As one of the premier owner-operator trucking companies in America, we at Paramount Freight were not surprised that our most popular blog article this year explained how truck drivers can take charge of their careers and become owner operators. It’s what we do. It’s who we are.
We’re happy to use our blog to help inform and educate our clients and others about owner-operators and other trends in the trucking industry. Read on to learn more about our most popular blog topics of the year.
Becoming an Owner Operator
In our blog article How to Become an Owner Operator Part I, we tell truck drivers how to get started as owner operators. One of the first things you want to do is to track your fixed and variable costs. By breaking these down into daily or weekly amounts, you can keep track of how much you need to break even. This topic was so important that we broke it up into five parts, including how to lease a truck, job boards and how to join a fleet. Click the link to get started.

Orientation Helpful to New Drivers
