    The trucking industry covers a broad range services for many different businesses. A trucking company could specialize in primarily hauling heavy equipment. Some freight companies focus on other forms of cargo or merchandise, such as food. Business is a never ending for truckers, and some drive 24 hours a day to haul freight and equipment in bulk. Time is money for all business, and a freight company works under the same principle. They hire people to work in the warehouse and load up trailers and flatbeds. From that point it is the driver’s duty to transport the merchandise as quickly as possible to the destination. The dispatch keeps in contact with the driver to make sure the cargo is going to make it to its destination in time. Any problems with the truck or the motor get relayed back to dispatch so an adequate plan can be made to fulfill the order. Some companies offer express courier services. The size and weight of the cargo has to meet the standards of the federal law to protect the roads and highways. Being a carrier of more than the federal regulated weight can cause a fine for the trucking company and possibly the driver. Trucking companies will sometimes push the limit and try to make the freight as heavy as possible. A trucking brokerage company does not own the trucks or the flatbeds that are being used to transport goods. The broker’s job is to do the rest of the work scheduling orders and making sure they are fulfilled. This includes the hiring of staff to implement the orders that are arranged and earning a commission. The owner of the vehicles doesn’t always have the expertise to manage the logistics of a successful operation.
