DAT partners with Equifax to update Days-to-Pay calculations

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.

DAT partnered with Equifax to update the way the load board calculates a broker’s average Days to Pay with greater accuracy.

For brokers, you should see your average Days to Pay updated in the coming weeks. For the majority of businesses, the number of days has been lowered.

Another added benefit of partnering with Equifax is that new businesses can establish credit scores faster than with other agencies. Typically, a company establishes a credit score after just four months of payments reported to the agency.
