    You probably won't get much help here. You are now "competition" to every OO on their own authority. They won't be too quick to tell you their secrets. So don't expect much.

    www.OOIDA.com can probably help. It's a business website for the owner-operator.

    You've come to the right place, but no one is going to spoon feed ya much info. Dig around on the forum a bit and you'll get the answers.

    Sounds like you're already in over ya head..... Or just bored and feel like trolling us..

    Isn't it crazy how easy it is too get your own authority today before Carter deregulated the trucking industry?

    @LuvBear are you trolling or are you seriously asking that?

    Seriously asking. It's before my time but I heard getting your own authority was hard. You had to be approved by other carriers, get a lawyer and all that good stuff. You had to tell them the exact route you were hauling as,well I heard.
     
    Midwest Trucker Thanks this.

    You are dealing with a period of regulation prior to the demise of ICC and Deregulation.

    J. B. Hunt is always looking for power only operators. Should be pretty good for the next month or two.
