Hello Fellow Truckers
I am just out of college and I really want to help my father establish his trucking Business in an up beat scale.He has worked in this business for over 20 straight years and I see that age is catching up on him always fighting to get freights and some of his drivers lying about deliveries and inventory. I know there could be some sort of technology that could make you organize your deliveries,pick ups and track your sales. Also is there a website that I can visit or sign up so i could bid on frieghts and get contracts..I think he is tied of brokers also cheating,paying him less and sometimes not paying him at all. I am a very organized person and I would like to put this business in a very productive stage.I think thats the least I could be doing for him to earn a descent living, I want to refine to new ways of making this business work. I know I can't drive any of his trucks but i know i can handle the administrative part of things, dispatching,sales and all the necessary procedures. I am willing to learn and share ideas and as well make partnership with any successful Logistics or trucker company out here.ALso I would like to get more tips on how to secure contracts with companies and any procedures to follow,I wouldn't mind getting an informal training from an experienced broker around VA,MD,PA WV,DE area.
Please feel free to throw up any questions,additions and suggestion on how to make my fathers company turn into a profitable one. I will appreciate any resources in the trucking ,Logistics and the transportation Industry PLEASE HELP !! Thank you below is my contact info
