Ask The Trucker

Raising the Standards of the Trucking Industry


Truth About Trucking: Watch Out for Copy Cats


There is only ONE  The book was originally written by me, Aubrey “Allen” Smith in 2000, and launched across the world wide web in 2005 with its revised, updated version, “The Truth About Trucking” is much needed knowledge for student drivers, new, inexperienced drivers and even some of the more hard core drivers. Having grown weary of witnessing countless drivers struggling to make trucking work, I set out to help those who wanted it.

Having spent the last three years working hard to spread the word out about the trucking industry scams, my wife Donna and I tirelessly work to learn the ways of the internet, website building, SEO procedures and spend hundreds of hours of our own time answering emails, providing research for those who need the help, and now have even launched the Truth About Trucking “LIVE” talk radio show to give drivers and all interested in the trucking industry as a career, to have their voices heard across the entire world.

My main goal from the very beginning was to get the information out to anyone who wanted it. Still driving and working 60-70 hour work weeks, I spend my days off making the website better by adding FREE bonus reports, writing articles and providing a FREE newsletter to all who want it. Recognized as a leading expert in Motor Carrier Transportation, the Truth About Trucking is fighting for our nation’s drivers and desires to raise the standards of the trucking industry.

Our information is available for anybody who would like to have it . . . but through my articles, blog posts, bonus reports and now, the talk radio show . . . I send a clear message for students and new inexperienced drivers that “this is what you need to know” before you jump into a life of over the road trucking. I am also sending a clear message to the trucking companies and truck driving schools that together, we can change an industry filled with scams and lies. Trucking can work as a career, but without learning first hand from an unbiased, thirty year veteran and expert in the field, you will spend years of hardship and struggles like so many other veteran drivers have done, and in some cases are still doing.

Naturally, when someone comes along with an important message where there exists nothing like it before, the copy cats will follow. You will find a few more trucking sites floating around the internet, but what I have found is that they are limited  with their own original ideas and assistance. It appears that they watch and observe what we do next, and then just change the words around a little bit in order to make it their own.

 “The Truth About Trucking” is about getting the truth out in regards to the trucking industry. In doing so we will raise the standards of the trucking industry. I could secure all of my free articles and reports where they could not be reproduced, but that would only be defeating the original purpose: to get the message out to everyone I possible can.

So , let the others re-create what I do,  rewrite my articles, posts, comments and reports and  utilize them in a way that it appears that “they “are the originals; as long as it will get the message out to students and new drivers… which is the ultimate goal . . .

We do offer some of the information on our site, the Truth About Trucking for a minimal price, but in truth, running a top notch website and Blog, spending hundreds of hours answering emails, researching schools, assisting  those who ask for my help, hosting the Truth About Trucking “LIVE” radio show, recording and editing videos, packaging the audio  CD’s, calling people back to help them with their problems or questions  . . . all takes time and money.  It is your trust and support that helps keep this information alive, and allows us to reach those who need it most.

Constantly working on  and coming up with new ways to get the message out there for those who need it and want it, we have now launched the Truth About Trucking Affiliate Program. Are you a driver who would like to help those new to the industry? Are you associated with trucking and looking for information that is needed and wanted? Are you the kind of person who truly wants to provide something that will actually HELP people? Would you like to help me get this important and much needed information out to as many people who want and are in need of it?

Then, I urge you to join Donna and I along with in reaching as many students, inexperienced drivers and those just thinking about a career in trucking, by helping to spread the truth . . . and  together we can raise the standards of the trucking industry. 

Thank you

Aubrey “Allen” Smith
