    Trucking business costs
    I would like to know the total cost per mile it takes to operate a tractor trailer, that would include all applicable insurances, driver wages, truck payment, taxes, fuel taxes, fuel,etc, this is based on paying $100000.00 for the power unit and $38000.00 for the trailer. This is of course a national average that I expect to get an answer for. Thanks Big rig.
