DAT Trendlines Enhances Trucking Industry Info

DAT Trendlines has undergone a total makeover, adding color, maps and other enhancements that improve the visitor’s experience.

The DAT web site continues to provide trend information on spot market freight availability, truck capacity and rates, at no charge, and fans of DAT Trendlines can subscribe to weekly email updates. All the data is preserved, derived from DAT Load Boards and DAT RateView, and Trendlines fans who have bookmarked their favorite pages will be redirected automatically to find the same information they have relied on for more than four years.

Here is a quick tour of the new features:
