5 Steps to Start a Successful Trucking Business

Starting your own business is not as easy as investing money and watch it as it grows. In a business, there are still requirements that needs to be attended and if completed there is still no assurance that you’ll succeed. But with the proper training of skills and leadership qualities, plus perseverance and faith, opportunities would be never ending. And if ever, you’d be successful just repeat the formula that you’ve used and expect your money growing.
So, if you already know what you’re going into and have decided to start a business, maybe you could now start to choose a business that suits you. For me, what I think best suits me is a trucking business. For almost 30 years, father has been a truck driver which helped us to finish college. Now, I want to return him the favor and ask his guidance on starting a successful trucking business in the Philippines.
With 30 years of experience, here are the things that he observed in the business:

Get the right equipment.
A truck is the heart and soul of your company. Purchasing trucks might be the most expensive decision you’ll ever have to face but acquiring the right trucks that suits your business would be the key to succeeding this business.  
Buying the equipment is simply finding a financing company, paying a down payment and pay the rest from the loan. In buying the equipment, consider fuel efficiency, its size, and its daily maintenance.

Get the best customers.
There are limitless opportunities for trucking business because it is vital for business in specially for big online businesses. To get, customers participate on business bazaars, get a website and get it optimized or do the hardcore business approach, call businesses and ask if they need your services.

Know your expenses.
Before starting the business you should know the prices of the following: maintenance, truck repairs, fuel cost and labor.

Run the back office efficiently.
Develop the best process that would run smoothly on your back office. Ensure that the processes are well-thought and is efficient.

Avoid cash flow problems.
In a business, it is just normal to experience cash flow problems once in a while but when this time comes, be sure that you are ready for it.
Regular expenses like: fuel and repairs will eat through your revenues specially if your fleet is working double time and is growing in numbers. That’s why saving your earnings should be prioritized and should be only used for business operation purposes.

Graduation more fun with your Smart Load

Graduates roars as they say their goodbyes

On the months of March and April schools mostly held their graduation days. It is the time when schools call it quits with their former students. Students bid their adieu to their soon-to-be former classmates. But on the day of the event, is your smart load ready for your goodbyes?

Goals before graduation

Before thinking of your future plans, having plans with your friends before graduation is also a must-do plan. Communication is the key for a well-organized plan. Having your smart load balance always in check is a sure way to have schedules on point.

Try these, it is worth it:
  • Do be there on the actual event. Not everybody got time to wait for you.
  • Wear a Costume to Class (on a day other than Halloween)
  • Do Karaoke
  • Write an Article for the Campus Paper
  • Recite a Poem at an Open Mic
  • Correct your Professor
  • Do something you’ll likely get Rejected from
  • Get a Grade Change
  • Take a Quarter, Semester, or Year off
  • And so much more.

Doing these is more fun with an activated smart load promo sharing your everyday happenings would alert your other friends who have other things to do better than to go with the gang. With the availed promo you could freely upload photos on Instagram. Tweet every experience you had with your peers. Spontaneously call your friends and have them over for a sleep over. Even message them just to say you remember them. Post photos of your adventures let others see what they are missing and invite them as well, the more the merrier, right? Doing fun things should not be limited with what you have but creatively working on it, I guess, sky is the limit.

Hoping for more adventures for you and your friends. Just do remember to check for your smart load balance. You’ll never know maybe something good is about to happen.
