The concept of Freight Load Board and how to use it

By Manoj Kumar Singh Subscribe to RSS | June 28th 2012 | Views:

Truckers who have their own trucks face a huge monetary loss if they don’t get freight loads, their trucks remain idle (i.e. not in a running condition) or driven empty.

So it is vital to locate a freight load close to the last load dropped location. Online load board makes it easier to find out freight loads and freight capacity for truckers/carriers and make the maximum use of their haulage efficiency. Here all the loads are updated on day by day basis.

Online freight load boards are the best places to match loads for truckers and also facilitate truckers to organize each job directly with the company. Companies that are in search for trucking services also try to find load boards with quick turnover.

Now-a-days, a trucker/carrier can access freight load boards through the Internet. All the load boards are exhibited on truckstop monitors. Load boards are also termed as Load Matching Sites, Freight Boards, and Freight Matching Services.

Truckers have to pay minimum monthly charge that may differ from $30 to $45 to get access on the load board for obtaining loads on 24 hours a day. Active online load boards don’t allow load requests for more than 24 hours. Before registering and disbursing a monthly fee to load boards, a trucker/carrier should make sure that the load board is providing free demos facilities to find loads easily.

User accounts are activated once the payments are received. After that users can get online access to a safe site and get the ability for observing accessible freight offers and listing their capacity. All ground carriers should contain a MC and/or DOT registration. Any infringement may lead to the cancellation of account and the trucker/carrier being removed from the site.

At the time of finding freight loads, truckers must always search for fast turnover in job postings obtainable in the load board.

In few cases load boards also perform in reverse, facilitating the posting of accessible trucks to be searched by freight load brokers to move their available loads. Through a reverse load board a trucker/carrier can post their availability and trucking capabilities, allowing companies and brokers to easily discover them.

Some times in a freight load board there may exist some posting software to make the process of posting to load boards and other load matching and freight matching services more efficient. With posting software, the user will be able to post more loads to load board in fewer time.
