Find Emergency Freight on DAT Load Boards

Many freight brokers, including some of the largest 3PLs, help with moving and warehousing emergency freight. They may be handling this work on behalf of FEMA itself, or for a non-governmental agency like the American Red Cross. When this freight can't be moved via preferred carriers, it is often posted on DAT Load Boards.
