Want to know how to earn extra money making that trip back home? Are you considering going independent and being your own boss, but not sure how to make ends meet? Maybe you’re just tired of making hours of phone calls trying to track down someone with an extra load to haul so you don’t deadhead-it back home.
Load boards are your answer to extra cash in your pocket, and an extra load on your rig.
Today’s shippers and brokers are in the same position as you – they need someone to move their freight and they need it done fast. To answer this need, companies stepped up and using today’s technology have created "load boards" – searchable, safe, online databases where truckers can post available trucks and shippers or brokers can post available loads. Load boards are the medium for you to find your next haul – will you answer the call?
Load boards post availabilities for all types of trucks and trip lengths. Whether you’re TL or LTL, running a reefer, containerized freight, dry box, or flatbed – load boards have the haul you’re looking for while you’re waiting for backhaul.
But not all load boards are created equal, and there are boards out there who aren’t looking out for truckers or brokers. The best of the load boards usually come with a membership fee that gets you all sorts of perks: unlimited searching for freight, unlimited posting of your truck for haul jobs, mileage trackers, weather and traffic reporting, backhaul links, message boards, and a host of others, including probably the most important – company credit scores. Before you sign up to haul a load you want to know if the company has a shady past and whether they pay on time or not.
Free load boards and for-cost load boards don’t offer these services and many will price gouge when it comes time to make the deal.
