    Hello,

    I have been dreaming to be in the trucking industry since i was a kid, and still
    would love to get into it.
    Recently, I downloaded some load(freight) platforms (DAT/Uber Freight/Amazon Relay,etc)
    to do some loads with 26ft truck (Rented from Penske/Ryders/Budget) and they are asking me to
    upload some information including the proof of insurance, MC, DOT, etc. ):

    I wish i could have my own truck and paperwork to do some loads for an extra income,
    but it is out of my budget...

    Can any owner operator helps me to get loads for 26ft box truck?
    I am a hard worker and of course, i can share the portion of profits that i make.


    Please send me the message if someone can help me to ungate the load platforms.
    Thanks!

    Why would anyone hire you when you have no insurance?

    Thanks for the reply.
    Even if I buy the insurance from truck rental company, it sounds odd??....
    I think they have the 1M supplemental liability insurance, Cargo Insurance, Damage waiver, etc

    You need your own policy and MC number. You are not allowed to transport freight without it. The insurance you get from the truck rental company doesn't cover it.

    This is one of the most heavily regulated fields there are. You really need to find out how to get legal.
    Fist step is every dollar you are planning to spend, write out a check and send it to me. The end result will be the same for you, but at least you're not giving it to Penske.
    If you still choose to give all your money away, but not to me, go to ooida.com and become a member. Ask them what needs to be done as there is a lot you need to know.

    LOL... Its not as easy as just finding a load and putting it on a truck. If you were to somehow manage to get a load the way you are going about it, the DOT would shut you down at the first scale house you came across.

    This is a very highly, federally, regulated industry... You need licencing, insurance (several different types actually), authority, and much more before you can transport even one single box of freight.
