Free vs Paid Load Boards

 

Free Load Board - www.trulos.com

Companies like Trulos Transportation, www.trulos.com, offer free load boards for users. The biggest benefit is that they are free and usually have loads posted on them from sources that you don't find in paid load boards. They are a great resource for drivers and trucking companies who need to find freight and may not have access to a paid load board. It is also a good starting place for new trucking companies that want to see what freight is available.

Trulos Transportation is our favorite service because there is no sign up to view loads. Simply go to the page and you get to see the loads and find the call the number. Most of the others make you sign up to view the freight.

Do paid load boards have better Freight - Not necessarily. They may have more freight but the cost of freight is determined by the carriers, origin and destination. Our experience is that the free load board have both high and low paying loads available but the paid load boards just have more freight available. Both types of load board service are good ways to get your truck moving.
