My name is Jason, I work at Status Transportation, and I am a dispatcher it the dispatching office here in Winter Garden, Florida. The job is challenging, but that’s one of the best parts of it, what’s life it isn’t a challenge? It is really good when you challenge yourself, and you see what you can do because when you come into a full day’s load of work and leave, you are happy, and you feel very accomplished.
Especially knowing that you helped your drivers and your team move from one place to another and everybody is happy and making money.
After you get a fleet of drivers is very important that you get a strategy. You really want to communicate well with your drivers; that is the most important thing about being a dispatcher. You want communication and just like in any relationship you want it to work out. You don’t look at it like it’s a boss of a relationship, it’s a team. There is no, hey do this or hey do that, and you run everything by the owner operator. It’s all about how you talk to them, you want to speak to them the right way, you want to come off the right way.
