    How does one get involved with being an owner operator wanting to delivery goods using a 24 box truck making around $3500 a week? Does anyone know how to get started? Please share. Thanks

    Depends on a lot of things, Shelby — you’ll need authority to haul if you’re moving interstate, customers, etc. Assuming you have your own truck, which it sounds like you may. If you’re running a Class 8 truck and are interested in doing what the teams here are doing, primarily expedited freight, call around to some of the companies mentioned and inquire about leasing opportunities. You may well be more attractive to them if you have a team driver, but that’s not exclusive. I’ve talked to solo drivers leased to expediters, too, of course. Good luck.
