DAT iQ processes more than annual freight transactions, providing real-time analysis and rates for lanes.

To maximize the efficiency of your trucking supply chain, you need a deep well of accurate data that allows you to pinpoint the areas of improvement. This data also needs to be relevant to the problem being solved. That’s why, rather than creating a proxy for trucking volumes using a metric like tender rejection, DAT iQ measures actual shipments that are moved, both under contract and on the spot market.

Generate reports and analyses tailored to your supply chain.

Get a clearer view of market conditions and the factors impacting your logistics and transportation strategies — all in easy-to-read graphs.
