open hot shot trucking company

Open hot shot trucking company is not as difficult as you may think.

Start a hot shot (also known as Hotshot) trucking company by first deciding if this is what you want to do for work.  Look around numerous freight matching websites to see how much money you get paid when you get loaded with lots of loads and freight for your hot shot truck. Online freight matching services make it much simpler for brokers and carriers to find loads and trucks. These services work in different ways, but the goal is always the same; to improve efficiency for both carriers and shippers by making the best use of available equipment.

Start freight matching by posting loads and trucks to freight matching boards, your postings are compared to load and truck availabilities in their system. If a match is found, one or both parties are notified so they can contact each other to make shipping arrangements. Sometimes notification takes place immediately on the website, other sites provide notification by e-mail, fax, or pager. Not all load boards perform freight matching, some just allow you to search for matches on your own. A true freight load matching service will provide some level of automated matching and notification based on what you have posted.
