Freight Broker VS Freight Dispatcher

Freight brokers work with shippers and carriers but do not represent either.

Dispatchers represent only the carrier when negotiating freight.

A dispatcher may not deal directly with shippers on their behalf. They must act as the representative of the trucking company or owner-operator. You will need broker authority if you deal directly with the shipper and sell those loads to outside carriers or owner-operators. We will teach you how to get with our 5-day classes.
