I am completely new to the trucking business but the testimonies of family and friends within the trucking industry stoked my interest to conduct further research. After much research and consultation with others, I made the decision to enter into the business with the objective of becoming a fleet owner.
As I started putting together the required structure to get the business going, I always used to wonder whether there was a Trucking 101 class that I could take so that I can learn the fundamentals of the business and get a step by step detailed guide of how to go about setting a trucking business. After a Google search, I bumped into Trucking Success. I checked out the info on their website and purchased their Dispatching Manual. The moment I started reading that manual and going through the table of contents, I knew I had found a gold mine. I quickly finished the manual and reached out fo the company to find out more about their consulting service. The rest is what I would like to call my “Trucking History”!
Working with JW Lessing has been nothing short of a blessing. I often tease him by saying “Lessing is a blessing”. On a more serious note, JW is a guardian angel of trucking. He meticulously walked me through the entire process of setting up my business. We spent countless hours going through the details of acquiring the appropriate licenses and permits, shopping around for the right financing options, selecting the appropriate truck and trailer, developing compensation structure for drivers, writing ads for drivers, and plenty more.
Today (2 months after I started this process), I have completely setup my business and I’m looking to get started as soon as I hire a driver. In all this, I can’t imagine how I would’ve achieved this much or gotten this far without JW’s advice and guidance. I can’t speak for others, I can only tell you what my experience has been. However, if my experience is anything to go by, then I would recommend that you go with Trucking Success for your trucking consultation needs.
