A few things you
might be asking yourself

Based on a customer’s data submission, DAT Carrier Select™ software will display your actual lanes alongside their Market Delta.

Market delta is the difference between your network’s costs on these lanes and the benchmark rates based on DAT customer contributions. It represents the potential opportunity if this alternative carrier is able to match DAT benchmark contract rates.
There can be up to 20 carriers per lane to ensure results are narrowed down to top-ranking carriers for that lane.
Currently, shippers of all sizes across all industries: Food and beverage, heavy machinery, construction, automobile, consumer products, and everything in between.

Absolutely. You can request a demo here and our experts will schedule time to show how DAT Carrier Select™ software could make an impact for your business.

From the DAT Load Board activity on your lanes.
