    As the contraction of the freight continues the downward trend of rates has me rethinking my operation. I am considering a option of working with a Dispatch Service as I did when I started my company. But there has to be some issues I need to know. Nowadays so many scams around Double Brokering and outright stealing, what should I do minimize the chances of exposer ?

    No dispatch service has more interest in your success than you have in your success. My impression is a dispatch service is going to find you lots of cheap freight, which you can find without paying someone to find it for you. How is a dispatch service going to avoid finding you double-brokered freight? The only guarantee is you will be increasing your expense, paying the dispatch service. Why not look for direct customers instead? Get freight before it goes to the brokers?

    Around here I know cargo trailer loads pay well, but It would be a different type of trailer you'd need to haul them. More of an automobile style trailer.

    Dispatch services are scams. Thankfully the FMCSA has begun to crack down on them. Most of these operations are call centers in thrid world countries pretending to be based in the United States.
