Reach Truckers on the Road

The DAT Extended Network is a great way to reach drivers where they are—on the road. Using DAT’s trip planning app for drivers, DAT Trucker, drivers can see loads within a certain radius of their current location.


Adding your loads to the DAT Extended Network gives them unprecedented visibility. Drivers see your loads on their smart phones and simply press the “Call This Load” button.

Users of the mobile app include owner-operators, leased-on drivers, and commercial fleet drivers, as well as private fleets looking to fill their trucks on the way home.

Reach 250,000 drivers

Usage of the DAT Trucker app grew by 30% in 2015 and now it has more than 250,000 users. It is one of the most downloaded apps for truckers using both Android and iPhone devices. In addition to finding loads, drivers use the app to find nearby truck stops, diesel prices, CAT scales, hotels, and more.

A new version of the app, launched this month at the Mid-America Trucking Show, features a completely redesigned interface and delivers more fine-tuned search results based on the drivers’ equipment type.
