You may have noticed a small change recently in the load board products from DAT Freight & Analytics. When searching for freight, you’ll now see a blue checkmark next to loads that have been pre-approved by our factoring partner OTR Capital.
When capacity is tight, brokers need to make sure their freight is attractive to prospective carriers. One way is to advertise their dependability, as proven by a high credit score and a low Days-to-Pay average.
Our new 3-day average rate is the Goldilocks of rate benchmarks: the perfect blend of time and density. This new metric provides insight on current rate trends more than 50% faster than the 7-day average and has excellent national coverage across the three main equipment types.
Do you move freight in and out of Canada? DAT is now partnering with Global eTrade Services (GeTS) to offer simplified cross-border eManifest services to carriers moving freight across the border into Canada.
DAT has acquired the Freight Market Intelligence Consortium, allowing us to give our customers unrivaled logistical insight and a stunning 360-degree view of the entire supply chain from both the contract and spot side of the market.
DAT's Book Now feature, currently being refined in a pilot program, will allow carriers using DAT load boards to search for freight and lock in the rate with the click of a button on their mobile or desktop device.
