Find new opportunities and optimize your deliveries.

There’s a reason DAT is the load board used by the majority of independent owner-operators.

DAT offers the best database of rate info in the country, giving you access to freight of all kinds. The DAT load board shows jobs for dry vans, reefers, flatbeds, and other trailer types, and the inbound/outbound charts let you know where your trucks are needed next. If you don’t typically work with contracts, then the spot freight load board is there for you, too.

Stay ahead of the competition.

Take advantage of DAT’s lane rate and market data and be the first to know about market trends.

Using DAT’s freight load board gives your business a leg up. We vet brokers, and you can see their company credit scores and average time to pay to ensure that you’re picking the right loads that make sense for your business. DAT also lets you know which loads can be factored, taking the worry out of having cash on-hand.

  • DAT’s freight load boards streamline the process of posting trucks and finding loads for independent operators. We’re proud to offer the most detailed available freight load boards, with 623,000 loads posted on our boards each business day. DAT allows you to filter loads by trailer type and destination, pick up spot freight to cut down on deadhead, and get paid on time.

  • The DAT load board contains the most accurate freight rates you’ll find in the industry. We track the going lane rate that brokers have paid over the past 15 or 90 days (depending on your plan), so you can make informed decisions about the loads that are most worth your time.

    The load boards are also designed to be easy to use, so you can filter and sort multiple searches on the same screen to compare broker credit scores, days to pay, and reviews from other owner operators. Market maps show you where demand is hot and where to go next.

  • We certainly think so! With a subscription, you’ll get access to the DAT freight load board, as well as our financial services, including our partnership with Triumph Business Capital, which offers factoring services for carriers. All load board subscriptions include our mobile app, which makes it painless to find loads on the road.
