I am looking into a truck related business and need to know how many independent truckers there are in the southeast. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Personally I think the simplest answer to that is going to be a lot but also not so many. What I simply mean is this as a driver you're gonna learn that your home base of operation might be in one particular place but that really doesn't have anything to do with where you haul or where you're at. I'm puzzled as the basis of your question is it because you want to know if you're going to have any competition what. Because as a general rule I can tell you I think everyone else will agree southeastern states Florida in particular and even somewhat of Georgia they get a lot of their stuff brought in by boat and so there's not a lot of stuff going into Florida and there's next to nothing coming out besides maybe fruits down in the very southern part of Florida in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda there's a company called Cheney brothers which is one of the biggest southeasterly companies but even they pretty much stay in Florida. Maybe if you expand it on your question and we're little bit more specific you might get more of an answer but with what you've given us that's the best I can do. You got to go where the loads are
