How to Find the Best Load Board

A load board gives you instant access to potential business partners. For example, brokers using DAT post more than 82 million loads a year, and 63 million of them are posted to DAT first or nowhere else. 

DAT and Getloaded have combined two load board networks to create one massive "super-database" of loads and trucks, so no matter which DAT product you choose, you get access to the most loads in the trucking industry. Choose the product that best fits your business, depending on the size of your company and the kind of tools you'll need. Each product also gives you access to the DAT Load Board for Truckers mobile app for Android.

If you upgrade to $49.95/month, you also get to see the average rates paid on every lane for the past 90 days. That lets you know what the current market prices are before you call and negotiate. The upgrade also gives you broker credit scores and lets you see the average days-to-pay for each broker, all the tools you need when you're first starting out.

You can also read reviews of potential business partners by other companies who've worked with them, or you can write your own review.
