DAT Load Boards now feature a total of 72 trailer types that can be posted and searched on the DAT 3sixty and TruckersEdge products. The addition of 25 percent more trailer types enhances the level of detail that freight brokers, 3PLs and other load providers can post when describing their available cargo. Motor carriers use the expanded list to find freight that exactly matches their available trucks and trailers.
The 72 trailers include specialty equipment such as auto carriers, over-dimensional and Conestoga vans, as well as different types of equpment to handle hazardous materials. The new categorizations are available on all DAT Load Board products. The designations are also accessible on the DAT Extended Network, which includes monitors installed at more than 1,000 truck stops nationwide, as well as the company’s free smart phone app, My DAT Trucker Services, which has been downloaded by more than 120,000 users of iPhone and Android devices.
