Effective immediately we will no longer require an OTR Independent Contract to have a Power of Attorney, where the driver does not own the truck. The owner of the truck will have to understand that we will only deal with the driver when it comes to operational issues. The driver of the truck will still be the name listed on the lease agreement. The 1099 will go to the driver, but the revenue can go into any account that is set up.
