Amstan Spotlight Dispatcher
COLUMBUS, OHIO… April Wamsley has been working in the trucking industry for 29 years. Drivers like the fact that April not only dispatches their freight, but she also schedules our driver’s loads with the customers and agents. She is involved in the entire process from start to finish.
April knows each Amstan flatbed contractor personally, and knows what type of loads, lanes, and freight they prefer. She is very accommodative to her driver’s. When they need to get home she gets them there, as well as, getting the loads to locations they want. While planning loads, it would be hard to find anyone better. She plans ahead and schedules many two-way hauls for her contractors; often letting her driver’s know in advance where the next pickup will be. April takes the time to calculate a driver’s compensation rate, and advises the driver up front exactly what their rate is prior to booking the load.
Amstan has more freight than they know what to do with, so there are lots of choices at good rates. Most of the flatbed loads are from mills in Ohio and Indiana, going primarily to Texas, the Carolinas, Southern Illinois and Missouri. The average length of haul is 400 to 600 miles, unless a driver wants April to find a load going to another destination. Amstan flatbed contractors enjoy a minimal amount of waiting between loads and often know where their next pickup is in advance.
Amstan offers flatbed contractors 74% of line haul with 100% fuel surcharge and accessorial pay. Brokered freight pays 80% of line haul plus 100% fuel surcharge and accessorial pay. Base plates are free, Amstan pays for fuel taxes and permits, and company trailers are available for rent or lease. Amstan can keep contractors loaded and running nearly anywhere that they call home.
