Efficiency Breeds Profitability
I have been a truck driver or as I prefer a Consumer Commodities Relocation Engineer. Since late in 1993. I travel the entire country and some times Canada. I find it a good way to make money and I enjoy seeing this great country of ours. So I am starting my own company I will have a proactive dispatch. I have only worked for one company like that. They kept me moving but needed much more training in what a driver can and can't do in a day.
I am currently an irregular route driver. which is what I prefer. My company is currently leased to FTI. This is because I do not have my own truck yet. I could make far more money with my own truck. That is what this profile is about. I have some very good ideas on how to run a very efficient dispatch. I need the trucks to test my forward thinking ideas. I plan to start with 5 trucks and 1 dispatcher. Who I will train to be very efficient and think a head. Calling a driver and asking him if he can do a run. Actually requires the driver to stop and calculate the time it would take to do the run. Most simply say yes or no while driving. Which means they really don't know.
