From LTL to Expediting Ownership

Sometimes, the right opportunity is where you least expect it. Just ask Kayelric Wilson, who recently found HIS opportunity in Expediting after years of driving in LTL trucking.
“I’ve been in trucking one way or the other most of my life. And my dream has been to own my own truck. Recently I was talking to a recruiter, asking him what would be my best path to achieve this.

A Second Career & The Call of the Road

One of the most alluring characteristics about Expediting is the fact that it’s a career that practically anyone can get into at just about any point in one’s life. If you want to begin your career fresh out of school, it’s a great place to get started. If you’re leaving a previous line of work, but not ready for full retirement, Expediting can be a great second career.

Still the Best Business Move I Ever Made

What’s the best reason to add a new truck to your fleet? Do you need another unit to expand your business? Will another truck create an economy of scale, allowing greater profits? Or maybe It’s just “time” to add another truck. Every Expediter has his or her own reasons. But Steve Glisson’s reason for adding a new truck to his fleet is for backup.

The Confidence to Upgrade

In January of 2014, Jimmy Moore and his wife Bobbi purchased a used Kenworth T660 from Expediter Services fleet. Their new purchase was in addition to a truck they already owned — starting them on the path as Fleet Owners. The following June, they purchased another T660 (also from Expediter Truck Sales), bringing the number of trucks in their fleet to three. We reported their success last October in Spotlight News.

Perpetuating Opportunity

Husband and wife team Padriaca and Cindy Chau Prude are no strangers to the pages of Spotlight news. The last time we visited with this driving duo was in August of 2013. They were just starting their careers as expediters and deciding that the best path for them was to begin as contractors in order to learn the expediting business. “Cindy and I drove as contractors for about seven months, knowing that we wanted to be independent, have our own business and own our own truck,” said Padriaca.
