DAT helps make finding loads for truck drivers a quick and efficient experience. More than 623,000 loads are posted to our boards each business day, and we give you the tools and capabilities to not only find your next load quickly, but to grow your business strategically, as well.
Freight brokers and shippers all across the country — as well as in Canada — post millions of new truck loads on DAT boards every week. In addition to giving you the tools to find the loads that are right for your business, we also run the numbers to provide the most accurate information on lane rates in the industry.
DAT and its accompanying mobile app make it easier for owner operators to grow their business. The boards show new listings in real time, giving you round-the-clock access and visibility into where to find truck loads. The system will even email you when it finds new matches that meet your criteria, saving you the trouble of checking in multiple times a day.
Whether you’re operating a fleet of small-bed trucks or have the vehicles to handle heavy haul loads and other forms of specialized freight, DAT is the best tool to help you find your next freight delivery. Search through more than 70 trailer types with ease.
Many fleet owner and owner operators, especially when they’re just starting out, use brokers to connect with shippers and help facilitate the freight delivery process. Some trucking companies have budgets to hire dispatch services who help find loads and assist in backend operations, while others rely on load boards to find truck loads. The advantage of tools like DAT is that they allow drivers to search for loads no matter where they are, and vet the business partners they choose to work with by checking credit scores, days to pay, and reviews from other companies.
DAT is the best place to start. The search feature is simple and straightforward to use, allowing you to list specifics about your trucks and save frequent searches so they can be accessed quickly later. Inbound/outbound maps give visibility into where trucks are headed, while the Alarm Match feature sends you updates when the system detects new loads that match your search filters and preferred vendors.
