DAT Solutions has announced that Getloaded, a load board for smaller freight brokers and carriers, will be integrated into the DAT Network of load boards.
The combination with the rest of DAT’s load board network provides a single location for options aimed at van, refrigerated, flatbed and specialty freight and capacity. With the integration, Getloaded’s carrier customers will have access to four times as many loads per day while broker customers will be able to choose from 17 million available trucks posted annually to the DAT Network.
Getloaded and DAT - which includes DAT Power, DAT Express, DAT TruckersEdge and OOIDA's MembersEdge - are both owned by the same company, and have been operating with independent databases operated by DAT. DAT will migrate DAT and Getloaded customers to the combined database by year-end.
The move is the latest in a series of expansions at DAT. In August, the company relocated to a 55,000-square-foot facility in Portland. It also grew its technical and engineering staff, while expanding its Data Science department to address the needs of a changing industry.
"Since 1999, Getloaded has built its reputation as a marketplace for smaller brokers and carriers, especially those involved in moving flatbed and specialty freight," said Don Thornton, senior vice president at DAT. "We're excited to offer more choices and services to Getloaded customers and to allow all customers to post their loads and trucks in one efficient super-database."
