I'd appreciate some feedback on what the requirements are for becoming an independent dispatcher. Aside from the obvious things, such as a land line with unlimited long distance, a fax machine/scanner, high speed internet, etc., would I need to obtain any legal documentation?
Are there any websites out there that offer in depth information on how to get started?
I have been a dispatcher for over 8 years with a broker and am looking to branch out on my own. 99% of what I do can be done from home. I also want to get away from the mentality that the drivers work for the broker. I don't agree with that. In my opinion it should be a partnership.
So, any words of advice on how to get myself started with this career goal?
Thank you very much!
