Make informed and strategic business decisions.

Our shipper load boards give you the tools to stay profitable and on the ball at all times.

With more ways to move freight than ever before, DAT makes it easier to find capacity, improve your planning, and use historical demand and rates to determine your next move. We save you the hassle of finding carriers and independent truck drivers, negotiating a rate, and tracking down invoices so you can focus on getting your loads delivered.

  • Load boards are web-based programs that connect shippers and carriers. Shippers can post the loads they need delivered on digital bulletin boards, where they are visible to carriers and freight brokers. Drivers can also post their trucks on DAT’s load boards, and when the system detects a match, it will notify you so you can get the wheels turning ASAP.

  • Think of how much time you could spend on finding a carrier, settling on a price, and making sure everyone gets paid on time. And that’s just for one load! DAT shipper load boards streamline the process of finding carrier capacity, while giving you the business information to make smarter, more competitive decisions. Plus, with DAT, you can easily double-check carrier driving records and licenses to build better business partnerships.

  • Not at all. We know that keeping loads on the road should be your focus, so we take the logistical hassle out of your hands. Keeping your business running smoothly is key, so we’ve designed our direct shipper load boards to be easy to navigate and use. Post loads, search for trucks by type or capacity, save your preferences, and get back to what’s most important.

  • DAT’s load boards are the biggest and most-used superdatabase for freight and trucking in the business. Our on-demand network has more than one million trucks on more than 65,000 lanes, so you’ll have no problem finding capacity and getting your loads delivered — regardless of truck type or whether you’re looking to move specialty freight.

  • Load boards can even benefit shippers who already have partnerships with carriers, especially if business is booming and your shipments are moving beyond your current capacity. Shipper load boards help you find carriers with good credit scores and driving records, so you can keep goods moving. The DAT Load Boards for Truckers mobile app makes it easy for your loads to be seen by drivers and carriers all across the country, too.

  • We do! DAT CarrierWatch keeps track of changes in carrier status, and an intelligent alert system sends you notifications when carrier data changes. CarrierWatch integrates with your TMS and keeps you in the know whenever the system detects changes that could impact authority, DOT profile, inspections, insurance, and more.
