The trucking industry is set to grow at least 20% over the next few years and the owner operator has an average salary of $100,000 per year. In addition, as an owner operator in California you get to decide what kind of truck you want to drive. You could decide on flatbed, tanker, reefer, and dry van, to name a few! You can haul what you want, where you want. The possibilities are endless!

What to Expect as an Owner Operator in California
