Find emergency freight on DAT’s load boards.

Many freight brokers help with moving and housing 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’s load boards for owner-operators and carriers to find.
