This business is based on contacts and relationships. Your ability to network will drive your business. Typically it can take three to six months of disciplined work to show a substantial profit. Sometimes it takes much less time, sometimes more, but once you begin securing the right customers, they normally have residual shipping, so the sale repeats itself over and over – and you don’t need hundreds of customers to make a great living in this field. Your level of success depends on many factors, such as your level of determination, your tenacity, and your genuine desire to help your customers succeed.

HOW MUCH DOES A TRUCK DISPATCHER EARN A YEAR?

On average each truck can generate $1000 in earnings per month. For a “single person operation” 3 to 5 trucks can be comfortably managed. Therefore, resulting in income of $3000 to $5000 per month.
CAN I DISPATCH TRUCKS PART-TIME?
Yes, you will be able to generate some part time income. But it will be hard to develop a fully operational business on a part time schedule.
