When it comes to backhaul loads, trucking professionals may be hesitant to embrace the true potential of these return trip shipments. With DAT’s TruckersEdge and DAT Power load boards, that hesitancy can disappear. The load boards not only have thousands of new loads posted each day — including many that you can use for your backhaul, they also feature the TriHaul tool that offers automatic triangular routing suggestions to reduce deadhead and keep your rate per mile high.

Sometimes your plans change and you need to find a backhaul load fast. When you use DAT, you don’t have to worry about being stuck without a load. The DAT One mobile app is free to DAT load board subscribers and accessible anywhere you have service. When you use the app, you get access to the 1.37 million new loads posted every business day so you can eliminate deadhead miles.
Backhaul trucking is often thought of as a dirty word for carriers, but it doesn’t have to be. The definition of backhaul trucking is simply the load you take to get back to your home base. While the main purpose of the load is to eliminate deadhead, when you use a quality load board with rate and market data, you can actually use your backhaul to improve your bottom line for the trip.
“The DAT Load Board is the only one I use, and I really don’t see any interest in trying any other one.”
