Dedication is the key
In today’s competitive e-market, many companies try to offer something to everyone, which can cause them to slip into being mediocre at many things instead of the best at one.

With a large staff of employees dedicated to trucking, CitiCapital can provide owner-operators value that other companies can’t. “Our division is made up of people who focus on nothing but the trucking industry,” Piccolo says. “Our competitors haven’t been in the industry for as many years as we have; they don’t have the expertise that comes with our history.”
