The Independent Carrier Group was formed to improve the quality of life of the members of our organization, as well as our industry, while still maintaining our freedom with integrity.  We understand the need for independent carriers to work with each other to make this happen.  For far too long, we have been working against each other instead of abiding by the honor code of yesteryear.  Our industry has become eroded to the point that many lack the self-respect and the skill to succeed in our business.  This group can help educate each other about various business expertise, economies of scale, and hopefully pass the honor code on to the next generation of independent carriers through the process.
