Owner-Operators Can Get in on the Home Delivery Revolution

Online Shopping is Enticing with Free Shipping

One of the main reasons that so many people love to shop online is today's fast-paced lifestyle. Work and after-school activities do not leave time to shop, and what time is left for shopping is usually for groceries, dining out or takeout. What makes it even more enticing are the online shopping sites that offer FREE SHIPPING, as found on Money Crashers. Even though shipping is free to the consumer, it's not free to the company. These companies require trucks and truck drivers to transport their products to their customers.
