A box truck dispatcher is someone responsible for coordinating the pickup and delivery of various cargo loads between suppliers, drivers, and clients. A box truck dispatcher’s job is to manage freight on behalf of a carrier.

That includes using load boards and personal connections to locate freight that needs to be shipped, speaking to brokers, conducting negotiations, and eventually dispatching drivers and setting up their routes. In many cases, the position also includes some back-end work like reviewing truck drivers’ logs and tracking their hours.

No doubt, a box truck dispatcher is often confused with a freight broker, but the two positions have different and distinct roles. A broker is a legal entity that serves as a middleman between the shipper or manufacturer (who needs their freight moved) and the carrier (who can move that freight).

The freight broker is legally allowed to represent both the carrier and the shipper at the same time, but they should never have a personal investment in either side. In contrast to a freight broker, a box truck dispatcher is directly affiliated with a carrier and is consistently working on their behalf.

Even if you are an independent freight dispatcher, you are still essentially an employee of whichever carrier you are currently working for and whenever you conduct negotiations with a freight broker, you do so on behalf of the carrier. Unlike brokers, freight dispatchers are not legally allowed to represent shippers or manufacturers.

A freight brokerage business needs to have freight broker authority through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and a freight broker bond (the surety bond), among other requirements.
