Truck Dispatch Business in the US. Why it can be profitable?
Trucking dispatch business is a part of the multi-million transportation industry in USA. Trucking companies rely on dispatchers to find appropriate freight for them to transport and then communicate with all the parties involved (drivers, brokers, shippers, receivers etc.).
A dispatcher almost always makes money, since their services are either prepaid or they receive percentage of the booked transportation rate. But unlike other parties involved in transportation, a dispatcher does not have to invest much to start dispatching business. A dispatcher mostly invests their skills and time, so anyone who speaks English, has basic computer skills and good internet connection can become a dispatcher.
On average, one dispatcher can serve 3-5 trucks simultaneously. Each truck can generate around a $1,000 per month in revenue for a dispatcher. Therefore, if you find and manage 3 to 5 trucks you can be earning around $3,000 to $5,000.
Can you start dispatching business from your country?
An average pay in developing countries or developed countries with struggling economies is much lower than in America. This is a great advantage, since the labor cost is the biggest expense when running dispatching service.
You will be able to offer American transportation companies a more competitive pricing for your services and by doing so attempt to gain their business. For example, by offering 50% discount you can gain competitive advantage over your American competitors. At the same time, you can still earn $1,500-$2,500 which is still very attractive income in most countries.
How easy is it?
Well, if someone tells you that you can make a lot of money and it will be easy, they are lying to you! The good news is, dispatching is not a rocket science and should not be hard to learn by most people. The bad news is, you will still have to work especially when it comes to properly marketing your dispatch services. But with our training we are providing you with a “blueprint” of operation of US truck dispatch service and marketing to US transportation companies!
