From medical equipment to transplant organs, certified legal documents to holiday packages, the U.S economy thrives on the backs of its professional truck drivers. The task of starting a new trucking company from scratch can be daunting. Yet, as business owners enter retirement age, more and more successful trucking companies are put up for sale.
The U.S. trucking industry employs over 9 million Americans between private dispatching services, training centers, small trucking companies, and full-scale trucking businesses. Of the 360,000 trucking businesses in America, 96% have fewer than 28 trucks in their fleet, while 86% of the companies have fewer than 6 trucks business-wide. Many business owners are truck drivers who got started by finding a profitable trucking business for sale. Others chose large fleet or franchise options such as Yellow Freight Systems, Schneider, and Roadway Express.
The profit range for a trucking company can be anywhere from $50,000 to millions annually depending on whether you’re buying a single-vehicle business or a major-fleet trucking company. Regardless the size, the need for transport professionals is constant. Once you have your CDL license, the necessary insurance, and the equipment required, you'll be part of an industry that is responsible for the direct transport and delivery of almost $700 billion worth of goods nationwide on an annual basis. Let BizQuest help you find a great trucking company for sale today!
