At landstar some new people have a hard time with getting a hang of running off a load board as well as calling agents and booking loads for themselves so their advisor suggests using a "dispatch service". That is a person who...dispatches the owner operator and takes a small percentage as a fee for their service. The dispatch service person is not a landstar employee but someone with access to the inside load board and with a good connection to many agents. I would assume that outside of landstar there are companies who get paid for dispatching owner ops (with own authority) as well.
