DAT Freight & Analytics announced its new DAT One app. Designed to help truckers find profitable loads and run their businesses while on the road, the new app includes all of the features of DAT’s Load Board for Truckers, with more added tools.
The DAT One app gives carriers access to DAT’s Load Board, where about 1.4 million loads are posted daily. It features the load-finding capabilities of DAT’s Load Board for Truckers mobile app, but on a unified platform with integrated load tracking, improved search filtering, access to rate data, interactive mapping tools for profitable trip planning, and the ability to post trucks with rates for better-targeted inquiries from brokers.
The DAT One app has been designed to give carriers the information they need and address the needs of small trucking business to:
- Find the best loads first, no matter where they are.
- Find truck stops, service stations, and rest areas.
- Save fuel costs with the fuel highlight feature.
- Post their truck with rates and understand market data to gain negotiating power and have more productive phone calls with brokers.
- See credit scores and company reviews for brokers.
- Get paid within 24 hours with factoring options.
“With the DAT One app, I am free to leave the truck and decide to take a load from a broker without ever needing to use my laptop," said owner-operator Chad Boblett of Boblett Brothers LLC, founder of the Rate Per Mile Masters group on Facebook, in a statement. "Most of my loads are from brokers calling me, and the DAT One app has allowed me to efficiently do my research on the load and broker as the calls come in. In addition, I have to have the DAT Directory, mapping tools and lane rate information to negotiate with brokers. The new DAT One app now does all of that in a quick and easy way.”
“Drivers told us they were constantly switching between as many as 15 mobile apps to do all the things they need to do on the road," added Claude Pumilia, DAT president and CEO. "We are solving app fatigue for carriers by giving them one unified app to do everything they do, whether it’s finding and booking a load, getting the best deal on fuel or finding the services they need on the way.”
