Fix routing guide failures by finding new carriers.
See which carriers are interested in lanes that have fallen out of your routing guide.
When lanes fall out of your logistics routing guide, you need to find alternative carriers as soon as possible to stay on-time, while avoiding spot premiums. DAT LaneMakers shows carriers that have posted loads for specific lanes as well as search activity on those lanes, to help you identify carriers to quickly plug leaking routing guides and eventually build new business relationships.
Contain costs to stay within budget
Avoid spot market premiums that result from prolonged routing guide failures.
When freight routing guides fail, you’re often forced to resort to higher rates on the spot market, and if this goes on for too long, you risk quickly overextending your transportation costs. DAT LaneMakers gives you insights into carriers already seeking shipments for your trouble lanes to help you avoid the spot market and keep costs within budget.
Keep customers satisfied with on-time deliveries.
Identify carriers to keep your products on the shelves and expand your freight network
To maintain the health of your network and ultimately your business’s bottom line, you need to keep your products on the shelves to satisfy your customers. With insight into carriers proactively looking at lanes that are falling through your carrier routing guide, you can ensure shipments meet customer delivery windows while uncovering new carrier relationship opportunities.
LaneMakers shows carrier activity on lanes in your network focusing on the 3-digit ZIP level, with additional visibility into market, cross-market, and overall region. You can see overall post and search activity over the past 30, 60, or 90 days, or the past 6 and 12 months. It also includes a table of load searches and postings by specific carriers, showing their location, contact information, and posting types, to streamline sourcing and negotiations.
“LaneMakers is an incredible place to go to find dark capacity you’re not gonna (be able to) find on a load board, or may not find in your own internal lane history.”
