Hey driver, Entering the truck transportation business for the first time as a new owner/operator trucker without having a well thought out businesses plan is exposing yourself to little more than a risky CRAP*SHOOT!
Are you seriously considering this line of work?
Well you'll need all the help you can obtain as you prepare a proper plan of action. There are several professional truckers involved with this web site. There also are a few freight agents and attorneys here to help. They would all like everyone who is interested in ownership to become
a successful small business person but that totally depends on you. The trucking industry is very unforgiving.
If you don't collect enough for your trucking services because you don't have a clue how much your operating expenses are you're headed for disaster. A fatal mistake many out here make on a daily basis is not knowing what the fixed cost are. The majority don't realize this until they find them-self in bankruptcy court. The highway is littered with the best of intentions but without showing a profitable bottom line you won't last long driver.
One of the original goals of this web site was to organize truckers while sharing the experience of those who have had many hard years out here hopefully saving a few new drivers from making repetitive major mistakes. The extreme headaches we have all endured over the years while learning the trade didn't come easy. Why re-invent the wheel driver if you can learn from those who have been in your shoes from day one.
In the meantime please don't give away your trucking services by working cheap. It doesn't do any of us any good so let's use this site to share helpful info in a professional group effort to make America's transportation freight system work a lot better for all of us.
The goal of our website is to make sure every trucker has the facts to use in making a decent living from operating their own truck . Why give away your labor for FREE or discount your freight services so that Wall Street can increase their profit margin in 2014? The bottom line is maintaining a profitable operation for everybody involved in this business not just a select few...
