This month we celebrated Freedom, but freedom is more than something that’s celebrated with fireworks and cookouts on the Fourth of July. Freedom can be interpreted in many possible ways. Trucking, more than any other profession exemplifies freedom.
Freedom to Define Your Business
If you are one nearly 400,000 owner-operators in the United States, then you’re aware of the challenges that can be faced as you attempt to establish yourself. But you also have a number of freedoms as well, including:
Freedom of the Open Road
Truckers have the freedom to travel various roads and highways and explore new and beautiful locations on a regular basis. It may not be akin to hitting the open road for a summer travel adventure where there are no real deadlines or set schedules. Still, many diehard truckers find personal enjoyment in being able to make a living while literally being constantly on the move.
Giving Freedom to Americans Everywhere
On a larger scale, commercial truckers are the backbone of American life and responsible for the freedoms we all enjoy in one way or another in this country. Truckers play a vital role in ensuring that our economy runs efficiently by successfully transporting goods from city to city and coast to coast. As we celebrate our collective freedoms we can all be grateful for the many freedoms truckers provide to others, including:
An argument can be made that freedom has been the driving force behind many great accomplishments on both a large scale and individually. What can be said with even more certainty is that it’s a value we can all embrace in some way every day and truly appreciate.
We celebrate this value at Pay4Freight by giving owner-operators and truckers the resources needed to enjoy the freedom to succeed in an industry experiencing steady growth. Take a moment to learn more about our programs and resources.
