  • Hot shot loads are defined as freight that needs to be delivered fast and is small enough to fit in a box truck or on a removable gooseneck. These loads often come from industries like oil fields or construction because they need equipment to be moved fast so it can be used at another site.

    Running hot shot loads can be an easier way to start a trucking operation because of the lower cost of equipment. You can use smaller vehicles with hot shot loads, which means you don’t need to invest in a big rig. With the help of hot shot carrier load boards, you can find loads to kickstart and grow your business with ease.

  • Hot shot load boards like DAT make it easy to find small-truck loads. There are three main tactics for finding hot shot loads on the DAT board:

    1. Post Your Truck: Enter detailed information about your truck to help brokers find you and to make sure you stand out to them.

    2. General Equipment Search: Do a general search and choose “partial” load and the equipment types and filters that fit your operation. This might find you more loads since brokers don’t always label loads as “hot shots” even if they can be hauled by on a hot shot trailer.

    3. Specific Equipment Search: You can do a specific search entering "flatbed hot shot" as the equipment type for both “full” and “partial” loads.

    With all of these searches, you can favorite the search and set an alarm so that you’re notified whenever a new load fitting the search criteria is added.

  • DAT provides the biggest hot shot load boards in trucking. With 887,000 new loads posted every business day, DAT’s load board is the best place to find the hot shot loads that match your interests. DAT also lets you set alarms so you can make sure you’re alerted as soon as a new load matching your search criteria is added. That means you can go about your life as usual knowing you won’t miss any possible hot shot loads.

    With DAT, you can see where trucks are in demand, which is where you are likely to have the most negotiating power. You can also see the average market rate on each lane you search in addition to being able to research business partners with the help of credit scores and company reviews.

    Unlimited searching and posting on the biggest load marketplace anywhere means that DAT is the best place to find your hot shot loads.
