Truck Dispatch is a great job and full of all challenges. I have worked in the industry for more than 8 Years. I started my journey when I quit my old job as a Freight Broker. All my experience is centered around making sales getting with Shippers, and working with all king carriers Dry Van, Flatbed, Reefers, and Sled Deck logistics has been part of my life because I learned how to deal with all kinds of mental stress and the most important deal with People. Communication, integrity, and responsibility are key to success in this industry. Truck Dispatching is a big puzzle that needs to be put together, and my puzzle is done. I put it together. I work with both Shippers and Brokers who pay the highest rate. I am working with Carriers who have great new trucks and equipment and the most important thing, great drivers. As a truck dispatcher, it is my duty to work together with Shippers, Brokers, and carriers at the end of the day to get the job done.
This job has been very tough but not impossible. Being consistent is important. I am out of my bed around 4:30 AM. Although it is hard sometimes to be up early, I think of all the drivers and all the people I have to answer and all the bills I have to pay. Life is not easy, but someone has to do it. Being a truck dispatcher is not easy to buy. I love what I do, and I do it with a smile. All the rate and freight are different every day and lot's of challenges but there is no problem without a solution.
