Getting to Know Dispatchers Amy M. and Evelyn C.

March 26, 2021

Dispatchers have been described as the quarterbacks of their teams. They are the ones who keep schedules on track and make the day run smoothly for our drivers. To recognize our amazing dispatchers around the country, we are starting a new series to get to know them a little better. Today, we’re thrilled to recognize Amy M and Evelyn C.  for their awesomeness on the job. We had a few questions for Amy and Evelyn – check out their responses below.
