    Hey Truckers Report!

    I am looking to get into the trucking business...but don't know where to start as far as gaining a full understanding of the way the trucking business works.

    Please advise on how you go into the trucking business and where you started to learn about this biz.

    Reference material would be appreciated as would experience.

    Thanks for your time...Downtime is not good time!

    Sincerely
    TJ

    Thank you! I was reading a ton of those articles published In the Experienced Truckers advice...sounds like a tough start.

    What gets me confused is all the Paperwork/Legalities Involved in becoming your own O/O... any threads you know of dedicated to this?

    Thanks in advance,
    TJ

    No, I have not delved that deeply into being an O/O, I am but a student at this time, you may find this helpful though; http://www.ooida.com/
