I have a question for you guys with hoppers and dumps.
Do you guys actually use this load board for loads or is it like the DAT load board I use for my reefer trailer you know pretty much scrapping the bottom of the barrel so to speak. Hope I did not offend anyone

Honestly I use this board for when we are out of our home area. It is like everything else, you have to sift through a lot of sand to find that diamond you are looking for. It takes a few weeks until you figure out what companies to call and which companies you are wasting your time with.

I have found that I need these load boards when I get trucks out of my home areas and my normal trust worthy brokers do not have the freight I need.

I find the load boards are great phone books, :) It does give you a idea what going on out there and Like ED said its a big sand pile out there

I'm thinking that if you actually did load off these boards you wouldn't be able to afford the fee for the site.

90% of the time you are right, but I have made some really good contacts off of this board and it is that same 10% that are now in my roll a dex and get the call when I need something.
