Freight Load Definition
A freight load is also known as a freight shipment and measures anywhere between 150 to 20000 pounds. All the same, a freight load requires an entire shipping truck as it usually occupies a full trailer or container.
What is a Load Board?
Shipping is one of the most integral parts of our country's economic foundation. Also known as a freight board, a load board is an online platform where shippers, truck owners, and operators, and freight brokers advertise for the freight shipping business.
Other Ways Through Which Truckers Find Loads
Like other businesses, truck owners have to advertise their services to keep their businesses going. Here are the four common methods through which truckers use to find loads and keep their businesses going:
Connecting Directly with Shippers
Here is the most common and ideal scenario. The Truckers find the shippers, connect, negotiate and sell their services to the shippers and even form long-term business relationships with them. While this might be a hectic and time-consuming process, shippers with consistent freight loads can guarantee you a long-term hauling contract. However, in most cases, these contracts are attained through a bidding process where such large companies as Heavy Equipment Transport get the deal. Heavy Equipment Transport has formed strong partnerships with various shippers who trust them to transport clients' goods timely and safely.
Small carriers and truck owners who are yet to establish a relationship with the shippers benefit the most from freight brokers. They are the bridge between shippers looking for trucking services and the truck owners providing these services. They give small freight companies direct access to shippers without having to undergo the vetting process. By forming great relationships with freight brokers, freight carriers are guaranteed consistent and reliable load supply from various shippers. All the same, trucking services are required to pay a small commission to their brokers.
