Being a truck driver and working for a good company is the first step to a successful career, but what if you want more. Thousands of drivers want to experience more and they do this through being in business for themselves. However, in some cases being an owner-operator may be more difficult for some drivers.

Unfortunately there isn’t one simple answer; it all depends on individual circumstances. When looking at your options, consider the following information to decide what is right for you.

Before we begin learning about drive managers, it’s important to distinguish the difference between a dispatcher and a driver manager. A dispatcher’s job is mainly clerical – answering phones and responding to mobile communication messages and emails.
