Find out how to work with a hotshot truck dispatcher.
A hot shot load dispatch represents carriers during freight negotiations so you can find the right loads faster.
Freight dispatchers, including hotshot dispatchers, are intermediaries who represent the carrier in freight negotiations. They work directly with shippers and brokers on your behalf to find the best-paying loads that match your equipment and preferred lanes. The dispatcher takes a percentage of pay for each load you deliver. That means the more you make, the more they get paid — so they have lots of incentive to keep you on the road.
Learn how hotshot dispatch companies can help you find loads.
A hot shot trucking dispatch service can leave you free to focus on growing your business instead of finding loads.
If you can afford to pay for a hotshot dispatch service, then you can get a lot of benefits from using a hotshot freight dispatcher. Dispatchers can take over many of the smaller, back-end tasks that take up your time, but don’t actually need to be performed by you. They can also find you high-paying loads quickly that match your business goals. However, you will pay a premium for these back office services.

Hotshot loads are defined as any freight that needs to be delivered fast and is small enough to fit in a box truck or on a removable gooseneck. These loads often come from industries like oil fields or construction because they need equipment to be moved fast so it can be used at another site. Because hotshot loads have a lower cost of equipment, they can be a good way to start a trucking business.
