Saw this article on owner operators

My dad works at a International deal and said there has been 4 companies showing up to repo trucks in the last 2 weeks.

Also, I passed the Ritchie Brothers auction in Morris IL. The lot is full of semi trucks and trailers, 2 years ago they had none on the lot.

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.

RB in Springfield, Ohio is also pack full of tractors and trailers. In addition the International Used Truck facility east of Columbus was full of identical looking white sleepers along with a bunch of other trucks.

I just read the article. It is spot on. Things are really rough and are expected to be for the remainder of this year at a minimum.

I’ve been doing alot of different things and with my equipment being largely paid for it has been hard. Thank god I payed attention to all the little things while things were going well.

Rates keep going down across the board. I am very well established with a few large brokers, as well as enlarging my own customer base.

I’m prepared to wait it out, but it is getting harder each month.

I’m enjoying my july 4th putting a new radiator in my truck..
