We all think that starting your own commercial carrier business is easy and simple once all the paperwork is done. We shell out the cash to buy the equipment, do all the necessary paperwork, find our loads and start driving.
Then comes vehicle maintenance, each DOT inspection, and every other simple aspect of the transportation field. As a small business owner, you may feel that you will remember it all. Each time you fueled up, each time you did a brake check, each time you fix a flat tire or do an oil change.
AND THEN LIFE happens, all the small matters accumulate one by one and you can no longer remember what happened and when it happened and why it happened.
Here comes inspection season, tax season, normal why do we not have any money in the account season, and you wonder what occurred? And who to blame.
