When it comes to supply chain planning, you want to access pricing information that is clear and up-to-date. That’s exactly what you get with DAT iQ. Drawing on information shared by our shipping partners around the world, you get customizable data reporting that allows you to predict pricing at each step of the supply chain with maximum accuracy.

Without proper planning, you can find yourself falling victim to one of many supply chain challenges, such as the “diseconomy of scale.”
Trucking is unlike other industries in several ways. For instance, in many industries, buying a higher quantity of a product will lead to a lower unit cost, but in trucking, more loads on a given lane can actually lead to a higher cost per load. Understanding the nuances of markets and lanes and planning ahead can help you avoid falling into the trap of higher costs.
