    Hello fellow O/O's , as I wait on my Authority and continue my research as to getting started hopefully in about a month from now , I was hoping to get some advise on what are the best
    1- Load boards
    2 - Eld companies ?
    3 - processing agents for my BOC-3 and why do their price range so much ?
    4 - Load brokers that won't shunt new O/O' s , 5 - who are the best freight factoring companies from your experiences ?
    I see LOVES actually does freight factoring.
    Any advise will be greatly appreciated and I'm looking forward to seeing you all out on the road soon. Stay safe & blessed fellow O/O's.

    1. ITS and DAT
    2. KeepTruckin'
    3. Become a member with OOIDA for $45, and they'll do it for free.
    4. There's very few brokers that won't work with a new authority. Don't sweat it.
    5. There's enough brokers that offer quick pay that you'll never need to factor.

    Those fees are stupid. Wait your 30 days and keep all your cash or negotiate a good deal with a factoring company
     
    Midwest Trucker Thanks this.

    Don't factor and have at least 3 months running capital. Only a certain few brokers won't work with you , some want 3 months or 6 months.
     
    Vitkouski and Midwest Trucker Thank this.
