TORONTO, Ont. — and Michelin have teamed up to present a 10-part video series on Becoming a Successful Owner/Operator.

The series, featuring ATBS Canada CEO Ray Haight and based on the ATBS Business Manual for Owner/Operators, will walk prospective owner/operators through the process of becoming an O/O while helping existing owner/ops improve their profitability and success.

The first part ‘Is it the Right Choice?’ examines some of the common traits of successful owner/operators and explores whether becoming an owner/operator is a good decision for you. The entire series is sponsored by Michelin and available to view free of charge on A new segment will be aired every two weeks, covering key topics such as: Record-Keeping; Understanding and Maximizing Revenue; Controlling Costs; and Finding the Right Carrier.

Each video is approximately seven minutes long and features Truck News executive editor James Menzies as he asks key questions of Haight, a past owner/operator and fleet owner who has worked with hundreds of owner/operators over a career spanning more than 30 years.

The videos are available to view on the home page in the Learning Centre video box.
