I see you're not far from me. Where are you headed? I deliver in Edmond, OK this morning, then reload at the same location.

Dm:

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.

A quick Google search doesn't pull anything from up. I can guarantee if they lost their authority you'd have been made aware of it through them. I quit Facebook a long time ago but one thing I always did was Google any "news". If it was real (well, as real as we can get now a days....) surely there would be atleast one of the major players mentioning something.

Just for craps and giggles did the false story provide a reason behind it? I'm guessing it was some schmuck sitting around at a shipper/receiver with too much time on their hands.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
