PIB TIP: CHOOSING A TRAILER. Among all owner-operators, trailer ownership brings a $6,000 gain in yearly net income. Even with the additional costs of operating your own trailer, the average added earning potential in flatbed, dry van and reefer segments returns the investment in roughly two or three years. The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Freightliner Trucks.
Overdrive's Most Beautiful contest is back for a second year. Submit yourself or a female truck driver you know! The first-place winner will win a trip to The Great American Trucking Show in August and will be featured in a story in Overdrive. Submissions accepted through March 20.
