5 Great Reasons to be Your Own Boss in the Trucking Industry

Everyone knows how hard truck drivers work every day to get the job done. Whether it’s the long hours, schedule delays or bad weather, it takes a ton of dedication to get those loads delivered. Whether you have worked for a trucking company for years or just a few months, have you ever dreamed about starting your own trucking operation? In other words, what would it be like to be your own boss?

Believe it or not, it might be a lot easier than you think. In fact, your friends at RoadEx can play an important part of making that dream a reality.

Let’s look at 5 reasons why being your own boss in the trucking business is a really great idea.

You’ve Always Known You Could Do It

Let’s face it. Not every person out there has the ability nor the interest to operate their own trucking business. There are others however, who know in their hearts that they could be really successful if they put their mind to it. If you are confident that your experience over the road and lifelong hard work ethic is a winning combination, you owe it to yourself to explore the possibility.

More Money in Your Pocket

Let’s face it, we all know that you are not out there busting your ass every day for your health. It takes a lot of work to make a living as a trucker and keep the bills paid. Becoming an owner operator has the potential to significantly increase your income. Who doesn’t want that? You’ll make more money and build a valuable business at the same time.

More Freedom

As an owner operator, you choose what loads to take on and the schedule you are going to work. With your own business, decisions on how to run your operation are completely in your hands. While that kind of freedom comes with more responsibility, the truckers we talk to say that it is well worth it.

Owning a Rig

Buying a tractor-trailer can be an investment, but the potential financial return, and the pride that comes along with it can be incredible. Owning a truck not only allows you to operate your own business, but it is also a valuable asset that can be turned into cash later down the road in life.

Tax Savings

As an owner operator, you are entitled to a good number of tax deductions and other related benefits that driving for someone else doesn’t offer. Maximize your profits and income each year by taking advantage of tax laws specifically designed for independent truckers.

Getting Started
