Welcome to STTREAM the information and entertainment arm of https://www.trucktractortrailer.com/ We stand at one of the trucking industry’s most interesting crossroads since deregulation. We are seeing a permanent shift in the way Americans work, shop, and play supercharged by the Covid-19 pandemic. The e-commerce boom that we all expected to come in the 2020s is here now. The commodity market is hot and with infrastructure spending as well as residential shifts around the country we expect the materials market to get hot soon.

For many of us, that word alone is enough to generate unwelcome anxiety in the pits of our stomachs. It’s a topic that small business owners across the nation avoid and, for that reason, is so easy to put on the backburner – especially as a busy owner operator or small fleet owner. And when you actually need financing, all your worries come to fruition because you haven’t taken the necessary steps to ensure a smooth (and significantly cheaper) financing journey for yourself and your business.
It’s a word that is shrouded in mystery and brings up far more questions than answers for even some of the savviest: How do I qualify for financing? Who can tell me if I qualify for financing? How does personal credit affect my business interest rates? Am I stuck if I don’t qualify for my Bank / Credit Union’s finance program? What if I have no credit? Poor credit?

Everyone who is running a business or thinking about starting one has one thing in common: a need for money to invest in their business in order to be successful. There are several ways to acquire capital, from using one’s own savings to finding investors who want equity in return for their infusion of cash. However, there is one option for growing a business that makes many small business owners cringe but is often the best option available: getting a loan.
While many are psychologically averse to taking on debt as a means of growth, financing allows for you as a business owner to purchase the truck, tractor, or trailer you need without giving up equity in your business that could potentially be worth exponentially more in the future. Nearly every successful company in the world, from Apple to Costco, holds some debt from time to time, so it is not something to be feared. We at Innovative Lease Services, TruckTractorTrailer.com’s trusted finance partner, are here to explain the benefits of financing for your company and why you should consider doing so for your next equipment purchase.
The August 12, 1994, issue of The New York Times, appropriately titled “Internet is Open,” chronicled the sale between two friends of a music CD. Since that small and unwittingly paradigm shifting transaction, the e-commerce age has been gaining exponential inertia. As if it wasn't growing at a breakneck speed already, the Covid-19 global pandemic threw diesel on the e-commerce bonfire, accelerating the adoption of technology, tools, and all things e-commerce. It fueled a consumer adoption rate that took mere months instead of years.
Meanwhile, behind the scenes with Nostradamus-like foresight, a visionary group of entrepreneurs toiled away, developing a new best-in-class e-commerce marketplace for used trucks. They set aside dated ways and built a new platform from the ground up. The public release couldn't have been timed any better. They dubbed it TTTExchange.

My father, who is known as “Bear” and looks the part with a large build, full beard, powerful hands, and an unmistakable voice that you can easily follow as it booms through any crowd, came to me one summer and was asking why I didn’t have a job. He knew that I had been a hard worker since I was small, mowing lawns, and shoveling snow for the neighbors from the time I could push a mower. I had wanted to work but no one would hire me, and besides, it was the summertime just after school got out and none of my friends had a job either.
