CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa —  TrueNorth Companies and American Truck Business Services (ATBS) have introduced “The 2017 Owner-Operator Checklist for Success” seminars with featured content from Scopelitis Transportation Consulting.

This seminar is designed for truck fleet owners and managers that are looking to optimize and profitably manage their owner-operator operation, according to Amara Andrews, business development coordinator.

“The presentations will be fact-based, educational and will conclude with a set of actionable takeaways to help attendees operate a best-in-class fleet of independent contractors,” Andrews said.

Six half-day seminars are currently planned with the first taking place in Dallas on March 8. Dates and locations are currently being finalized in Kansas City, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Atlanta and Chicago over the remainder of 2017.

Content topics include:

  • Independent contractor models, with a discussion of the most economically viable structures and compensation designs

  • The ‘Four Quadrants of Independent Contractor Risk Management’
  • Insurable and uninsurable risks
  • Independent contractor legal pitfalls, contracts and other dos and don’ts, and
  • The current legal landscape and trends for the independent contractor model.

The discussion will be led by Todd Amen, president and CEO of ATBS and Trent Tillman, executive vice president of transportation at TrueNorth Companies.
