Before you bid on shipping loads, it’s important that you know the going rate for similar loads. DAT’s shipping load board provides you with in-depth data on market rates so you can make competitive bids and secure the best paying loads every time.
When you subscribe to DAT, you can access average spot market rates for either a 15-day or 30-day period that’s based on real data from invoices.
Identify where your services are in high demand.
Determining where your services are needed most can help you improve your earnings.
Supply and demand can vary a lot from lane to lane, and your services might be in much higher demand on one lane than another. You shouldn’t leave it up to guesswork to find where your services are needed the most. Both the DAT One Pro (Formerly TruckersEdge Pro) and DAT One Select (Formerly Power Select) packages let you view locations where trucks are leaving vs. entering so you can maximize your time on the road.
If you want to bid on shipping loads, you must first identify the appropriate rate for the load. This requires a strong understanding of the load’s criteria (a difficult broker or a long route might make high-paying loads not worth the trouble) and the going rates for comparable loads and lanes.
Once you’ve identified the right rate, you can get started on the bidding process. Your best bet is to charge a price as close as possible to the market rate. You can use DAT’s shipping load board to find market rate estimates based on actual invoice data, so you can make as accurate an estimate as possible.
