TODAY’S TIP: Prepare a budget, a business plan and a cash-flow statement before applying for a loan. A budget will assure the lender that you can meet the financial obligations of owning a truck. A cash-flow statement shows that your projected revenue will meet current obligations. A business plan outlines the details of your operation, including the types of freight, the lanes you’ll run and the rate you’ll be paid.
