Cargo Van Owner but not operator?


New Recruit
I've been running as an independent contractor Cargo Van O/O for some time but I was recently offered a daytime local position with another company. I'd like to keep running my van with the carrier I'm signed on with and put another driver in it. In other words, be a fleet owner with a fleet of one.
I've already got an interested qualifued driver. How do owners generally manage pay, fuel cost, maintenance, etc..? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
