Independent truckers actually make up 90% of the trucking industry in the United States. Independent truckers are small business contractors who are responsible for the daily operation of a fleet of trucks, their contracts to haul up and down the road, and so much more.

Even less surprising were the products, mostly due to well-placed leaks that had been circulating for quite some time.
