DAT has unveiled a program that shows carriers' shipper-paid market rates and spot rates throughout the United States and Canada.
DAT RateView will also suggest backhauls and tri-hauls to carriers based on lanes on which they will receive the highest rate.
“Instead of cheap freight, backhauls become important revenue generating opportunities that also bring trucks and drivers home,” said DAT’s Don Thornton said in a statement.
In addition to comparing the rates they are paid versus market rates, carriers can also browse through a 13-month rate history. - Jon Ross
