FreightWaves and other media outlets are speculating that there's a "trucking bloodbath" on the way due to the sharp decline in dry van spot rates and rise in fuel prices.

In this episode, we discuss how Tyler started as an owner operator shipping dry van freight in February and how he's navigating the current trucking market.

We also discuss moving from being a police officer to starting a career in trucking, working with brokers and running off the loadboards, his tech stack, building a family business and much more!
