What is Hot shot Trucking:
The freight carrier industry is an important part of consumer goods reaching retailer shelves. Independent drivers and
freight companies transport about 70 percent of all the goods that hit our shelves. Hot shot trucking allows you the freedom
to work for the freight carriers that you choose.
Hot shot truckers are freelance drivers for the freight industry. These drivers transport goods for any company or carrier
without signing an obligation agreement.
Hot shot truckers make their own schedule and drive routes that they choose. These drivers are allowed to pick up and
deliver their cargo, choose the carriers they want to work for and do not have to file or fill out any paperwork. The carrier
company does the paperwork for the driver.
Hot shot drivers usually can count on a 75/25 split with the carrier company. The freight company takes a 25 percent cut of
the total for each delivery as a fee for paperwork and setting up the order.
To become a hot shot driver, you must first visit the DMV and obtain an IRP License that allows you to drive an
overweight vehicle. You must also purchase insurance and find companies who are willing to let you work for them.
Know the laws in your state and the requirements of the cargo carrier. States have different requirements for driving, and
penalties for violations can be very expensive. Penalties can include being over weight limits and having improper
licenses, tags or paperwork.
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.
