The trucking industry offers endless opportunities, one of which is becoming an owner-operator. An owner-operator is an independent driver who runs their own transportation business. This allows the driver the freedom to make more money, control their day-to-day responsibilities, and scale their business the way they want to. Becoming an owner comes with a lot of responsibility, sacrifice, and dedication. All of which can become an extremely rewarding career path.
