Hi jonh, welcome to our forum! Congratulations on making the decision that you want to be your own boss and start your own business. My first suggestion would be to look and see if there are any online trucker communities in your area. By starting there, introducing yourself, and making contacts, you might be able to find the perfect fit in your area.
Additionally, you've inquired about Fed Ex routes, which has been a popular topic on this forum. There is a current discussion going on at: What is the expected return of owning Fed Ex route(s), which should provide you valuable insight and information. Feel free to jump in with questions of your own. You can also browse our forum for previous discussions by using the search function with the Key Words: Fed Ex.
We think you will find some very valuable insight and information on the pros and cons and all that is involved with a Fed Ex Route.
Best of luck to you in your new business venture!
Thank you Rebecca, I will look locally and check out the Fed Ex Routes
Have there been updates so far with the Fed Ex Routes??
Hello all! My name is Jon and I'm new to the site. I'm a Owner Operator/Independent Contractor (Non-CDL). I'm looking into acquiring truck routes/contracts etc (prefer routes) I have a 24ft 2008 Hino Box Truck 268A with a Lift Gate. I'm located in New Jersey. I'd like to make 1k-5k per week if not more. 3-5 days of work with the option of more work. The routes can be clothing, bread, chips, medical appliances you name it.
Please, anyone with knowledge of route work I ask that you help me by pointing me in the right area. Which companies provide the most sustainability, consistency and money? I have everything needed to make the deliveries, hand trucks, blankets, straps etc. Are there companies I SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM? Companies I should contact?
I'd like to be my own boss, make my own schedule etc so please anyone that has a strong knowledge of route work I could use your help. If FedEx is a option, please mention
Could you all please be detailed in your responses. Thank you all in advance for your help! I can really use it :-)
