Integrating DAT and Truckstop for truckload shipments
Load board bidding 3x faster
Shippers, brokers, and carriers are well-versed in booking truckload shipment via a load board. These online marketplaces make it easy for shippers and brokers to find vans, reefers, flatbeds, and more and filter based on availability, insurance, and risk to find the right carrier for the load. Owner-operators are also able to compete with large carriers for loads with increased access and visibility to shippers and brokers.
DAT and Truckstop are leaders in the load board space, and they are optimized to level the playing field to allow for fair deals for all participants. While this neutral marketplace for shippers, brokers, and carriers to work out deals, it keeps parties at a distance from each other.
In some cases, a shipper and a carrier or owner-operator build a relationship and prefer to do business with each other instead of constantly shopping around. These long-term relationships help provide stability and consistency to businesses, but the parties may not have the resources to facilitate a direct quoting and booking integration. Instead, they continue to use load boards and tolerate the delay involved in submitting RFPs and waiting for bids, which is extended by the visibility of the load to additional parties hoping to get the deal.
