Comments and Reviews from users:

Derrick Earp: “It doesn't have enough filters or the price for the loads; it needs a similar search and filter system to the original DAT load board. We need to be able to filter by trailer length and load weight, and it needs to have more options for equipment type. I'm running a 26' 12-ton tilt deck. I don't want to waste my time looking at loads that I can't touch.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Benson Kagotho: “DAT nowadays is just filled with double brokered load-outs. I've managed to use DAT twice or thrice for the last 2yrs. Low paying loads flood the Loadboard since they duplicate them about a 100 times for the same load and I wish there was a filter option to block out; brokers/per mileage amount/ etc, since these loads are commonly from the same brokers. I'm giving it about 2-3 months, if no change I'll move on to something else.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “I use this app as a backup to my paid board. I just wish all brokers would start realizing that the cost of running our trucks have gone up since all the tariffs are taking place so my rates must increase as well. (ex.) my cooper tires have gone up $60.00 each this year. That's a good chunk of change to keep losing when you have brokers trying to keep ALL the revenue in the run. BROKERS YOU HAVE TO REALIZE, YOUR FREIGHT WON'T MOVE UNLESS WE MOVE IT FOR YOU. JUST BE FAIR.SAY NO TO CHEAP FREIGHT” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “this app is on just about every job or trip planning I plan!! I check fuel stop at the most convenient to me. I drive trucks so fuel prices are a factor. I started picking loads from real brokers. they can do better. weights station are a concern so cat scale locations are a major plus. So are rest area a real trucks stops. needs a big update on current locations on this department. keep up the great job. I love it thank you.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “They hide the load information and don't tell us enough about it. Update: just see for yourself every one by taking a look at any of the loads offered and can you tell me what the item is gojng to be that your picking up (one of the most important things). Other app at least they put pictures, item lists, etc...” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “The app used to show the "Average Line Haul Rate", it no longer does. Now it only shows the "Average Rate Per Mile". Now you have to get the calculator out and multiply the mileage by the rate per mile to get total, which is a big inconvenience when you look at hundreds of loads. Probably going to cancel my subscription and purchase DAT Loadboard if the don't put the Average Linehaul Rate back in the app.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

amarjit singh: “Great app but brokers are doing same thing here as they do at dat loadbord, always wrong pickup and delivery time. They need to update application with correct pickup and delivery appointment time required. So broker cannot post load without correct information. Thank you” – 4/5 in Play Store

Crystal Crary: “Was sent a message saying I could skip the waitlist and try the app with the link. Followed the link, downloaded and it says I need an invite code. Messaged back to "Dan" that sent the message to me but no response. A few hours later someone called. They had the invite issued to our main toll free number and had to activate my cell phone. So far seems a good app. Could use picking destination states or zones so you could filter the amount of loads better.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “everything is great except you need to make it mandatory that shippers/brokers put in dimensional stats for all loads. I understand the need to call for rate, but the load is the load.... making me call to see if FTL means 40', 48' or 53' is a waste of time.” – 4/5 in Play Store
