Here are a few of the many comments we have recieved from our customers
Received your book "Cost per Mile" and this is a great book for a person being an owner operator. Also, for a person like myself who is going to be an owner operator. One problem, you probably have already heard this;
On page 14 your calculations are wrong. 205,000 - 110,000 leaves you 95,000. Thus, your cost per mile for the grease is .000147. Just thought you might like to know.

I HAVE ORDERED 2 OF YOUR BOOKS AND LOOK FORWARD TO THEIR ASSISTANCE. WE ARE CONSULTANTS WORKING IN THE WASTE MANAGEMENT INDUSTRY AND IN SETTING OF RATES FOR SERVICES FREQUENTLY USE THE "OPERATING RATIO" TO CALCUALTE REVENUE REQUIREMENTS AND PROFIT. I AM LOOKING FOR HISTORICAL DATA ON THE ORIGIN OF THE OPERATING RATIO TERM/CALCULATION AND THOUGHT MAYBE YOU COULD HELP. THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE.

I am an anaylst in the public sector. I found your page while searching for information on the use of the operating ratio in waste industry regulation and am ordering "Cost per Mile" to help me understanding the hauling industry. I noted that Mr. Murphy had contacted you for similar information in June, 2001 and was wondering if you could help me out. My query is essentially the same as his- could you help me find information on the origin of the operating ratio term/calculation? Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Scott, just got the book, read it over and found it very informative. While Everyone says great book to you, it really is. The thing that I like about it is that it fits in the shirt pocket so its always handy. plus, its easy enough to make copies of the pages so that you can use em in the tractor, the office etc etc. I am a happy camper scott. Thanks again and take care.
Enjoyed the book!! Insightful and helpful just what I needed thanks. Keep me inform on when profit per mile is available. Regards. Will
Injured Trucker & His Family needs Your Help & Please Spread the word Saving Mouse's House not a Joke There is now a web site thank you Linda and Steve http://bzyweb.com/mousehouse.htm You All Do Not know me but I know Mouse0921 (Peggy); and I know you all do too I accessed her email's to see if you all would and could help her and her family. Peggy's Husband Dean was in a very serious Trucking accident on April 16, 2004. He has spent 5 weeks in the Hospital with Peggy at his side. Dean Broke every rib, punctured both lungs, broke his neck and back, he spent two weeks in ICU and 11 days on a vent. Dean may never be able to work again. Peggy is looking for work but it has to be something that will allow her to work around Dean's rehab and Dr's appt;s. They have rebuilt their home after they lost everything in a house fire; and Dean finally got back to work and now this. They have no workman's comp Dean was an independent. It was a one vehicle accident as his brakes failed and the truck flipped over on the runaway ramp. Peggy would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it she has taken in homeless people to help them and is always giving to others in there time of need. Now it's her turn and she will not ask for help it is just the way she is. Anyway this is my plan: If we can get people to send just one dollar to their mortgage company maybe we can help them keep the roof over their heads. My goal is to get this to at least 200,000 people. Anyone that can afford just one Dollar (more would be great) Please send to: Ameriquest Mortgage Company Account Number 0055750053 PO Box 51382 Dean Gilbert Los Angeles, Ca. 90051-5682 Dean's Accident is all verifiable thru Greg Myers at Klew TV 2626 17th Street Lewiston, ID 83501 (208) 746-2636 in Idaho where the accident happened and also in Phoenix, Arizona; Brooks or Heather at KTVK TV 602-207-3210 A couple of Pics are attached of dean and his truck well whats left of it.

Just to say thanks, I own 15 trucks with their trailer, you save me thousands with your book. Congratulations, hopefully you will print new ones!!! Sincerely Jose
Scott, Thanks for the prompt delivery. Your, Cost Per Mile publication, is condensed, and to the point with no BS. If you have no objection I'd like to make mention of this book on the ExpediterOnLine web site. How soon can we expect, Profits Per Mile. Any dealer who gave this book, FREE, to potential truck buyers would certainly be sending the message that they care about the buyer and they're future business success. Enough said!!! Thanks Again, Jim
