Thanks.

Hello Boris,

I am looking at starting my own dispatcher service from home. I have a owner/operator with his own authority MC# and US DOT#. I have a computer with internet, printer, fax and phone and when I ask others for help it's like I asked for their first born or being charged enough to get my first born.

I notice you are willing to help and I thought I would send an email requesting your expertise. Could I please get step by step instructions on how to start my own truck dispatcher company, also.

Thanks in advance,

Mary

You should not be offended when people ask to be paid for their expertise and business plan model. It is better to pay for professional advisement from a professional than to get free advice from someone sometimes. Just sayin.

I'm not offended with paying for accurate information. With all the scams, I don't like paying for junk. Trust me, I have.

It is beneficial to hire owner operator because they provide their own insurance. The company does not have to pay for it.

Yes you can be a dispatcher but you can not sign any contracts because you are not at concentual age yet. So you need somebody who is adult to help you out

I am not out to sound like I am talking down to anyone here, I am not. But for all of you who are posting about wanting to dispatch, for your spouse, uncle, and other family. This isn't really the place for help. As long as you are getting loads for a family member you don't need anything except an agreement with them that details what they want you to do. Let them hire you for a percentage or paycheck and work for them. In simple terms, it is dispatching, yes. But in reality, it is quite a bit different that running in or working in a Dispatch Business which I have done much of my life when not driving.

My dear friend convinced us to start a dispatching business - What a great idea!
She trained us and gave us all the information we needed. We are ready to get up at 5:00am and start working. Our problem is finding independent truckers that need our services. My friend is very successful at this- of course her husband owns a truck and she has made many contacts. She never mentioned how HARD it would be to get contacts! How do we advertise our business? Marketing is going to be hard-

me in Lawrenceville, Georgia said: 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.

Dispatch Business in Houston, Texas said: 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
