“Thank you AAEA! Joining this organization was one of the best business decisions I could have made. Opening a business is not easy and having great resources is a critical key to surviving. The AAEA and its staff have been a wealth of knowledge and I am truly grateful. To top it off, I was approved in lightning speed for the PPP loan, something that will be a great help to my business during this pandemic. If you haven’t already, JOIN! The information is out there, the help is available and Leslie and his team will make it happen! Thanks so much AAEA! I appreciate all that you do!”

Starting a trucking company with intent to onboard drivers and owner operators
Long Business Description
The business will start with 2 drivers who will run off of government contracts or the load board. I want to onboard as many drivers as possible owner operators or drivers of my own. In the next 5 to 10 years we will switch slowly to the self driving trucks to expand the business.
