose WordPress, it is important to go for customization instead of choosing a template. This distinguishes you from the competitors, is safer and fits perfectly with your business. Yet in doing so, it can't hurt to use a suitable plugin every now and then. WordPress is a world leader in business sites and so there are also smart solutions for logistics and transport. Think of a track and trace module.

A good WordPress professional uses plugins with caution and implements only the ones that are necessary. In addition, they perform weekly updates to keep plugins secure and current.

3. Own management system for customers

Do you want clients, customers, recipients, suppliers or other parties you work with to be able to look into their delivery? With a custom WordPress website you also realize a secure environment for clients. Here they can view information within their own environment. 

4. Online scheduling of appointments.

CarXpert is a garage formula and part of GroupAuto. They wanted a module that would allow customers to easily find their nearest garage and immediately schedule a workshop appointment here. A logistical challenge with 5000 car dealerships throughout Europe. For CarXpert, the automation of maintenance appointments is a very useful tool that can also provide great convenience for many transport companies. For example, let visitors quickly find your closest warehouses or schedule loads themselves based on truck volumes and departure times.

CarXpert offers the professional network of car dealerships where everyone can go for car maintenance and repair. There are more than 5000 CarXpert car companies in over 20 countries in Europe. And that number is growing every year.

5. Exhibit Offer

Various transport, logistics and haulage companies want to showcase their offerings. With custom WordPress solutions, this can be done in an organized way.

6. Showing Occasions in WordPress.

And displaying occasions is also an important reason for many companies to choose WordPress. There are a lot of elements that are important when displaying the offer. For example, you want to show images, an accompanying text, specifications, media, safety, economy and much more. The easier this can be arranged in the backend, the easier your job becomes. This is why many companies choose WordPress.

7. Mobile-friendly display

It is important that your website is easily viewable from all mobile devices. A WordPress transport website takes care of this automatically without having to enter things twice. This way it takes less time and your customers can quickly log on to your site or study the offer. Wherever they are.

And then you have the standard WordPress benefits. Like the easy management. The ability to choose a multisite if you want to manage multiple websites in 1 CMS or communicate in multiple languages. And the fact that WordPress is well ranked by Google.

Do you have special needs and unique requests? A WordPress professional will help you further with custom solutions. This way you will always have a website that meets your needs.
