What would a solution to your worst problem involving your small motor carrier be worth to you? How about a donation to a local charity, and some hours spent with the popular advisor-on-wheels, Nicky Hammerlane, he of the black Stetson and white International fame? Can't catch up with him? Here's the next best thing.

This book is compiled of real-life problems that Nicky's helped solve over many years of trucking – and frequent mentions of his favorite hobby, eating pie in a quiet back booth of your local truckstop. Nicky tried to retire years ago, by selling his small trucking outfit to his son and grandson, but the diesel in his veins wouldn't let him quit. Besides, as he regularly reminds himself and his family – he's the one who takes that last-minute load that nobody else wants.

Get a copy of this book and sit down with a cup of coffee and a piece of pie, as Nicky shows you how to fix most of the problems that keep small motor carrier owners up at night – or feeling like it'd be better to just park the trucks and hang up the keys. Keep in mind, America needs truckers and trucks, to keep on going every single day. Your motor carrier is a necessary part of the industry, and worth investing your time and money in it to make it a success. Don't hit the brakes – hit the books. You can find solutions, and keep your carrier productive and making money for years to come.
