LSO Dispatch Responsibilities Dispatch to Complete and Accurate Dispatch Checklist Abide by High Risk Cargo (HRC) procedures when dispatching freight deemed as HRC Advise BCO or broker carrier in advance if cargo is prone to shifting, falling or any special securement requirements Know your customer: what’s the commodity and it’s value on every load! Report cargo theft immediately! Every minute helps in the recovery effort Coordinate pickup and delivery to eliminate unnecessary layover Monitor check calls Share online security theft information with your customers
Things to remember when using a Broker Carrier Cargo $500,000 or greater No cargo valued of $500,000 may be brokered without getting advance permission unless the carrier has cargo insurance equal to or greater than the value of the freight. Verify broker carrier information to avoid being SCAMMED by cargo thieves. Don’t assume you’re talking to the carrier. Check all their information against the AS400 Don’t accept ICC or MC#, get FID #’s? Have them give you their information – verify what they say Phone and Fax numbers must match what is in the AS400? Notify Landstar Security of any potential scams
