Dispatch Sheet Definition

A dispatch sheet is a detailed record of daily transport operations. It includes: 

  • Times
  • Trips assigned to drivers. 
  • Identification numbers
  • Dates
  • And more. 

Dispatch sheets are essential for record-keeping and proper procedures. It allows the dispatcher to group priority transports, general transports, and more together. A dispatch sheet verifies everything to cover the company in case of discrepancies. 

Why Dispatch Sheets Are Important

Dispatch sheets allow the dispatcher to keep track of transports and ensure on-time delivery. In freight transport, the cargo is often essential to the customer's livelihood. If dispatch causes a delay, it causes a delay in delivery, which means everyone has lost time and money. No one wants that, so tracking dispatched equipment is essential.
