Truck Dispatcher - Lead
A fantastic role for a trucking dispatcher who wants a growth, a great work environment, and a chance to guide the company as it develops? Right here, ladies and gentlemen. Apply your dispatch knowledge and trucking experience, and develop quickly into a supervisory role in this rapidly growing company. Day shift, benefits, vacation time and a chance to work somewhere that you have real input on company direction. It’s got it all. So apply already.
This role is fast-tracked to become a working supervisor within a year, provided you’ve got the right drive and leadership potential. You would be running a team of 4-6 dispatchers on days, and liaising with 2-3 who work the night shift.
This privately owned and run company is extremely big on employee input. A very team and collaboration centered approach has led to their success, and stays the focus as the company grows. They operate a 24/7 trucking business that services almost all of North America.

As a dispatcher, you will be answering calls and dispatching drivers (both owner/operators and employees) to locations across North America. You will have an array of tools at your disposal to keep organized, as orders may come via text, e-mail, phone or fax. You’ll be at the activity hub, and there will be a lot to juggle. As you develop and take on more of a supervisory capacity, you’ll be the customer service escalation point, the resource the team can tap for more knowledge or support, and the leader on the front lines.
