Additionally, you would need to choose what type of truck you would want to purchase. After that your duties would include being in charge of your truck’s maintenance, covering fuel costs, insurance, acquiring any equipment needed, and keeping your own log book.
There are many programs to look into when joining the field of owner operator trucking. For example, trucker advantage fuel cards can help make payments on gasoline prices. Also, owner operator leasing programs are available through the top trucking companies and can benefit you as an independent driver.
