Numbers Review We are just over half way through the year. What do your numbers look like? Do you track your revenue? How about your expenses? Do you track your fuel economy? What about your rate per mile to the truck? All of these numbers will tell us how our truck is performing as well as how our business is doing. If you do not track any of these numbers, how can you know if your business is growing or about to go broke? While this year has been a challenge for many of us,...

LET FREEDOM RING! The Fourth of July gives us the opportunity to celebrate the freedoms that we all enjoy. While there are many inside and outside of our country that are trying to take our freedoms away, the truck drivers that I have met believe in the freedoms that our country affords us all. As independent contractors we can appreciate the freedom to have a business and work in that business in a legal and safe manner. Lately, there are some who are trying to take away our...

It Takes Two

Of course, most drivers would indeed prefer the solitude of the open road. Who wouldn't? You get to take your work with you and make money wherever you go. No boss or supervisors to answer to (other than perhaps dispatch and the Department of Transportation), and you're touring the countryside over the wide-open road. What's not to like about that? As appealing as driving solo can be, it's often accompanied by the risk of losing out on extra cash by limiting oneself in earnin...

When beginning a new job, many people simply want to learn their role and focus on only what they were hired for. If they're hired to pick up a phone to answer and make calls, then they'd make sure to just learn that job. That's it. If they're brought into a company to process paperwork, or maybe they're a sales or tech specialist, then that's what they do. Focus on the task at hand and only do what you were brought in for. Some folks out there excel at more than just one thi...

A while back a friend asked me if my husband and I ever have a chance to sightsee while we are on the road. I replied that for the most part we do not. This conversation allowed me to reflect on how many drivers take the opportunity to get out of the truck to see and explore. Do you? Where do you go? What have you seen? We were on the East coast and were invited to see the sights with another team with which we are friends. We had a great time seeing things like the Liberty B...

Driving as an Independent Contractor

Posted: Jun 3rd 2024 8:00AM
The best thing about being an independent contractor is that there are an endless number of opportunities in the world that allow you to be your own boss. Some of those opportunities are certainly difficult to attain, while others are more easily accessible but sometimes far less enticing. Whether you're an experienced owner-operator or an independent contractor looking to get into the expedite industry, choosing the right carrier to run for makes all the difference in the wo...
