What is a Freight Load Board?
Freight Load Boards are used in the trucking industry primarily by owner-operators or large fleet dispatchers to search loads and check out spot markets.
The fastest-growing Freight Load Boards are app-enabled and are the dominant form of finding loads in today’s trucking industry. Gone are the days where you had to rely on the broker to tell you what loads are available.
You can now see weekly load averages on some load boards and even determine what type of loads are paying the most in different markets. The Load bords of today give the user much more information and a technological edge against those that don’t use these features.
Something that can not be overstated enough is the broker rating feature, enabling other users the ability to find out what brokers you should stay away from and what brokers keep their word.
