I have over eight years, and 1,000,000 miles, in the trucking business. I have access to financing a semi tractor-trailer with $0 down, but don't have money for the I.C.C. Authority, plates permits, insurance, etc.
I have a broker with steady freight for me to haul and very good rates as well. Is there a way, or a place I can get a grant or other types of funding for this startup?
The SBA, and Venture Capital firms aren't any help because there is actually no collateral or a "rolling stock" as called isn't financable in their opinion.
Any ideas, or advice you could pass on would be very greatly appreciated.
