Challenges and Rewards of Being an Owner-Operator

Challenges rewards

Trucking isn’t for everyone. There are so many things truckers need to be mindful of, including always having the safety of other vehicles and passengers, as well as themselves, in mind. Nevertheless, trucking is full of beauty. Being in the trucking industry allows you more flexibility than any office job ever will. You can plan the week based on the loads you accept. After knowing your work schedule, you can plan any outside activities around that. There is no 9-5 you have to follow strictly. Your office is driving past some breathtaking landscapes. It is an opportunity to earn and also a great option to be your own boss.

We have spoken with a couple of drivers who have been with Super Ego for a long time about the challenges and rewards they faced in this industry:

As for rewards, he says that his favorite thing is having the freedom to work when he wants but also to be home when needed, as opposed to working for a company and having strict working hours. Another thing he pointed out is the benefit of knowing your truck and equipment, knowing exactly how to maintain them and how they work, and knowing which shops can get any issues fixed the way he wants to.

He also said it’s very important to take care of your customers and to always follow the good old saying: “The customer is always right!”.

If you’re thinking about switching to trucking, we hope these insights helped explain the positives of this industry as well as prepare you for any hardships that may come along the way. All of our drivers agree that trucking is a very specific industry and that it can’t be the perfect fit for everyone, but it can also be very rewarding if you find it’s the right call for you!
