Digital freight matching helps brokers and shippers connect with their ideal carriers for the best possible partnerships.
Freight matching has been around for decades — first brokers and shippers posted at truck stop bulletin boards, then they used fax machines to connect with carriers. Today, digital freight matching allows you to optimize your deals with high-precision freight matching tools.

Find capacity fast with the DAT Power load board.
Freight matching allows you to identify the right carriers for your freight so you can find the best deals.
The DAT load board offers a range of streamlined solutions to digital freight matching. Instead of posting loads and waiting for carriers to find them, brokers and shippers can use DAT’s digital freight matching algorithm for a great match every time. Digital freight matching software allows carriers to quickly accept loads based on a variety of factors, such as capacity specifics, location, and truck type.

Access digital freight matching tools on the go.
Communicate with carriers and manage your load postings using the DAT One mobile app.
With the free DAT One mobile app, you can access your transportation management system (TMS) from wherever you have internet access. That means you can communicate with carriers as soon as they match with your postings, and post loads as soon as they’re available. Mobile access is the key to efficient transactions, and DAT One makes efficiency easy.
Digital freight matching (DFM) is the newest innovation in a long history of freight matching services. DFM provides an online source for loads that are available immediately. Rates are already posted, so there’s no negotiating necessary.
To find loads using DFM, carriers can simply search for freight using their unique load requirements. Then, an algorithm provides them with the best freight matches. From the DFM website, carriers can find and book loads fast.
