    Just more listings. Smaller brokers post there before some of the others. Nothing to really get excited about.

    If you had to choose just one board for RGN work, which would it be?

    Get them both and figure it out. Why leave that decision to a total stranger? I know a guy pulling an RGN who will say ITS but it's a big country and maybe you dont live where he does so the opposite is true.

    I agree with Rollin Coal. To really understand the difference,.. you need to see how both are set up and with who and how posts are listed. For the most part,.. EVERYONE posts every where. But for open deck,.. if I had to choose one or the other,.. it would be ITS.

    Carrier I was leased to had both account,.. thats what I based my personal opinion on. When searching each,.. that was my observation.

    For RGN work,.. that has to be tough trying to rely on load boards. Some expensive equipment with expensive costs.

    Good luck out there.

    You should definitely go for whichever one I'm not on. Unfortunately I'm on both. :D

    I too am thinking about this, i get calls from ITS reps saying its better and have seen multiple forums saying ITS is better for open deck while DAT is more van/reefer. I do pretty good with DAT pro which lets me see the average so i dont get completely ######, but the only thing i cant get over is ITS is 149 for their top tier offering the same thing while DAT is only 89 with their "10% off discount for life". That's 600 a yr difference! Anyone think it's worth it going over to ITS?

    Looking into this today. It pays for itself many times over is a great statement for a load board. It’s been a while since this post, I’m curious are they still treating you good?

    You can always try it out for a month.Worst case you are out of pocket at most $149 and that’s Pro,which can be negotiated down when you call them.But I think you will get your money’s worth.
