As a motor carrier, you need to make sure that your vehicles are coming under the watchful gaze of freight brokers and shippers who are looking for drivers to pick up their freight and deliver their loads. Even if you have a steady stream of regular clients, an online load board can expose you to different freight brokers and shippers, thereby opening the door to fresh business that can take your company to new heights.
Besides being able to reach more people, there are a number of other benefits of using a free load board, including the following:
Access to credit reports
Not all freight brokers and shippers are timely payers. As a motor carrier, you need to make sure that you are doing business with creditworthy customers. Some online load boards, such as FreeFreightSearch.com, will give you access to 10,000+ freight broker credit reports. This value added service can make a difference to your bottom line and your business as you can protect yourself against accepting loads from questionable customers. Instead of paying a credit checking agency or having to do online research on every potential customer yourself, you can simply view a freight broker’s credit report online at FreeFreightSearch.com to see the broker’s payment history.
Technologically advanced online load boards feature additional functionalities that can help you streamline your business processes. One of these functionalities is online alerts. On some load boards, you can set up an alert that lets you receive real-time alerts when a load is posted that matches your truck and location, which can take a lot of the administration involved with searching for loads off your shoulders.
Motor carriers choose to register on FreeFreightSearch.com (FFS), the world’s largest 100% FREE load board, for a number of reasons, but the most important is consistently finding loads that keep your truck on the road.
