How To Start and Maintain A Successful Trucking Business

Trucking Business is one of the biggest and most lucrative industries in the United States. Nearly 70% of all freight tonnage moved in the U.S. is transported on trucks. It takes over three million heavy-duty class 8 trucks and 3.4 million truck drivers to move 9.9 billion tons of freight annually. Without trucking companies and drivers, the economy would come to a standstill. According to the American Trucking Associations (ATA), there is a driver shortage in the U.S. with approximately 38,000 unfilled truck driving jobs, and they project that the trucking industry will grow 3% annually over the next 5 years. The U.S. government projects that the shortage could be up to 175,000 by 2024.

The trucking business can be very profitable, but it is incredibly competitive. Many truckers try to get into the business every year and end up failing. This outcome usually happens to people who are great truckers but are not good business owners. Knowing how to run and grow your trucking business takes more than knowing how to drive a truck or choose a route. The transportation industry is one of the most important in the economy because it provides consumers with access to products. Trucking is a critical part of the transportation industry overall. While large trucking companies are common, you could get started in this industry working from home with a single truck. First, make sure that you understand all of the steps involved in the process of starting your own trucking company.
