    Since Truckstop's "It's Dispatch" it's now Truckstop scraps board. First It's Dispatch takes all the money loads and gives them to their biggest customers down. Then the "pro's" get to pick through the leftovers, then the bare bones gets thrown to the rest of us. Corporate greed, the more you pay them, the more they allow you to earn. Is DAT running a Dispatch service? I'm thinking of switching back to DAT if not.

    Just switch already. DAT and ITS subscriptions are peanuts compared to what a truck makes every month. If you don't like what you see, then switch back next month.

    Also Truckstop allows you brokers to relist the same loads again and again. Once I complained about a load listed 155 times consecutively. I had the board showing me 50 loads at a time. It was over 3 pages.

    DAT does the same thing.

    Then call them and ask.

    I'm asking the Truckers Report forum. If anyone knows. If you don't know don't answer the question. It's okay if you don't know everything.

    As far as I know DAT is not involved with any kind of dispatching. I’ve been using them for the last 5 years and have never seen anything about it.

    Thank you Oscar!! I checked DAT's website and I see nothing about DAT running a dispatch service. I left DAT a couple years ago. I switched to Truckstop. I didn't find Truckstop better. Now that Truckstop is running a dispatch service, it's clearly a conflict of interest. I'm a single truck owner/carrier. If I were to pay-up, and get "It's Dispatch" service, I'm sure the bigger the carrier, the more they pay Truckstop, the better the advantage. It's past time to switch back to DAT.
    The only reason I thought of switching is because Truckstop keeps sending me messages, stating I'm missing out on the big money, because I not getting their It's Dispatch service! Clearly they think I'm stupid. Because of their greed, I hope they fail. Everyone should use DAT!

    I’ve been using DAT load boards for a while now and It’s my go to. I find good loads and was able to meet Nate from Dapa Logistics on that site. I would highly recommend both the DAT and Dapa Logistics to book loads.
