Load Board Definition
What is a load board?
An Internet load board is an information exchange for companies in the trucking industry. A load board is generally set up for shippers, brokers, 3PLs, and other tranportation intermediaries to post loads that need to be moved. Carriers, owner-operators, and trucking companies search on load boards to find loads when looking for backhauls or to fill otherwise idles trucks. The load board serves to provide increased efficiency for almost every type of company in the industry. A few of the better known load boards are 123LoadBoard.com, DirectFreight.com, and Getloaded.com.
In some cases load boards also work in reverse, allowing the posting of available trucks that can be searched by freight load brokers who have loads ready to move. Load boards today are accessed via the Internet and displayed on truckstop monitors. Load boards are also known as Load Matching Sites, Freight Boards, and Freight Matching Services.
