the ABCs of Trucking:
- Would you accept a career with no opportunity for advancement if it meant living a lifestyle you would rarely find anywhere else?
- Would it be worth risking your life every day for the satisfaction of knowing you're moving our economy forward and making people's lives easier?
- Would you give up your personal privacy and leave your home for weeks at a time to put food on the table and a roof over your family's head?
What I Dislike About Today's Trucking Industry
What I Like About Today's Trucking Industry
If you're still debating about whether to use a truck dispatcher for your trucking company, or whether to use this one or that one... keep in mind a few things about us:
Did you know that even tho you have your own authority and you're only a one truck operation that you still need to keep a Driver Qualification File on yourself?
so you're on your way -- you've gotten all your ducks in a row and now you're on the road, making money. you're able to maintain your truck & trailer, you're factoring your loads, you're negotiating great rates from brokers... but now you want to add some trucks so you can increase your revenue.
have you been sitting at a shipper or receiver and it's been 2+ hours since you checked in? were you on time? did it just make you want to pull out your hair?
-maintain at least a 6-second following distance.
so you enjoy driving.
Since you've stepped out on your own, are you chasing down brokers to get paid?
If you've been in a truck, you more than likely started at a company. They had their own rules. Their own regulations. Their own ways for pay, hometime, and discipline. Even if you owned your own truck.
Do you run logs electronically via software you downloaded from a website or do you run paper logs?
Do you know what it takes to book a load with a broker?
Do you know the first few steps in getting your authority?
