Transportation

The transportation industry is made up of some of the hardest working people in the country. To be successful, they also need to be smart about how they navigate the complexities inherent in the industry. This includes federal, multi-state, and local tax compliance, rolling stock accounting and planning, weight mileage tax, and new laws and regulations that affect the field. 

Trucking companies must also grapple with decisions all businesses do, including when and whether to sell or acquire another business, succession planning, and estate planning. 

With more than 30 years of experience working with transportation companies, Kernutt Stokes is well-equipped to provide the data and insight needed to help owners make good decisions in the trucking industry for their business now and into the future.

Kernutt Stokes is a proud member of the Oregon Trucking Association and the Washington Trucking Association, and we are an annual sponsor of the Oregon Trucking Association. 

If you’re looking for an accounting and consulting partner that will work as hard as you do to help keep your fleet moving forward, we’d love to hear from you.
