    Hi, what is a reasonable commission to pay to a broker/dispatcher? I see some offers for 5% -7% gross. Is that reasonable?

    I know one broker/dispatcher that charges $100 flat weekly rate for Sprinters.

    What is your experience?

      Are you running with your own authority? Or leased to a carrier.
      If you are leased dispatch should be provided.

      5% is kinda average for a dispatch service.
      But really be careful who you use. And make sure to do billing yourself and then pay your dispatcher.
