Profit Planning: Every successful business starts with a plan. When you start with 18 Wheeler, one of the first things you’ll do with your business consultant is to construct a profit plan.

This helps give you a complete picture of how you’re doing. You will know exactly how many miles you need to run to break even. Profit plans are not something that you can set up and forget about. They need to be reviewed frequently due to the number of variables that are part of the business. Are you making enough money to pay your quarterly estimated taxes? Is there going to be enough money in your maintenance account in the event that your truck needs to be repaired? These can be solved with an up-to-date profit plan in place.
Benchmarking: having a profit and loss statement delivered to you each month is beneficial for making decisions. What makes it truly special is that we benchmark you against other drivers. This allows you to get a first-hand look at the things that you are doing well, and the things that you can work on going forward.
