When looking to venture into the Savannah, GA trucking business, you should keep in mind that the success and profitability of your business – as an owner operator or fleet manager – depends on efficient operations.

Our lease arrangements take into consideration the importance of cash flow in the business, so we are flexible with our payments. We want you to succeed, scale your business, and grow with us.

Analysis of the US Trucking Industry

Demand in the trucking sector is driven by manufacturing output and consumer spending. Large companies have the advantage in fleet size, bulk fuel purchasing, account relationships, and ability to attract and retain reliable drivers. This does not necessarily mean that small operations cannot compete effectively, especially if their focus is on providing quick turnaround, transporting unusually sized goods, and serving a local market.

Here are some interesting statistics about the US trucking industry:

  • There are about 65,000 for-hire carriers and 250,000 independent owner-operators in the US;
  • Total industry revenue is about $130 billion;
  • The industry is fragmented, with the 50 largest companies controlling less than 40 percent of the market share.

These statistics include carriers that use commercial motor vehicles, but don’t include couriers and private carriers such as companies that haul their own raw materials and products.
