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.
