    Might be difficult to get loads from some brokers with new authority, other than that just do tons of research and you should be fine.
    If becomes too much of a hassle can always lease onto a carrier.

    Also hope you have money already saved for rainy day. Those always happen in trucking. Especially when starting out something new.

    If you want to run power only contact JB Hunt.

    I'm not sure but I think they take new authorities. Schneider also has a program but I don't know anything about the requirements.

    With that being said you will do much better with your own trailer.
     
    FreezingHot32 Thanks this.

    Amazon is a power only company, everyone pulls their trailers. Prime if you have your own authority, they will load you and you can use their trailers, fuel card etc.

    What part the country are you located?
    WTG(West Texas Gas) has all kinds of O/O’s pulling their trailers. Some are 1 man/1 truck, sole proprietorships.

    Schneider requires 6 months experience. JB Hunt has a lot of power only loads, you can check out their load board for free here I don’t recall if they have a waiting period, if so it’s only like 30 days. Coyote, if you numbers are brand new you’ll need to wait 30 days. You can read their. FAQ for more info.

    Realistically, you’re just going to sign up and fill out carrier packets, the good thing is most of it’s online now so it won’t take forever. They’ll all let you know their wait times for new numbers, worse case scenario you wait 30 days.
