Pros
I love the ability to base my pricing on the market average. See analytics and leverage that knowledge to be more competitive in the market place.
Love the interface and ease of accessibility. Love that rate view price averages are shown during the load posting.
I like the ease of booking loads. I enjoy looking for loads because it's easy.
Cons
Let some fake brokers to use it and we can be contacting fraudulent brokers.
Just dislike seeing competitors loads. Meaning they would be able to see mine.
Trip milage always error and never calculated with truck map, make the market volume decrees.

Great Load Board

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Making load searches is easy and more lucrative than other boards I use. I really like that when there aren't many options available within the specific lane you're searching that it searches out further to try and offer more options for you. I also like that I can search within a 400+ miles radius of any location. I love the directory that allows you to read reviews on brokers/carriers.

Cons

I wish I could have multiple load searches open at once, I wish I didn't have to pay extra to have more than one user, & I wish the board would refresh itself automatically every minute or so to stay current.

DAT Board Review

Reviewed 9 months ago

Very easy to use. Customer service is great!

Pros

Very user friendly. Not many under scored brokers on the platform.

Cons

Hard to get loads because of the competition. Haven't been able to acquire a dedicated lane or contract from DAT board so far

NEW DAT ONE

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

I like the old Dat power load board , I have been using Dat Solutions since 1995 .

Cons

I do not like the new updated Dat one load , for many reasons , I have been speaking with a-lot of people that are in this industry and have been using DAT Solutions for almost as long as I have been since 1996 . There is nothing good at all about this new updated board , first and foremost it is not user friendly ( they say that is is user freindly ) so many thing that I do not like at all and would like to know why change anything that works ( And we like it to be simple ) !!! it hurts my eyes when using this ! I also hope that someone else come out with a load better load board to put Dat out business . Dat solutions controls the load board market and not only that even your might notice that they also have a lot of brokers that posted load that are not good !!!

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback. We recognize that switching to a new load board is not easy. We are continually working on simplifying our customer's experience. Some of the features look differently on the new site due to multiple enhancements made to improve the search and post tools. We'd love to get in contact with you to offer assistance. Can you reach out to our technical support at 800.547.5417 or via email at customer.support@dat.com?
