Does anyone know when BulkLoads will fix so only available loads are showing?

Does Bulkloads use an alogarithm for it's site or does everyone post their loads manually? I ask because it's extremely hard to know if a load is still available or already taken. Their is no mechanism for this information. Does anyone know when they will fix this? The board kind of reminds me of craigslist. Lots of stuff supposedly "available" but when you call about them or ask it suddenly isn't as it appears or is already gone or no response. We only belong for the forum and to brouse around and see how many brokers are on today and what they are shipping and where to see where the wind is blowing. But it would be helpful if the site was more accurate.

Does anyone else have this issue with the loadboard? Are they planning on fixing this?

Is it exaclty like craigslist and they expect the seller to keep their post updated?

Why can't they build it to run in real time? It would be simple to do and not very time consuming either.

Was just wondering.

I can't speak for everyone else, but we post all of our loads manually. I know that isn't fair to outside truckers that aren't a part of our regulars, but we really just use bulkloads to cover down on what we couldn't cover the prior week. We use it as a tool to contact carriers that are outside of our regular carriers, and a phone call will always tell you if the load is available anymore. I hope this was helpful.

Some leave them up to see how much interest there is so they can gauge supply and demand, others keep them up to make contact with new drivers, and grow their driver base.
