A few things you might be asking yourself

All of your carriers must fill out paperwork and be onboarded as contractors for your business before they can start transporting freight. An onboarding program simplifies this process. DAT lets carriers fill out profiles online and fill out forms from any device.

Quality carriers are the cornerstone of your business. With OnBoard, you gain access to more than 50,000 detailed carrier profiles so you can find the right partners for your business. All contracts can be signed electronically and you can onboard carriers from anywhere, via any electronic device.
Once you direct carriers to your DAT-hosted website (which features your logo and other branding), carriers will have the opportunity to complete a profile and upload important documents from any device. We’ll then validate the carrier’s W9 information so they can sign a copy of your contract.
