    hi i live in the rhode island area,i want to start my own box truck company. im currently working for a box truck company delivering mail, pharmacy, ect.so i know how to transport materials.all i really know is from a drivers point of view i dont know how things work from the inside but i have an idea.first i register a name then i get all my permits and tax and working papers. i then make a website for my business. i start to call other delivery company to compare rates and as a beginner i would probably work best if i subcontract from other truck or delivery company then rent my box trucks to start business .for now i would rent two trucks and hire a family member to run other truck to avoid workmans comp and other things but ofcourse i will have it properly done once i see things are working out..now is that enough information to make my business start.

  • Aswan Saimov said on February 2, 2013
    ASTANA, KAZAKHSTAN. Got a fleet of 10 brand new cargo bikes (5 on two wheels and 5 on three wheels platforms). Have no experience in courier business at all. Moreover, the bike season is limited over here lasting from April to October, also I've Never seen them in use in my region before. I Feel that I need to attract local logistics companies for their last mile delivery service. (It is over 700 000 people lives in my city. Apparently, I have two options: to sell them or to get subcontracted with existing company. Could you please advise how to present the profitability of these bikes' use for existing courier companies, (the calculation examples would be of much help)? so I can advertise my bikes in an effective way for both options mentioned above .

  • Nitish Bhardwaj said on June 15, 2013
    My dad owns a courier company by the name Legend Express Couriers in Chandigarh, India. But because of some issues, nothing went our way and as a result the company couldn't make it's way through the competition. He had established his company's offices in 4 other states and in all the major cities of other states, but everything got finished in a very short time. Now he is working on subcontract basis with Overnite Express Courier rather than working alone for his own company. The base-line is that I want to reestablish Legend Express Courier and take it to the heights that my father planned for it, I want to achieve his dream because he worked exceptionally very hard from day and night to achieve his dreams, but nothing went his way, or u can say, hard work didn't paid off this time... So if anybody is able to guide me through this, I would've very thankful... :)

  • office cleaning Perth said on July 4, 2013
    Traditionally, office cleaners have been part of an invisible workforce in the corporate environment clearing up the office out-of-hours, either late at night or early in the morning. With the growing popularity of daytime cleaning the visibility and perception of office cleaners has undergone a dramatic change in the workplace. This has required a change in mindset not only for the office cleaning team, but also for the office worker.

    I'm located in East Orange, New Jersey 07017. Started my courier business in 01/2011. I subcontracted with an established trucking company in the area. 1st year I grossed close to $50,000 as a man cargo van company. This second year has been really bad as freight is slow with the company I'm subcontracted to, in addition to the fact that I'm only receiving a small percentage of the cost of the load. I would to branch out on my on, get a grant or small business loan for working capital. How would I go about this. What loan sources are available to me. I just turned 62 yrs old. I was an over the road truck driver for over 20 yrs.
