Load Board With Rates
It’s one thing to find loads to haul. It’s quite another to get loads that pay the best rates. That’s where the Truckstop.com Load Board with rates tools comes in.
When shopping for a load board, make sure you look for one that goes the extra mile to help you earn more money per mile. All the loads in the world won’t help you get ahead unless you are making enough money to cover your expenses—and then some—so you can be profitable and make a solid living. The highest earners among carriers and owner-operators are the ones that have it “dialed in” when it comes to negotiating and getting the highest possible rates on every single load they haul.
The Truckstop.com Load Board with built-in rates tools dials it in for you, with insight into the spot market at any given moment. Armed with a thorough grasp of trending rates relevant to the loads you want, you can come to the negotiation table with accurate rates data. This will go far in helping you get paid a fair rate every time.
It’s decision tools like these that set the Truckstop.com Load Board with rates apart from other load boards out there.
- See truck-to-load ratio in the lanes you prefer.
- Access truck activity by origin and destination.
- Gauge your negotiation strength on any given load.
Knowledge is power. Knowledge of rates is negotiation power.
The negotiation process is where deals are made, and relationships are formed. While the vast majority of brokers out there are fair-minded and reputable, you can protect yourself from being taken advantage of by knowing at least as much about what’s going on in the spot market in a given area or with specific equipment demands as the broker does.
Brokers are trying to make money just like you are, and margins can vary from load to load. Sometimes brokers have higher margins to work with and sometimes the squeeze is tighter. If a broker’s on the up-and-up, some give-and-take from load to load will go a long way toward creating a relationship built on transparency and one in which both parties have to compromise from time to time to get a rate that satisfies everyone.
It’s up to you to find out what’s fair and decide what you’re willing to work for. The Truckstop.com load board with rates gives you quick and easy access to valid, real-life baseline rates, so you can be confident you’re making decisions that make financial sense and allow you the wiggle room to grow your business.

When it comes to getting good rates, the more you know, the better. Data drives the freight industry, especially when it comes to rates. Knowing accurate rate trends, truck demand and activity in certain lanes areas of the country, and other pertinent details will show the broker you know the business and improve your chances of getting a higher rate. You may not always get top dollar, but you will not get taken advantage of. And if you show the broker you’re willing to give and take, that broker may look to you time and again to move loads at decent rates. Access to accurate and current data will arm you with the info you need to go head-to-head at any negotiation table and come out with a win for all parties.
