After working as a delivery agent for years, it was time for Forty to make the next move. And he had his brother, Wayne, by his side. Post their brainstorming session; they zeroed in on box trucking. From then on, it has been a roller-coaster ride for the duo.
They never wanted to get a yellow truck but ended up having one after an unexpected education.
Their stint with Amazon helped them get into the space of box trucking. But within the first six months, they had to pause. It’s better to hear it from them and uncover the reason. It was so bad that Forty had to get back to Door dash.
But they couldn’t stay away from the business for long and came back. This time they got into dispatching as well. The brothers’ insights into the dispatching operations made them better and more stable. And now they are looked up to for their achievements despite the ups and downs.
As they say, you must take your time and not rush. This podcast is information people need to know.
