Question How to recognize the transporter dispatched by a dispatcher?

Hi,
Could anyone help me to recognize the transporter dispatched by a dispatcher?
Attached is a model that demonstrates my scenario. It can be described as follows:
1. Processor1 and Processor2 are used in step 1, and Processor 3 for step 2;
2. Flowitems can be brought to Processor3 through three different path networks, and each path is connected to a transporter, all these transporters are dispatched by Dispatcher1;
3. When the processing procedure is finished in Processor1or Processor2, the item will be transferred to next station (Processor3) via one Transporter, a Crane, and the other Transporter sequently;
4. I tried to write a Coordinated Task Sequences in the OnProcessFinish Trigger of Processor2, and allocated tasks to Transporter2, Crane1 and Dispatcher1 for the transferring purpose.

Now, my question is how can I recognize the definite transporter (in Transporter3~5) dispatched by Dispatcher1? Perhaps in this way, I can specify the unload position of Crane1(“Don’t travel offsets for load/unload tasks” is selected for Transporter3~5).

Thanks for your help in advance.

PS: I have made grammatical mistakes in "the transporter dispatched by a dispatcher" in title, perhaps, It's more felicity to say that "the transporter to which a task sequence would be passed by a dispatcher"!
