I'm really impressed by this course, actually. Stanislav(the teacher) is awesome and it is visible from the very first class that he is aware of what he is talking about. The way he easily explains the complecated topics is really incredible. For me(the person, who had no idea how this business works) this course gave a great understanding of main principles, tools and proper ways of negotiating with brokers. I highly recommend this school to everyone who is interested in working in dispatching.

How much money can I make as a truck dispatcher?

As a dispatcher for a trucking company you can expect to start working at around $700-1000/week. But as your skills improve, there’s no really upper limit to how much money you can make. Here’s the breakdown for you: 

-Dispatchers receive a % from weekly Gross revenue. It ranges between 2-3% (As an employee) to 10% (as a business owner). 

-Each truck averages between $6000-10000/week (Let’s take $8000 average). You can make from $240-800/week from only 1 truck.

-Each dispatcher normally works with 5-6 trucks (Experts can work with 10-15 trucks). You can make $1200-4000/week, depending on your expertise and the way your operation is setup.
