    This would be an Industry Change Activity in the truck transportation sector. You will need to determine the employment (or payroll or cost) required to ship those 10 loads, multiply this by however many days of the year these shipments occur, and use this to set up the event.

    Jenny, We will pay a local operator to ship the goods. The truck drivers will not be on our payroll. Does that change your recomendation? Nishi

    No, in fact that is exactly how we want it - otherwise we would be double-counting if their payroll was already included in your operational budget analysis.

    Thank you Jenny, Just to clarrify, I am supposed to figure out the approximate wage for the third party drivers instead of the amount of money we will pay the trucking company. Is that correct? Thanks Nishi

    It should be the amount you pay the trucking company.

    Should the propietor income be set to 0 or let it autogenerate? Not sure who the trucking company will be but it could be an owner-operated company or a larger carier. I am going to guess that since this is a hazardous material that it will be a larger company. With that I am thinking I should set proprietor income to 0. Please advise.

    If you are not customizing the industry, just let it autogenerate.
