PIB TIP: KNOW YOUR CREDIT RATING. Get a copy of your credit report before you attempt to secure equipment financing. Your credit history could contain wrong or hurtful information that you’ll want to explain to a potential lender. Always be up front about your problems. Showing that you have overcome hard times demonstrates determination and strong character. 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.
