Current State Of The Trucking Industry


New Member
Hello Everyone, I'm considering becoming an owner operator but becoming a bit concerned. It seems everyone I'm talking to is telling me the industry is going through a slow time, drivers not getting loads, expenses going up, etc. I spoke to a guy with a truck financing company that said they are down 30% in financing first time owner operators and small fleet owners. Is now a good time to get into this or are you guys seeing business down over the past several months?

It's all about your comfort for level of risk. Some here haven't got much, others have a great tolerance.

Just like any small business. It'll be what you make of it. Just go into it with your eyes wide shut and be flexible with what you do.

Thanks for replying mndriver but are you seeing the small time owner operator business going through a slow time over the past months or is it business as usual?
