Backhauls with Head Haul Rates

Would you add a stop to your route if it meant potentially boosting your revenue 25%, 35% or even 50%, all while only adding a few miles to your trip? DAT RateView™ automatically suggests TriHaul™ (triangle) routes that improve your average rate per loaded mile and total revenue. For example, if you run from Chicago to Dallas, RateView might suggest you look for loads that take you through Oklahoma City. The extra leg adds only 77 miles, but generally pays more than a Chicago-Dallas trip.
