Mike's Trucking Service



Ownership & Structure

Mike’s Trucking has been in business for one year. We have maintained financial stability during the first year of operation due to the extensive industry experience of our management team.

The company’s management is minimal in order to reduce the overhead. Mike Smith, the company owner, and president makes all executive decisions. At the moment, he also generates most of the sales leads. Joan Rose works as an executive secretary who answers phone inquiries and maintains the customer database. A part-time sales representative will be hired to solicit new business once the company acquires new trucks. In year 2 the administrative staff is planned to increase in order to handle the higher sales volume. In the future, a sales manager will be hired to allow Mr. Smith more time to dedicate himself to company management.



Management Team

The management of Mike’s Trucking is highly experienced and qualified. Mike Smith, president and CEO, has been involved in the trucking industry for 15 years. He is well respected by the trucking professionals with whom he has worked. All administrative functions are performed by Joan Rose, who has worked with Mr. Smith for the last seven years. She possesses extraordinary customer service and database management skills.

The company’s management philosophy is based on responsibility and mutual respect. Mike’s Trucking maintains an environment that stimulates productivity and emphasizes respect for customers and fellow employees. The company structure is linear, which leads the staff responsibilities and decision-making power.

Our truckers on salary earn about $50K per year, which is close to the national average. Our two own-operators earn less because we are building a company.
