Trucking Business Plan FAQs

A business plan provides a snapshot of your trucking business as it stands today, and lays out your growth plan for the next five years. It explains your business goals and your strategy for reaching them. It also includes market research to support your plans.

If you’re looking to start a trucking business or grow your existing trucking business you need a business plan. A business plan will help you raise funding, if needed, and plan out the growth of your trucking business in order to improve your chances of success. Your trucking business plan is a living document that should be updated annually as your company grows and changes.

With regards to funding, the main sources of funding for a trucking business are bank loans and angel investors. With regards to bank loans, banks will want to review your business plan and gain confidence that you will be able to repay your loan and interest. To acquire this confidence, the loan officer will not only want to confirm that your financials are reasonable. But they will want to see a professional plan. Such a plan will give them the confidence that you can successfully and professionally operate a business.

The second most common form of funding for a trucking business is angel investors. Angel investors are wealthy individuals who will write you a check. They will either take equity in return for their funding, or, like a bank, they will give you a loan. Venture capitalists will not fund a trucking business.
