Trucking is easy, right?
You just load, drive, unload and repeat.
Yeah, the truth is — it’s nowhere near easy.
Your days start early and run long. The hours add up. You watch the clock and diligently plan your route to stay legal so the on-board recorder never says you’re “out of hours,” in the middle of nowhere.
If you’re not moving, you’re not getting paid. Weigh stations or minor repairs often slow you down. And keeping up with new software, government regulations, and trucking rules is a full-time job.
As an owner-operator, you’re doing all the above and running a business to boot. What you do isn’t easy, and we know it.
We also know that, without trucking, America’s economy brakes to a halt.
