Tanking independent — Meet owner-operator Dan Bollinger

| November 06, 2011

“It can be labor intensive. You’re loading and unloading several loads a day.” When we talked in September Bollinger was coming into the heavy season for his niche. “Last Friday I drove almost 600 miles and hauled five loads,” he said. “I had my logbook maxed out for those days. The fall and the end of the winter is the busiest time. In the summertime, [cattle are] out on grass. In spring, they’re out on the wheat grass.”

    Great article, Todd.

    Always a pleasure to read about successful owner-operators, people who find their niches and make them work. Nice tip of the hat to McPhee. Thanks.
