Auto Transport Dispatcher

Broker 300x204 Auto Transport Dispatcher

"Auto Transport Dispatcher" Not Just Another Business Opportunity!

Design your life, on your terms.

Building a business by becoming a nationwide auto transport dispatcher can be a winning and profitable business venture. Dependable auto shippers, otherwise known as car haulers are busy driving the trucks. The drivers need to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.

Today it's not uncommon for owner-operators, (also known as car-haulers, drivers and auto-shippers) to find themselves trying to do it all. As a business owner it is not smart to spread yourself too thin. This can endanger not only the driver and equipment but others on the roadways too. This is where working with an auto transport dispatcher is a smart investment.

When the owner-operator contracts with an auto transport dispatcher it accomplishes several things. First it relieves a lot of stress for the driver. It allows him or her to focus on driving. They can maximize their time away from home and increase their profitability. Secondly, the dispatcher makes money.

By providing quality customer service you set yourself apart from other dispatchers. Not only will your customer love you, they will refer their fellow drivers to you.

Are you cut out to be an auto transport dispatcher?

Owning and operating your own business is work. Building an auto transport dispatch center is not for the slacker. It is not for the person who prefers a 9 to 5 job either. If you want flexibility and an honest days work being a dispatcher may be the right position for you.

Office hours vary by the individual business, after all you are your own boss. Being able to serve clients including the auto transport broker is critical. Remember, your drivers run 11 hour days, 7 days a week. Auto transport brokers operate a more traditional business and work during office hours. Being flexible is key to your success.

If you are a hard worker, you can build a solid, successful business. If you like a competitive environment, building a nationwide auto transport dispatch center may be for you.

If working  with people of varying backgrounds, experience and temperament is a challenge for you; the dispatch center may not be your cup of tea.

However; if you have a competitive spirit you will thrive in the auto transport environment. Getting up early in the morning gives your business a head start…it's the best time of the day. Remember as in any competition, you've got to be on top of your game to play with the big boys. Showing up early is one of those key elements you will want as part of your winning game plan.

As a dispatcher you will be working with all different sorts of people, this makes it fun. Unlike the broker your customer will be both the auto transport broker and the person shipping the car. Imagine having a boss you love working with…you will have lots of them. Then, imagine having a boss you don't like working with…you'll have those, too. But, you get to choose if you want to work with them or not. wink smile Auto Transport Dispatcher

Building your own auto transport dispatch center covers all the facets of the work place. You will serve people over the phone, via the internet and email. The diversity is exciting and helps keep you on top of your game.

Logistics of building an auto transport dispatch center…

U.S. Department of Transportation laws will regulate the physical area your drivers can work in. Interstate and intrastate transports fall under this scope of limitations.You will want to request a full packet from your dependable auto shipper, including his or her authority.

Part of the excitement of working as an auto transport dispatcher is the continuous learning process. No two cars or loads are the same. It is the same with your drivers, each one has unique needs and circumstances.

What does the auto transport dispatcher load?

As an auto transport dispatcher you will search for and secure many types of vehicles. This may include automobiles; sedans, pick-up trucks, SUV's (sport utility vehicles), mini vans and motorcycles.

You will learn how to use Google search, mapping programs, metric conversion software and more. You will become familiar with your owner-operator's set up quickly. You will also learn how to properly give your customers an auto transport quote. Of course you are not a licensed, bonded auto transport broker; but, you can give a quote based on your truck's rate.

So, if you get excited by continually learning and improving your customer service skills; dispatching may be for you. If it is a challenge you welcome, dispatching may be just the business opportunity for you, too.

As with any business opportunity, auto transport dispatching is what you make of it. Hard work, love of serving business-owners, and scheduling your own work time may make dispatching just the right business opportunity for you.

    Hey, I didn’t realize there was another possible role in the auto transport chain! That’s the beauty of specialization: the trucker can focus on what he/she does best while a dispatcher works to keep his loads and backhauls filled. And, if done right, it does not have to increase the cost to the vehicle owner because specialization = greater efficiency …

    • admin

      That’s right Sharon. One thing I’ve learned as an entreprenuer is you always must be thinking on your feet. You will get chewed up, spit out and tromped on if you are not constantly watching your market and business. When your desire to remain independent is strong enough, you will look for opportunities that may be right under your nose. You may not have seen them the day before, yet now it is right in front of you ripe for the picking. Truly serving others pays big rewards.

    A friend of mine has a trucking company and they are super busy – there is alot of work that goes into the business. Getting loads and hauling things to get to a location at a certain time is pretty amazing. With out people like you – American would not have the items they need * keep hauling*

    • admin

      I don’t doubt they are super busy Angela. When an independent business owner runs the business properly, they will remain in business and on the road. That is one of our goals in our coaching program is to properly train brokers to assist the truckers’ business remain profitable.

      Our motto is “an educated customer is a satisfied, stress free customer”. Not sure why others in the industry leave them in the dark, but they do it every day. It creates headaches for everyone, including the other brokers.
