Tractor/trailer (18 wheeler)
The front wheels of a tractor are referred to as “the steering” When a tractor/trailer is completely loaded, the maximum amount of pounds allowed by law is 80,000 pounds. These pounds have to be split to several axels. The steering wheels ( first axel) are allowed to carry 12,000 pounds.
The two axels with 8 tires behind the cab are referred to as “the drives”. The drives are allowed to carry 34,000 pounds.
Chapter 2 – Your Home Office.
No matter where you live, house or apartment, you need to separate your
business from all other family activities around you. Creating a small office
in one of the rooms is always the best way to go. You need to be totally
concentrated on the job when you deal with your clients livelihood. They

accessible 24 hours a day. Please understand, you don’t have to work all
these hours. Most dispatching is done between 8 AM and 1 PM. However

the first two to three weeks you need to communicate with him more
often because you need to create a relationship, get to know him and get
him to feel comfortable with your services. The relationship should have a
pleasant understanding because the client is your income and you like to
keep them on board. Remember, your business depends on a recurrent
You need to know how many miles…………
P.S. You need these certificates and forms from your clients because the
brokerage company requests these documents before you can book a
load with them. Once you are set up with an account, you don’t need to
sent the documents again. It is a one-time effort on your part to set up
an account and become a customer with the brokerage company on
behalf of your client.
