You only book it if suits you.

Bulk loads are large freight loads hauled by trucks and trailers designed and built to carry a large amount of liquid or dry freight in bulk. Bulk loads are typically unloaded using a conveyor, walking floors, and walking hopper bottoms. Bulk load trailers are also referred to as hopper bottom and pneumatic trailers. There are many different kinds of bulk loads. Most often, they consist of commodities that come in bulk. Some good examples are agricultural commodities, such as animal feed ingredients, fertilizer aggregates, grain, etc.

At the simplest level, a load board speeds up the time it takes to find loads. Think about the time it would take to manually find loads that specifically match all your need and requirements. The type of equipment you specialize in, the type of loads you prefer to haul, and geographical location you operate in, the lanes you prefer, and the rates you need to earn to make it financially worthwhile—a load board performs a filtered, detailed search to match drivers with the best loads out there. It saves you a massive amount of time, includes features that help you make decisions, and gets you on the road toward making money much faster than going about the process manually. The Truckstop Load Board serves up all the quality loads you need in one single source.

Using the Truckstop Load Board, you can search by equipment type, origin, and destination. Use the technology device you prefer, whether it’s a desktop computer or our Truckstop Go™ mobile app, our filter and search capabilities help you find the perfect bulk load match in your own neck of the woods.
