Choosing a Carrier
The increased revenue that can come from changing carriers is easy to understand, but the cost involved in making that switch often is overlooked. It can be thousands of dollars when you consider all the downtime involved in searching for the new fleet, going through orientation and other interruptions of your routine. When you look closer at revenue and costs instead of just pay per mile, net income might not be any better at a different carrier. First, search for carriers that pull the kind of freight and run in the geographic area that interests you. List as many potential carriers as possible.
