The story of Brandon Davis, who worked hard and ultimately achieved success, is an excellent example of how hard work can lead to fulfillment. Davis was born and raised in North Carolina, where he always felt a strong desire to make money. At 18, after graduating from high school, he obtained his Intrastate CDL to become a truck driver.
Davis says that his neighbor’s experience as an owner-operator of trucks spurred him to join the industry. He saw how well his neighbor’s business was doing and wanted to follow in his footsteps. He began his career as a truck driver at age eighteen, hauling shingles on a flatbed. Through his association with that business, he learned aspects of its operations.
Unfortunately, the company did not do well, and Davis had to quit his job after working for only 6-7 months. Because his CDL was intrastate and could drive only locally, he had to look for a job that would allow him to drive farther. He transitioned into fire service, driving trucks for the department’s fire trucks.
Davis worked as a fire engineer and also drove a truck for Amerigas, a company that hired him part-time to drive its trucks. After leaving the fire profession, Davis was offered a job in Amerigas in safety and consulting business. This consulting business allowed him to explore his own interests, which led to the founding of his own business.
Interaction with TN’H:
Davis’ work for Amerigas afforded him a number of opportunities and benefits, including the development of his own business. He began working with carriers on their consulting needs, and as a result, he developed many contacts. The growth of a company starts with the story. Davis told Truck N Hustle how he got into trucking and what it takes to scale the business higher than you ever thought possible.
