Hot shot trucking is hauling expedited loads and hot shot freight is a choice job for many truckers. Loads may be somewhat hard to find, and the loads that do get booked usually require the truck driver to run hard to meet the schedule, but the reward is premium rates and higher per mile pay!!

Hot shot trucking involves cargo that is generally smaller and rushed, so many companies hire a contract driver to complete just one run. Starting such a business can be a complicated legal endeavor and may require a significant amount of startup money. Seek the advice of a financial planner and an attorney knowledgeable in interstate commerce and motor carrier regulations before beginning.

Hot shot truckers are not always required to have their own truck. Some trucking carriers will provide a truck for you to deliver your cargo. Most of the vehicles are diesel 1-ton trucks or tractor trailers.
