Direct Freight Services, one of today’s leading load boards now has a new app! The new app lets drivers search for loads from Direct Freight’s extensive loads database right from the comfort of their favorite mobile devices.
The database has more than 300,000 loads daily that can be filtered to weed out the ones you’re not interested in and return only relevant, potential loads. You can search and filter by a variety of preferences including origin, radius of origin, destination, ship date, full or partial size, trailer type (dry van, flatbed, reefer, step deck/single drop, double drop, van & vented, curtain van). The returned results can be sorted by age (newest), pay rate (highest), deadhead (shortest), trip length (longest), origin city (A-Z), origin state (A-Z), destination city (A-Z), destination state (A-Z), trailer type, load size, weight ship date, credit report, and company name. By customizing with your favorite filters and sorting your results, you can find just what you’re looking for with just a few taps.
Until now, Direct Freight was available on mobile devices by accessing the website but the new app streamlines everything to run more smoothly and efficiently on Apple and Android smartphones.
Each screen within the app is clear and easy to navigate. Posting your truck is simple and quick―simply input your origin, destination, trailer type, and the dates that you’re available and let the shippers find you. You can also include your vehicle’s length, width, height, maximum weight, and any special comments you’d like to make.
No more sifting through loads that are already taken. Direct Freight updates its loads in real time so you’ll always get current information.
When searching for loads, it’s difficult to know who to trust. Unfortunately, there are scammers, dishonest shippers, and ones who are resistant to pay. The new Direct Freight app has the same helpful credit score feature that is found on the Direct Freight website. You’ll know exactly who you’re working with, reducing the risk of getting scammed. Along with detailed information on freight brokers and shipping companies, you can also see how long each shipper takes to pay so you can avoid the ones that are slow to pay if you choose. Reviews are also available. Once you’ve found a shipper that you’d like to contact, there’s no looking up numbers and trying to remember them, just call them directly from the app!
Owner/operators and carriers who rely on Direct Freight to find loads or post trucks know what an invaluable tool it is for the success of their business. The app is available on the App Store and Google Play and can be used with an existing Direct Freight account. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up in the app or on the website.
