Expedite Your Career

What’s the best part of being an owner-operator with a straight truck and hauling expedited freight? The parking availability, of course! O.K., all kidding aside, there are plenty of advantages to owning and operating a straight truck, especially when truck parking is at a premium. But it’s more than just the lack of 18 wheels or the smaller size and maneuverability of the truck. It’s the lifestyle that most expeditors say they enjoy – the mobility to take advantage of the sightseeing or tourist opportunities trucking can provide, or the flexibility to stop and visit family and friends who live far from home.
You may have found your niche in the trucking world, but have you found your fit in the expedited world? Choosing the right company to lease onto is just as important. Make sure the trucking company you choose understands that you chose a lifestyle, that you chose freedom – not only from parking hassles, but also from schedules and demands that do not work with your lifestyle choice. Because that should be the best part of owning and operating your own truck. That’s the best way to expedite your career – whether you’re running on 18 wheels or not.
