The US Department of Commerce reported that total truck transportation revenue reached $266 billion in 2004 and estimates of revenue increases continue to bode well with some forecasts exceeding $308 billion in 2006 and steady growth into the future. This growth has substantially increased the demand for drivers, and should be reflected in an increased demand for vehicles and the specialized equipment necessary to meet the demand for moving cargo and commodities safely and efficiently over the roads of our nation. Jim McCormack, owner of TruckerToTrucker.com, carefully monitors the indicators and trends in the trucking industry to insure that his small business is positioned to respond quickly to immediate demands and changing requirements.

The American Trucking Research Institute has reported that trucks carry almost 68 percent of all domestic tonnage and the total tonnage requirement is expected to rise steadily. All the economic indicators seem to indicate that the trucking industry will continue to experience sustained growth over the next decade. That growth will translate directly into increased demand for truck drivers, vehicles and specialized equipment as the demand to move more and more cargo and commodities throughout the nation grows. How that increased economic activity will translate into opportunities for those that serve the needs of the trucking community is the question for many small businesses that provide essential support to the industry.

Many small businesses attempt to analyze the big picture so that they can use their inherent flexibility to respond to industry demands. As one of many small business owners, Jim McCormack, owner of TruckerToTrucker.com, carefully monitors the indicators and trends in the trucking industry to insure that his small business is positioned to respond quickly to immediate demands and changing requirements. Past forecasts for opportunities in the trucking industry drove Jim to start his sales business and he has experienced phenomenal growth, not only because of industry demand, but because he is able to respond to the requirement of fleet owners as well as to the needs of the independent trucker. Over 26,800 ads have been placed on his site in the four years since inception and the speed with which equipment is bought and sold seems to support the analysis that has been released by industry researchers and experts.

McCormack, by focusing attention on customer needs, has now decided to expand by offering Motor Freight Trucking Products with an array of cargo control, trailer and cab accessories to meet the demands for safe and efficient movement of the increased tonnages that are being forecast.

So far the predictions of the experts for sustained growth in the trucking industry have served Jim McCormack and his staff well. It has been a win-win situation for buyers and sellers that have selected TruckerToTrucker.com as a partner in their business endeavors. Jim states that, "Our business has been built on honestly and responsively serving the needs of each individual that needs our services. We hope to continue that service by providing additional products that can be purchased by our customers."

Jim has based his business decisions on the forecasts of the experts and his knowledge and intuition about the needs of the members that make the trucking industry work. Time will tell if that confidence is well placed.
