Becoming a trucking company owner is not an easy task. There are mountains of paperwork, federal filings, and lots of legal wrangling to deal with. But there are tools and services out there to help.
OTR Solutions, the proud sponsor of The BTU Podcast, has the toolkit you need to form your own business, right down to the proper business email to help you get more profit from your negotiations.
Burnette Fortson, owner of 4TSON Logistics and an OTR Solutions customer, had an on again, off again relationship with trucking. He joined the military and after his tour of duty was complete, he became a company driver.
Not enjoying the company driver’s way of life, Burnette decided to re-enlist into the Army. After the second tour was over, he had a different plan. This time, he was going to be a true owner-operator with his own company and trucks.
Teaming with OTR Solutions, Burnette was able to hit the ground running. He’s now a small fleet owner, running a regional route with well-established relations with brokers, and thriving against difficult headwinds all companies are facing.
