    We've been offered a chance to take care of all the deliveries for a local landscape supplier, and I wondered if anyone has much experience regarding billing, payment, and any other details that might be good to know. Thanks.

    Just keep in mind they want to hire somebody because its cheaper than having their own truck. I don't know what you are delivering or what size of truck you are using. It could be by the hour or by the delivery most dump trucks and me I go by the hour with a minimum 1 hour and stand by time.

    How many kilometers do you have to go and what is the traffic like are you stuck in bumper to bumper rush hour traffic ?

    Running a tandem axle dump is borderline profit now with the cost of fuel and expenses.
