    One sure fire way to lower fuel costs dramatically is to install a hydrogen fuel booster. The Highline Wildcat is just the ticket!

    Truckers who works for brokers are STUPID.
    Brokers keep 60% of the freight charge…….

    how else to find loads then?

    Don’t listen to greedy truckers. .If you take home 6500 -9500 a month. .that’s good enough. ..

    Get your own m.c. and then advertise your company on goggle

    I can’t figure out how you make any money. .taking loads for 95 cents a mile plus f.s.c…that’s a dollar 1.30 a mile now..If the fuel prices are 4.00 dollars a gallon. .my truck costs 65 cent a mile to run loaded with 44,000 lbs or more..so that leaves me with 65 cent..plus take off at least 40 cents for fuel taxes, income taxes, road taxes, insurance, plates..what I have left?..25 cent a mile…why do I need to own a truck? ??
