What do I need to be a Truck Dispatcher?


Answer by  technogeek (6640)

The dispatcher is the person who tells the truckers where they should be going or conveys pertinent information to them while they are driving. You need to be a strong, effective communicator and listener.

Truck dispatchers must be very organized. They must be able to schedule transports in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. Dispatchers also need excellent communication skills. To be hired, you must have experience in the auto industry and a knowledge of Department of Transportation laws.

Answer by  Bilbo (12)

In order to be a truck dispatcher, I would need a map of the area where the trucks I am dispatching are going and I would need a CB radio so I could communicate with the truck drivers. I would also need a phone or computer so I know where I am dispatching the trucks to.
