#103 Mike Stewart - How To Build A Million Dollar Fuel Transport Company | Reliant Tank Division
The 34 year old entrepreneur has built an impressive fleet of 9 Trucks and 15 trailers, specializing in hauling hazardous materials (HAZMAT) that consist of everything from Fuel to Wine and Orange Juice.
And it took him about 3 years.
The California native attributes his rapid growth in this niche to a few key things. One, he and his team’s attention to performance, Two, prioritizing his driver’s and having extremely low turnover. and Three, the fact that Hauling Hazardous materials is not over saturated like some of the other trucking niches. In fact, the demand is so high that Mike implores other to get in now.
The opportunities are great endless.
Mike started his driving career at 23 following in his fathers footsteps, who also is a tenured driver. He began working for CR England as a company driver, but quickly became a owner operator seeing the high earning potential. Things with CR England , would not last long. Although Mike built up to 2 trucks, he got frustrated with the industry and sold them both.
After some “time off” Mike decided to haul fuel because he knew it was the highest paying local CDL job in his area and he had previous HAZMAT experience. He took on the most difficult fuel hauling position and developed a passion for it. He would even grow to have supervisory role in his company, but his dreams for the company were bigger than their own.
“The company did not see their own potential!”
Mike wanted bigger!
Mike took what he learned and all his HAZMAT experience, purchased a truck and a old tanker trailer and started Reliant Tanker Division.
Fast forward Today, Mike has grown the company to not only hauling Fuel, but to specializing in all things HAZMAT with a mix of tankers, reefers, flatbeds and more. He has mange to carve out his own lane and has audacious plans for the future.

#100 Kim Wages - Your Favorite Fleet Owners, Secret Weapon |The Silent Partner
Kim Wages is the best-kept secret for trucking company owners and investors.
With thousands of trucking company authorities going active monthly, driver processes and procedures are often overlooked in haste. Kim spotted this problem and now with his signature “onboarding process” has helped over 180 trucking companies set a standard of excellence before their driver and truck tires touch the road.
Kim, the Queens, NY naitive, grew up in a rough evoirnement that he refused to become a product of. His father was imprisoned, when he was at a young age, causing Kim and his older brother to grow up fast enduring the streets while seeking a more productive path.
“Kim Kim” as he was know by in the neighborhood would grow and soon leave NY behind relocating to the Altanta where he got his start in the workforce after year's of trying to figure things out. Kim started his career working in a warehouse, growing into a leadership role at 20. He followed that by going to school to become a air plane mechanic but later realized that it wasn't for him.
Subsequently, Kim got his CDL embarking on the journey with a entrepreneurial mindset.
He would start off as a team driver and would later grow his own fleet of trucks through the Landstar system.
Later, utilizing his knowledge, Kim would become the go-to guy, implementing “driver onboarding” as a white-label service for new upstarts. This service includes Meeting your company driver on location and taking them through a meticulous “Onboard Process”.
Also, During the pandemic Kim and a partner also used their mechanical knowledge of trucks to do trucks sales, finding used trucks at auction, making them roadworthy, and re-selling them to customers looking to buy used at a substantially lower than market value cost, moving roughly 15 trucks p/month.
With all these accomplishments, Kim and his team are just getting started and the future is bright.
Special thanks to my brother Fatman Scoop for the love.

Through some ups and downs and and extremely interesting turn of events, Tank, would eventually partner with UPS .

At this moment a lightbulb went off for Tank “How about a Consortium concept?” Instead of taking the opportunity for himself Tank decided to reach out to his Network and offer the work to other minority carriers he knew. Not long afterwards he would pool together over 500 minority carrier units for UPS and his concept became a reality.

#60 "Su" Sanni "A Dollar Van N' A Dream" - The Business of Dollar Vans &Tech in NYC -Dollaride
Since the 80’s NYC and other metropolitan areas have been known for their infamous “Dollar Vans”.
These vans are small commuter vans that hold multiple passengers and can get you to your destination fast!
Before Ubers and Lyft, commuters saw Dollar Vans as the cheaper alternative to taxi’s.
Historically these vans would charge “only $1 dollar” for a ride along a normally pre determined route.
Now, “Su” and his team at Dollaride have directly partnered with Dollar Van operators to expand their territory, increase their profits and give passengers more affordable travel options in transportation deserts.
Dollaride has added tech to create a seamless payment process to the once cash only business and added some other cool features to enhance the user experience.
Check out “Su”s story as he takes us through his entrepreneurial journey, selling his first start up #wedidit and raising 60 million in venture capitol to starting his current company, Dollaride.
