All of your records should be converted into a profit and loss statement at the end of every month. The statement should show how many miles you drove, what your revenue was, what your costs were and how much money you made or lost during the month. You can compare month to month to see if you are improving. If you cannot produce the statement, work with a financial services provider who can do so.
The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm. It is sponsored by Ryder. The next Partners in Business seminars will be Aug. 22 and Aug. 23 at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas.
