    Where's the Money In Trucking???

    Awareness Of The Trucking Market Equals Money In Your Pocket...
    Where's the money in trucking? It all depends on the market need for trucks, the area, and even the time of day. Many of these things also depend on the overall health of the market. However, I experienced in any "average" market, average meaning not particularly strong or weak for an extended period of time, the demand for trucks to move freight from many areas, in an average market was so high.......see this article on my blog, right here on this forum.......Jo Bernard

    Challenge:



    Might I suggest you read the "blog" before you assume there is no money in trucking, then let me know "are you doing what that post suggest, and if you are not, you don't have the grounds to say, "there's no money in trucking, thanks. Jo Bernard

    In my opinion the question is. Can you make money in trucking, running legally?
    I'm beginning to think the answer is no. I'm going to get out if this is the case.

    In my opinion, if you have a contract to haul freight fine, but if you need a broker for all of it then no.

    Hmmm...How about all of the naysayers get out of trucking and leave it to the rest of us who do make money.....
