Updated Jul 13, 2022

While leased owner-operators don’t have the pressing need to provide a trailer that most independents do, they often find trailer ownership has significant earning potential. Leased owner-operators who own their own trailer gross about 6% more, or $10,000 annually, than those who don’t. They keep more than half that.

The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm. Download the comprehensive "Partners in Business" owner-operator business manual, covering topics from start-up to expansion with multiple trucks. There, find much more information about the ins and outs of safety, maintenance and business processes, among a myriad other topics.
