OOIDA's next business webinar: It's not just dollars and cents

By Land Line staff | Friday, March 29, 2013

When you’re looking for the right carrier to lease on with, there are so many more factors in the decision-making process than just dollars and cents.

Some of the things you should consider are detention time, home time, how many miles you’ll get, and whether you’ll be paid by the miles or by a percentage of the load.

OOIDA’s next webinar in the Business Education Series will help you cut through the confusion and make a determination about which carrier or company is your best bet for success.

Catch the live broadcast on Thursday, April 4, or view it in the archive afterward at your convenience. There will be time after the live broadcast for questions and answers.

Few business-training seminars offer OOIDA’s experience and knowledge of trucking-related topics, especially those relevant to owner-operators. The 2013 series is no exception.

This series of webinars gives truckers a one-two punch with some programs designed to help drivers understand rules, regulations and industry requirements, while other courses teach participants about the business side of trucking.

Webinars cover topics such as transitioning from company driver to owner-operator, the authority process, using load boards and more.

OOIDA designed the program with convenience and truckers’ schedules in mind. 

“Webinars are presented by industry professionals in a user-friendly format delivered directly to the participant’s computer,” OOIDA Webinar Host Tom Gann said.

Programs can be viewed during the original airing, and participants can revisit the material later at their convenience. Or they can sign up to view any program in the easy-to-access archive files, which are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

There are two programs a month, each lasting about an hour. All programs are designed to help drivers at all levels in their career. Truckers may purchase the entire course, or choose individual programs, or pick several webinars with smaller, affordable package deals.
