Tips For Branding Your Shipping Business

A solid branding is the foundation of your business. It will help you stand out from competitors, make your audience interested, and set the tone for your marketing materials.

You can see the power of branding with brands like Coca-Cola, Netflix, Apple, and Spotify. From their logo to their color scheme to their ads that you see everywhere, you only need to see one thing and know immediately that it’s them.  

Want to make your business as popular and recognizable? Start with these three things:

Create a well-designed logo

Your logo should communicate to your customers your speed and reliability in transporting their packages. You can do this by adding elements emphasizing motion, such as arrows and clocks, or slanting your text to the right. 

You can also add your transportation method to your logo. This could be a ship, airplane, truck, or motorcycle. 

Color is another important factor in logo design. Use color psychology to find the color that is suitable to the image that you want to portray.

For example, blue logos are seen as professional and secure. Red is seen as bold and innovative. Meanwhile, green is seen as natural and eco-friendly. If you have a zero-waste packaging service, green is a great color. 

Come up with a memorable business name.

Next on the list is your name. Your name should be unique yet easy to remember and spell. You don’t want to make it difficult for your customers to find your business, right?

You can also be a bit more creative or descriptive with this. You don’t want just to be “John Smith Delivery,” as there are a million John Smiths worldwide! Try using words that describe speed, such as swift, zoom, or express. 

Stuck on this step? Don’t worry; our business name generator can help you. Just enter a description for your business (For example, “motorcycle parcel delivery that offers express same day delivery”), and we’ll instantly give you some names to choose from. 

Harness the power of marketing.

Lastly, spread the word about your business! 

Make sure you have a well-designed and easy-to-use website. You should also have a social media account so customers can easily reach you and be updated with your business. 

You can also run brand visibility campaigns in Instagram Ads or Facebook Ads to make yourself known to more people. 

Shipping Logo Design Examples

Let’s now look at various shipping and transport logo concepts that you can take ideas on for your logo design. We’ve divided them into three categories: 

Truck Logos

Trucks and transport vans are one of this industry’s most popular design elements as they are the most typical shipping method. You can find them in art styles such as minimalist, abstract, modern, or cartoony.
