Dry van trailers are versatile and efficient, which is why they’re the most common type of freight transportation in the country. They’re the backbone of modern logistics and play a vital role in keeping the economy healthy and making sure things get where they need to be. DAT load boards for vans are built to help you find the right dry van load every time.
At DAT, we’re dedicated to making your job easier. Not only is there no limit to the number of searches you can make or the number of listings you can post on our van load boards, you’re also able to check broker credit scores and average time to pay to help ensure you’re doing business with the right partners.
Every business day, more than 623,000 loads are posted to DAT’s van load board. We crunch the numbers on billions of dollars’ worth of real transactions to bring you average rate data from the last 15 days — that way you’re prepared before negotiations start. Our up-to-date market info is just one of the money-saving features we offer that enable carriers to grow their business.
A dry van is a truck trailer that is fully enclosed and protected from the elements. Unlike a flatbed truck, it is covered on top, and unlike a “reefer,” it is not refrigerated or temperature controlled. A dry van is one of the most versatile and popular types of trucks and can be used to haul a variety of LTL and truckload shipments.
Ultimately, our load boards help make your life easier. Instead of having to manually find freight, DAT puts shippers and brokers in touch with drivers working more than 65,000 lanes. You save on operational costs, we handle the logistical side of things, and you have access to more opportunities than ever. Let us connect the dots so you can keep freight on the move.
Whether you’re looking for dry van, hotshot, oversize, or nearly any other kind of freight, DAT’s load boards allow you to line up the next job with just a few clicks. Post your truck or set up load search alerts and we’ll send you alerts as soon as the system detects a match. You can search for spot rates on your preferred lanes, save your favorite search filters, and even use triangular routing suggestions to maximize profits.
We offer access to DAT’s load boards and services that are tailored to the specific needs of carriers, brokers, and owner operators.

Yes! At DAT, we think of ourselves as being a partner rather than just a service provider, and we’ve designed our operations to help you be as competitive as possible in all aspects of your business. Your load board subscription not only gets you listings for all dry van, flatbed, and other loads in your area, it also shows inbound/outbound maps, so you’ll know where demand is high.

We do! Our partner Triumph Business Capital provides rapid and reliable invoice factoring, which allows most drivers to deliver their loads and get paid in under 24 hours. DAT load board listings have a small icon that indicates whether the load automatically qualifies for factoring with Triumph, which helps eliminate the need to track down late invoices. Our DAT Assurance program also assists with collecting late payments from clients — and we guarantee that you’ll get paid up to $1,000 for any load you deliver using our load boards.
