me in Lawrenceville, Georgia

50 months ago

I already have a driver(my uncle) and for now this is enough for me. I have the web sites from which I will get the load information. So my questions are what else do I need to do or have in place? Any special licenses? as my uncle already hauls for somebody but told me he would drive for me once I get everything started. Any other details I would have to do to get this up and running? It will be just me and my uncle for starters.

if u are going to be a dispatcher, then nothing! your uncle will need to have his own authority or motor carrier license(mc#)! if he does not have a motor carrier license(mc#) you will have to get a motor carrier license and lease him onto you! the better way would be for your uncle to get a motor carrier license and you dispatch for him! you need no license for this because you are not a broker you will work for him or his company as a dispatcher!

I have considered starting the same sort of company. I have owned a few different businesses. I am familiar with the necessary paperwork to start the business. I would possibly consider doing this with you. What knowledge of the business would you be able to contribute?

Dave in Seattle, Washington said: Most of the truckers/carriers work with 30 days credit and also almost all of the brokers pays in 2 days with a 2% fee.

Correct. I'm with Freight Broker Company " Blackjack Express,Inc.,"blackjackexpress.net" and know that for sure.We offer the same to O/Ops. But you've mentioned working direct with shipper.

Dispatch Business in Houston, Texas

samm in Manteca, California said: do i need a license to start my own dispatch business or just a mc and a dot number i just want a short run in ca so do i need a mc for that and how much does a mc cost and im looking for a good broker to release me short haul loads in ca

Hello samm in Manteca,

I reside in the state of Tx. and in Tx. there are no special licenses required in the state of Tx. to start your own Dispatching Business, with that being said, all states have different requirements and you would want to check with your local governing licensing agencies and verify that there are no special licenses required for your specific state. If you are a truck driver and would like to find your own loads, you are able to utilize any available load boards to find freight and contact shippers on your behalf, but as a truck driver, it is required to have either your California Dot and US Dot to just run California only or your Mc and your US Dot if you plan on running all 48 states. In reference to looking for a good broker to tender loads to you, there a lot of brokers out there, but do understand, brokers are not dispatchers, there jobs are to move the loads on hand for as little money and as quick as possible, a broker may find you a load going out, but they do not necessarily focus on trying to find you a backhaul. That is where a good dispatcher will benefit you or you dispatching yourself is also an option, but realize this can be very time consuming for you as a driver, when you could have someone doing that for you, while you drive and make the money. I hope this information was helpful and feel free to contact me should you have any additional questions. Thank you
