DAT announced a series of product launches designed to accelerate freight matching transactions on the company’s network, with a new DAT load board app for truckers and DAT OnBoard, both enabling carriers to expedite the most important steps of the freight matching process in their cab on any device.

A native mobile app, DAT Load Board for Truckers enables unlimited access to DAT spot market loads, which in October reached the highest freight levels in 2016 other than June.

The DAT Load Board App also features quick scrolling of up to 500 loads at a time, with pick-up times and dock hours, and 90-day freight rates, a rolling average based on actual transactions between load providers and carriers. Users also can save matches to call on and develop future business.

The DAT Load Board for Truckers app is now available for Android phones, with iOS soon to follow, and subsequent monthly releases. This app complements all paid subscriptions to DAT’s Power and Express load board products, as well as DAT TruckersEdge and MembersEdge, which is offered through the Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA). Any trucker with paid subscriptions to any of those products can download DAT Load Board for Truckers for free on Google Play.

By eliminating paper, DAT OnBoard accelerates a process carriers have long found frustrating, and expedites brokers’ ability to add capacity. DAT OnBoard lets carriers use their phones, tablets or laptops to fill out a complete profile on a broker-branded website. DAT OnBoard also lets carriers use e-signatures for contracts. More than 50,000 carriers are already in the DAT OnBoard service.

The final piece of DAT’s efforts to accelerate freight matching includes an iOS upgrade to DAT Trucker, a free app providing limited DAT load board access based on current geographical location. It also provides information on services such as truck stop locations, fuel prices, rest areas, truck-friendly hotels, truck washes and CAT scales.
