"Some say it's simple to get your authority, and that you should save your money and do it yourself. Other people, including myself, are not sure where to even begin. I used a service provided by DAT to get my authority. It was important to me that it was done right the first time, by people who have done this before."

A truck dispatcher serves as a middleman between the carrier and the shipper. A truck dispatcher operates on a carrier’s behalf to find the best loads and negotiate optimal rates. Truck dispatchers are incentivized to find carriers high paying freight since they earn a percentage of the final freight rate.
The best freight dispatchers keep track of their carrier’s equipment specifications, lane preferences, and acceptable freight rates. Dispatchers then contact shippers and connect with brokers to identify new loads according to the carrier’s freight criteria.
