DAT takes the hassle out of finding freight — it’s simple and straightforward to search for loads available on our network. Plus, our system remembers your preferences and frequent searches, and will notify you of any new loads to haul that match your criteria.
We get millions of new loads each week, which means there’s plenty of opportunity to grow your business. In addition to helping you find loads, we analyze transaction data from the boards so you’ll have average market rates for your preferred lanes, as well as maps of where demand for trucks is high.
Once you’ve set your search filters, results will update automatically as new freight listings are posted — that way, you can act fast when the right load comes up. If there aren’t many relevant freight loads available, you don’t need to worry. DAT will alert you as soon as the system detects a match.
Our app allows truck drivers and dispatchers to conveniently search for loads from their mobile devices. Each listing includes broker credit scores, average time to pay, whether the load is automatically factorable, and reviews from other owner operators, all of which helps you research your partner before you take on a load.
DAT is popular among independent owner-operators in part because we’ve been trusted industry professionals since 1978 to help drivers stay loaded every day. Our load boards can help you find freight for all trailer types, including dry van, flatbed, heavy haul, LTL, reefer, and other forms of specialty freight. We also provide the most accurate information on market rates and demand, so you can make better business decisions.
Definitely! First, the DAT board consolidates all truck freight loads available into one searchable system, drastically reducing the time it takes for you to find the next load. DAT also offers additional features — like Alarm Match, LaneMakers™, and DAT Directory™, mileage and routing, and more — to help you easily find loads. Plus, we’ll put you in touch with freight brokers and shippers posting loads on your preferred lanes.
DAT uses data from real transactions to give you the most accurate average market rates for your lanes, so you’ll know how your pricing compares to what brokers and shippers are paying. We also provide information about each broker — including credit scores and reviews from other carriers — to help you make the best decision for your business. Last but not least, our TriHaul feature automatically generates triangular routing to minimize deadhead and improve your rate per mile.
