learn about before starting a trucking company.

Press Release Body = Everything we purchase, use, or consume was at one time
transported by truck. Even if a product traveled by train, plane, or ship, it was
still trucked. The trucking industry is one of the largest in the world. But many
people are inclined to stereotype truck drivers as "all muscle and no brains." Yet
the trucking industry has some of the most strict and diverse rules and regulations.

To be successful in the trucking business takes skill, ingenuity, energy, hard work,
and most of all intelligence to keep updated with all the federal and state rules,
regulations and laws. Just driving down the road, though vital, is just a part of
the industry. Successful truck drivers have done their homework and learned all the
ins and outs of the trucking industry.
When starting a trucking company, it is important to know these rules, regulations
and laws before starting. Failure to do so can result in spending thousands of
unnecessary dollars. Often drivers end up spending weeks and months fixing problems
and learning laws when they could be earning money on the road.

things can be found on the internet:
