Some people have a nose for finding good freight, are natural rate negotiators, and have time to put their talents to use. And then there’s everyone else. Many owner operators and small fleets are great at everything that goes into running a trucking business except for finding loads, in which case they better find someone who can do it for them.
There are several advantages to using a dispatching service compared to hiring someone to work for your company. Obviously, $30k-$50k for the average salary of a full time dispatcher is too much for an owner operator and even for some small fleets to take on. There’s also the risk of hiring a bad dispatcher and being stuck with them. With an independent dispatcher, the financial risk is reduced because you’ll typically only pay a flat rate or a percentage of each load. If the dispatchers don’t book anything, you don’t pay.
We’ve created a list of third-party dispatchers who specialize in finding loads. Nearly everyone on the list handles the most common types of freight – dry van, reefer, and flatbed. If you’re doing anything specialized, like auto hauling, tankers, and bulk, it’s worth choosing a dispatcher with experience booking those specific types of loads.
