PIB TIP: DEVELOP A BUSINESS PLAN. A business plan

PIB TIP: DEVELOP A BUSINESS PLAN. A business plan outlines the details of your operation, including the types of freight you’ll haul, the traffic lanes you’ll run and the rate you’ll be paid. It lists the name, address and telephone number of the company you plan to lease to and a contact name to verify that lease. If you plan to run independently, list contacts for customers you will haul for.  The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Freightliner Trucks.
