How to become an agent for a trucking company?

You have to go find a truck that is stuck. Then you have to use your body as an escape tool for them since it’s human nature for them not to move their entire truck just because of a human standing in the middle of no where.

Warehouses/Units (DEP loaders/Conveyor belts/Pallet Jacks maybe) -$1 ,000 – $5 , 000 (Depends on the size of the company)
Total Start-up Expenses –$22 , 000 – $50 , 000 (This is not including actual trucking costs – expect to put hundreds of thousands in that too!)

Multiple drivers per route will increase your monthly gross revenues as well as number of trucks maintained. Don’t discount good relations with your current customers. Businesses are wont to drift from one client’s territory to another because of overlap but this needs careful attention. What makes customers loyal is repeat business rathe

How to get database of every trucking company?

Keep your eyes open for any company that does trucking or cargo road-hauling. I found a contact email (you can use gmail to alias) of one of the major trucking companies here . I’m currently updating lists from old editions and I doubt it will take much longer than 2-3 months.
