Hello everyone ,

I've heard a lot of companies in the US use a remote dispatcher. Any idea on how could I do this ?

I am from Europe, I have 7 years trucking experience in all of Europe. I've done a little research and I don't think there is too much difference between the 2 markets. If I am wrong please correct me.

Any idea or feedback will be appreciated

Kind regards, Alex

Dispatcher:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Hi, Alex~~ and welcome to the forum !

I'm not sure we have the answers you are seeking here, as it's been quite some time since your post, with no replies. I apologize, but we are more geared up here to get new/potential drivers set up with training companies, to get them on the road and making money. As far as a 'remote' dispatcher , are you speaking of 'leasing on' to a company for freight; paying for access to load boards, or ... other ? ? ? Many 'company' drivers have 'remote' dispatchers at this moment in time, due to the COVID 19 virus; operating remotely from their own homes, but I don't think that's what you are seeking.

It appears that you are, in fact, an Owner/Operator (and we DO have a few here, as well...) and might be better served by the likes of OOIDA. You can access them and their information with a quick Google search.

To 'my' knowledge, the markets are similar between our countries, as you asked. I hope you find your answers; feel free to stop back by and share your results, if you so feel inclined!

Have a great day, sir/madam~!

Anne :)
