Dispatching & Transportation Operations

  • Description

Dispatching and Transportation Operations Training in Surrey

A trucking career can involve much more than simply driving a truck. Trucking, or the transportation operations industry, can cover a wide range of career opportunities. Consider, for example, the definition given to transportation operations by Industry Canada: “The trucking sector consists of those companies that move goods by means of road transport (carriers). It includes firms that undertake the transport of goods for compensation (for-hire carriers), the trucking operations of firms that maintain their own fleets of vehicles (private carriers), and the business of owner-operators who haul trailers or other equipment using their own trucks (either leased or owned).”

This definition illustrates the sheer breadth and scope of the transport operations industry and hints at the numerous job titles and functions it encompasses, including:

  • Operations Manager
  • Local Dispatcher
  • Highway Dispatcher
  • Driver Manager/Trainer/Recruiter
  • Load Planner
  • Safety & Compliance Officer
  • Representative
  • Log Book Auditor
  • Fleet Maintenance
  • Loss Prevention Administrator
  • Warehouse Supervisor
  • Customer Service Rep
  • Sales

These trucking careers all have very different earning potential, though generally speaking, starting salaries in the transportation operations industry are quite high. Graduates from the Dispatching and Transportation Operations Program are well positioned to take advantage of the high demand for trained graduates, and may be hired by major transportation companies.

*This program has been approved by the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of Ministry of Advanced Education.

Sherry Clark Transportation Operations and Dispatching

Hello, my name is Sherry.

I decided to take a course to further my education and hopefully make a better future for myself. After great deliberation and a lot of research on the job market, I decided on the Dispatching and Transportation Operations course.

When I started the course it was really different going back to school. However the friendliness of the staff made you feel welcome. I had no trouble getting into the swing of things. My instructors (Jerry and Lawrence) were always helpful and easy to talk to and very encouraging. I learned a lot and I also felt challenged, it was a great experience. I would recommend this course and ATC as a great choice of schools.

It was an experience I won’t forget, nor will I forget the people at ATC.

Thank you all for making it a wonderful few months. I feel confident that my future will be much brighter now.

Best Regards

Sherry
