Find OTR freight and business partners.
Use the DAT load board to find the perfect loads and shippers every time.
At DAT, we know that finding trustworthy brokers and shippers isn’t as easy as it should be. We also know that finding the perfect OTR load can be time-consuming. That’s why we have the largest load board in the industry and enable carriers to see potential partners’ credit scores, reviews, average days-to-pay, and more, making finding loads and vetting brokers and shippers faster and easier than ever.
Access detailed and insightful data.
Grow your business and make better decisions with DAT’s help.
Having access to custom analytics, average lane rates nationwide, accurate freight forecasting models, and more can make all the difference to your over-the-road trucking business. Not only will you be able to leverage DAT’s data to negotiate better rates, but you’ll also be able to make data-driven decisions to increase your profits and help your business thrive.
If you transport freight over 250 miles, you’re an over-the-road trucker. OTR is also known as long distance trucking and often requires drivers to be on the road for days or weeks at a time. You’ll get to travel thousands of miles and make a larger salary than short haul truckers, but you won’t be able to go home as often. Instead, you’ll likely spend a large portion of your time sleeping in hotels or your truck.
“The DAT Load Board is the only one I use, and I really don’t see any interest in trying any other one.”
