Your Viewpoint column, “Fuel for Thought” in the September/ October issue was an excellent one. It was thought provoking and clear in its recommendations.

I have been an owner/operator and have over the years been very involved with trucking in loss prevention, insurance, safety and compliance etc. Now if they (the owner/operators) would just stop identifying themselves as independents.

All the best.

Owner/operators need to re-examine their situation

I have just read your Viewpoint column “Fuel for Thought” in the September/October issue of Motortruck magazine and thought you had some very good points. Having been an owner/operator for several years I understand the issues and have sympathy for what is happening. However, as you wrote, “it is time that owner/operators saw trucking as a business not as a culture.”

Everyone certainly needs to take a look at the situation and to negotiate for his or her services.
