Starting your own trucking company is a significant endeavor, but the process can be challenging. Here’s what you need to know:

1. **Authority Application**: To begin, you’ll need to apply for your own Authority, a crucial step regulated by the FMCSA. However, activating your Authority requires active insurance, which typically involves an upfront payment of around $5,000, followed by monthly premiums of approximately $2,500.

2. **Activation Timeframe**: The Authority activation process usually takes between 3 weeks to a little over a month before it becomes active. Only once it’s active can you start booking loads.

3. **Insurance Payment**: Be mindful that your first month’s insurance payment will be due around the same time your Authority becomes active. Timely payment is critical because failure to pay can result in your Authority being deactivated, leaving you unable to book loads.

4. **Brokers’ Hesitancy**: Starting a new trucking company comes with a unique set of challenges. It’s crucial to understand that as a newcomer, you may encounter reluctance from many brokers due to your lack of experience. This situation can lead to the acceptance of undesirable loads from some of the industry’s less reputable brokers. Such as TQL or UBER. However, it’s essential to be aware that load payments may not be favorable, and load requirements might be misrepresented. Please note that we do not collaborate with TQL under any circumstances.
