I worked for a large trucking company in Georgia for years as a truck dispatcher. After moving back to Alabama I went to work for another trucking company as a truck broker. In comparison to the duties, communicating, and the paperwork the two jobs differ in some ways.
The company where I worked as a dispatcher had 500 trucks. We hauled carpet from Georgia to all 48 states. My job was the mid-west. I had 40 to 50 trucks a day to load back to Georgia, Alabama, and the Tennessee area so they could reload another carpet load. As a broker, I have loads to be picked up or I may have a truck looking to go to a certain place. Therefore, I'm always looking to match
