Truck Dispatchers

Work Environment

Truck dispatchers work in trucking company offices and sit for much of their workday. Some independent truck dispatchers may work from their home office. No matter where they work, they use computers, phones, smartphones, and mobile devices. They spend much of their time speaking on the phone with customers and truck drivers, and using computers to arrange trucking schedules and to monitor truck routes. Coordinating schedules and drivers to meet customers' needs can be stressful, particularly when problems arise that can cause delays in pickups and deliveries. Truck dispatchers may also experience eyestrain and have physical problems from the long hours of sitting and staring at computer screens.
