PORTLAND, Ore., April 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DAT Solutions and LoadStop have joined forces to integrate key products and features from DAT into the California-based startup that automates truck dispatching and other common back-office tasks.
Integrating key features from the world’s largest freight marketplace and information provider into LoadStop will increase efficiency and results for their customers.
DAT products and features will work seamlessly with LoadStop’s Smart Dispatcher software that automates the load matching process by searching loads from multiple boards and identifying the ones that best meet the needs of drivers and fleets. The DAT features now on LoadStop are:
- DAT Load Boards – Provides DAT and LoadStop Smart Dispatcher customers with access to the largest on-demand freight marketplace in North America.
- DAT RateView – Grants current and historical freight rates on more than 65,000 lanes.
LoadStop’s Smart Dispatcher manages and posts truck capacity, keeps track of market conditions, plans schedules, and continuously searches for loads with the best rates. It keeps track of drivers’ schedules and preferences, and makes analytical decisions to reduce empty miles and increase fleet utilization.
LoadStop Co-Founder and COO Farhan Rafique comments: “With LoadStop, carriers can automate 80 to 90 percent of their dispatch operations. Integrating with DAT now gives our customers access to the biggest load board in the industry.”
