Free Load Board
Free Load Board
Free load boards can help you find a limited number of loads, but a paid subscription to DAT offers access to unlimited searches, mileage and routing, and more.
When it comes to running a trucking business and finding the right loads, free isn’t always best. Investing in a quality paid load board can more than pay off in the long run.
- Find the right loads with unlimited searching and posting.
- Find the loads that best meet your needs.
- Make sure you’re getting paid the best possible rates.
Find the right loads with unlimited searching and posting.
With DAT’s paid load board, you’ll gain access to the biggest on-demand truckload marketplace.
Free load boards are limited: they may cap how many searches you can perform or only offer loads that other carriers aren’t willing to move. DAT offers the ability to create a free account before signing up for the paid load board, as well as access to the free DAT One app. However, a paid subscription offers unlimited searching and posting, with the power to conduct separate searches based on current location, possible destinations, equipment, truck size, and more.
Find the loads that best meet your needs.
Limited searching means limited results. With paid load boards like DAT, you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
Make sure you’re getting paid the best possible rates.
Get information on business partners and average market rates to help your business grow.
Free freight load boards don’t give you the details you need to choose the right loads.
With DAT’s paid load board, you can easily see where trucks are in high demand, what the average market rate is for each lane, and company reviews and credit scores for business partners — including information on when they typically pay. You can use this information to boost your negotiating power and find the best possible rates.
Free load boards are exactly what they sound like — load boards that you can access without paying for the service. However, with a free option, you don’t get very much.
If you aren’t quite ready to commit to a paid subscription, a free load board like the DAT One app can give you a taste of what the paid service looks like. This free option lets you search for a limited number of loads based exclusively on your current location. Because of the limitations of free load boards, most carriers invest in a paid subscription to gain access to additional features.
