The concept of Freight Load Board and how to use it
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.
