Load Board Pro
DAT One
Customized Search Results Customizable load board allows you to search for quality loads that fit your exact needs. Fewer sorting and filtering options, making it more difficult to find the loads you need.
Multiple Load Search High-value features at the lowest prices. No matter which subscription you pick, you can filter your search results, perform multiple searches at once, and hide any brokers or loads you’d prefer not to see. Standard features found in all Truckstop.com packages are only available in DAT’s most expensive.
Load Comparison Comparison view shows multiple loads side-by-side for quick decisions. DAT does not give you a way to select and compare certain loads side-by-side.
Rates Truckstop.com Rate Insights are calculated daily and takes into consideration the unique attributes of a specific load, allowing you to know the most up-to-date market value for any single load. DAT only shows you lane averages that could be up to 30 days old, meaning you could be losing out on negotiating power by using outdated rate data.
