Pay by Experience Level for Intermodal Dispatcher

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


More years of relevant experience do not necessarily translate to higher paychecks. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $36K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $41K on average — a distinctly larger sum. Intermodal Dispatchers with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $45K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $46K.
