Developing your Independent Contractors & Owner Operators Into Successful Business People

With ever increasing fuel, insurance, maintenance and equipment costs, the individual owner operator is becoming scarcer everyday. Trucking companies looking to remove depreciable assets and employment taxes from their books are enticing more company drivers to “make the move” to owner operator. Many that “make the move” fail.

Why do Owner Operators fail? Some reasons include:

  • A catastrophic breakdown occurs and there’s no money set aside for repairs
  • Failure to understand the revenue-cost equation
  • Failure to pay taxes
  • Administrative and transaction fees
  • And many more
