With DAT’s freight load finder on your side, you can rest easy. Our marketplace gives you real-time access to the biggest network of freight brokers and shippers in the industry, and our mobile app makes it simple to find loads on the go.
The key to keeping your deadhead low and your profit margins high is efficiency. The good news? DAT’s network gives you unlimited access to search and filter the hundreds of thousands of new loads — including hotshot, lowboy, LTL, and more — posted to our boards each business day.
We’ve been in the business for decades, so we’ve had time to tailor our logistics services to the needs of owner operators. Our truck load finder not only allows you to save your most frequent searches, it also provides information about freight broker credit scores, average days to pay, and reviews by other carriers. We’ll help you find the right deal with the right client.
Every load finder subscription includes unlimited access to posts and searches, and we also offer premium features for larger operations. Tools like DAT TriHaul provide automatic triangular routing suggestions for finding truck loads that minimize deadhead, while average rate data on more than 65,000 lanes helps ensure that you’re getting paid a competitive wage.
Lowboy trailers are outfitted to move loads that, due to legal height limits, are too tall to transport on flatbed trucks. A lowboy’s main deck sits between the front and rear wheels, lowering the height of the load as much as possible. These trailers are ideal for moving large machinery and construction equipment. DAT’s lowboy load finder is the preferred choice for owner operators looking to find lowboy loads.
LTL stands for “less than truckload” and refers to smaller loads that don’t use the full capacity of a truck. This allows a driver to pick up multiple LTL loads simultaneously, which can help keep deadhead low and fill extra space. LTL loads are different from hotshot loads, which are small loads that need to be rapidly delivered over short distances. DAT’s boards include comprehensive LTL load finder capabilities, as well.
DAT’s freight load finder tools help you find the highest paying loads on your preferred lanes. However, we know that market rates alone don’t provide all the information you need to make informed business decisions — that’s why we offer detailed broker information for each listing. Well-paying but distant loads might not be worth the money in the end — but with tools like our triangular routing feature, you can expand your service routes in strategic and profitable ways
DAT’s load finders are available at a few different price points with the aim of providing owner operators and carriers with the tools best suited for their business size. Our Standard plan gives you all the basics: unlimited access to the load finder and broker information, while our Enhanced, Professional, and Power plans include more advanced tools and features to help make managing a large fleet a more efficient process. We bill month to month and without long-term contracts — that way you get access to the tools you need without having to overcommit.
We do! Our paid load board plans will of course give you unrestricted access to the largest trucking network in the business, but we do offer a free load board demo and free DAT One app. If you find that these free freight apps are helpful, you’re bound to love the comprehensive set of logistical tools you’ll get with a paid subscription.
Subscriptions to the DAT truck load finder include more than useful tools and broker information. The DAT Assurance program guarantees that you receive payment for all authorized loads found on our network — and we’ll even help you collect if a client is past due. We provide access to rapid invoice factoring services, and our team at DAT Authority can help with all things related to MC and USDOT numbers, registration, paperwork, and more.
