    I like how they also raised the price recently too. Like it wasn't overpriced to begin with.

    Hoping it’s not one of those cyber attacks. Normally it’s up by now. It’s getting ridiculous how often it’s down though.

    Good reason to develop a mailing list. We sent out emails to brokers for loads, and also to carriers about our loads needing brokered. It’s funny how when tech goes down you start falling back to older ways. Or God forbid making some calls LOL

    Yeah I need to open myself to more brokers. I have 3 that I normally do business with depending on areas I am at. In Winchester VA and I dont come over in this area hardly at all. Kind of screwed myself I guess with DAT down.

    What kind of trailer and where you looking to get? How long you had your authority?

    I wouldn’t beat yourself up, back when I started the board was so slow that you have to gather emails and knock on doors to survive. As soon as a load was posted you would call as fast as possible and it was gone already. It’s been different for a pretty long time now but it’ll get back again at some point.

    Btw pro tip: Make an account at truck stop until DAT is back going, or just keep it. Cheap insurance. ;)
