Evaluating our truck enterprise

Jan 06, 2018 at 06:56 AM CST

With the year end just behind us, I thought it was time to take a closer look at the numbers behind our trucking business. Let’s cut to the chase:

Fuel/oil/grease 3.2 cents per bushel

Wages and associated taxes 5.9 cents per bushel

Plates/licenses 0.4 cents per bushel

Insurance 0.4 cents per bushel

Repairs 5.8 cents per bushel

Total 15.7 cents per bushel each way, (in and out)
