How to Start and Operate a Successful Trucking Company
What you'll learn
- Get a complete overview of major critical considerations and things that must be done to not only get the company up and running but build a solid foundation with efficient management control systems in place from day one.
- Learn about the failure and bad decisions of other companies who struggled and many that ultimately failed and how to avoid them.
- Clearly understand how to use powerful tactics and strategies which have been used by some of the most successful trucking companies in the country.
- If you want to be successful at running your own fleet then you are going to need a ton of specialized knowledge - and this course is a very good start in the right direction!
- Ideally I recommend you should have at least a year of experience as a professional truck driver before you actually start a trucking company. However anyone interested in doing so can take this course at any time and refer back to it as often as you wish.
- It is important to note that there are NO REQUIREMENTS that you have ANY truck driving experience at all nor that you yourself as a fleet owner even have a CDL so long as you don't intend to personally drive. Some successful fleet owners dont - however if you do have or get some experience as a driver first you have a much clearer picture of the whole business from all sides that is impossible to ever have otherwise. In the end though it is entirely up to you...
There has never been a better time to open and operate a trucking company than right now. Today due to many factors along with the availability of specialized information to you anywhere anytime thanks to the technology we all currently enjoy, you can learn lessons in hours, days and weeks that took others months, years and decades to learn and benefit from.
Trucking can offer you more than you may even imagine, especially as a successful fleet owner.
It is a business that can literally make you very wealthy in time - but ONLY IF you learn how to do it right and then actually go do it. This is not a get rich quick and easy without any effort while money magically fills your bank account kind of thing. It will take work, and plenty of it. It will take informed and intelligent decision making on a consistent basis. It will require from you dedication and patience along with a desire and ability to learn many new things and then go out and apply that knowledge.
To many failed trucking companies were started by drivers on a wing and a prayer and plenty of false assumptions. Many unfortunately believed that they would be successful fleet owners because they were successful drivers - some were even successful single truck owner operators.
They were sadly mistaken.
The skill sets and specialized knowledge requirements to successfully own, operate and grow a fleet are very much different. The scale is too - and mistakes are compounded. Seemingly little things have a way of quickly becoming a crisis - sometimes one that a rag tag company will not be able to survive. Such struggling companies will go under and inevitably soon be added to the the long and ever growing list of failed motor carriers.
Others do manage to survive. Sort of. They hump and bump along year after year operating ragged equipment and a ragged trucking operation overall - just barely good enough to keep from being shut down by DOT. Their internal operations and management are pitiful as are their key personnel who are neither the right people for the jobs they fill in some cases and not properly trained in others. Some suffer from both ailments.
Their drivers are poorly selected, inadequately trained, poorly paid and seldom if ever even recognized for their efforts. They have frequent customer service failures, accidents, incidents and all sorts of other problems. They also more frequently than not jump ship causing higher levels of churn than well performing carriers ever experience. The struggling carrier continuously suffers everything that goes along with it too.
A repeated cycle of more customer service failures, accidents, incidents, lost revenue and significantly more risk management issues of all kinds. The carrier of this type has high costs for everything and low profits so it always struggles to survive - in the same markets where efficient operators thrive.
Learn from decades of personal experience in all aspects of trucking company management and from the many lessons I have learned through it all. You can have the benefit of many years experience available to you immediately in just the short time it will take you to complete this course.

Entrepreneurship, business management, leadership, specialized tactics, and systems have been a major interest and focus of mine my entire adult life and remain so to this day. I have been a lifelong student of personal development and productivity improvement systems, which I have utilized in every position I have ever held. Over the years I have held a variety of positions in several businesses and as an entrepreneur, I have started, owned, and operated several companies of my own along the way too.
Today I work for my own company Transport Resource Solutions LLC - which is and always will be a specialized information and training company at its core.
Of course, we keep growing and evolving and also operate as a motor carrier and we produce and market other products - our foundation is training and specialized information, both internally as we grow and externally available through our courses and publications to anyone anywhere who wants my help and our help.
Every experience has taught me numerous lessons. Many of these lessons have been not only highly beneficial but also enjoyable - others were learned the hard and painful way, and while they certainly weren't any fun they were still very valuable learning experiences.
I have owned or co-owned a number of micro and small businesses including wood crafting, medical claims processing, commercial cleaning, transportation consulting, independent recruiting, real estate investing, and soap and candle making companies.
I can help you start a business of your own.
Courses are available for Online Business startup and Offline (traditional) Business startup too.
You can also learn all about trucking - if you are interested in becoming a driver or in achieving Trucking Business Success by owning your own trucking business.
Many years ago I started my own career in trucking - just as you may be considering doing now - and if you have never considered trucking take the time to look into what it offers before you just write it off. It might surprise you.
When I started my own career I set out with the intention of making trucking my primary profession and I wanted to learn everything I possibly could about the business of trucking.
What an interesting journey it has been over the last couple of decades and continues to be even now. Over the course of my years in trucking I have held many different positions including;
Professional Truck Driver
Third Party CDL Skills Examiner
Human Resource Director
Independent Owner Operator
These experiences have helped me in countless ways to pursue many other entrepreneurial opportunities. As a result of all these experiences and from working with all kinds of people including real estate agents, investors, entrepreneurs, and with hundreds of truck drivers over many years, I am able to provide you with a unique, complete and multidimensional personal account of exactly what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur - and for those interested - exactly what it takes to become a professional truck driver, owner operator, and trucking business owner.
While trucking is a fascinating business that offers many opportunities to you - it will demand much from you in return - and It is NOT the right business for everyone.
There is something that is a right fit for you. Finding the right work or business for you is the key.
There are plenty of choices available to you - including one of the most affordable and easiest businesses to start - an Online Business as an Affiliate Marketer.
You just need to gather information and then decide which business you want to start now.
Once you know what that is you can then start focusing your efforts on learning the skills and specialized information needed to shorten your learning curve, produce better results faster and that will help you achieve your own goals.
Life is far too precious and too short to waste working in businesses, careers and at jobs you don't like - so find something you do like - that is also profitable - then learn how to get started and then just do it!
Today every lesson I have ever learned from all my personal experiences and studies, including those I continue to learn, I now teach in my courses and workshops as well as through my books, manuals, and other publications.
Life is all about choices and you do have choices.
That is my passion in life - working with and helping people who want to get ahead in life instead of just getting by to find their own courses in life, and to help those willing to do the work to make it happen.
I look forward to getting to know you and to sharing information with you to help you do better too.
