Truck Dispatchers

Outlook

The Department of Labor (DOL) predicts about 3 percent employment growth in the transportation and material moving industry through 2029. In 2020 alone, the trucking industry was projected to have declines in revenue and profit due to the coronavirus pandemic, as reported by IBISWorld. Truck dispatchers will have a 1 percent decline in employment, losing up to 1,900 dispatcher jobs, through 2029. Trucking and transportation companies will continue to need dispatchers, however, to manage and oversee their fleets and delivery schedules. Dispatchers who are flexible to work evening and weekend hours will have better chances of securing work than those who can only work weekday business hours.
