    Definitely both from a broker's standpoint.

    Depending on the region or freight, I get more hits with one versus the other. So, best to cover all your bases, and go from there.

    I only use ITS. Tried DAT for a while but found little there that was a fit for us. Try them both for a while and see what works.

    Is this a new "dispatch service" asking what boards to find freight on?

    No just curious to see what load-board is preferred. We currently post load only on ITS and considering DAT

    The same brokers are on both, so getting a call back is not a function of ITS vs DAT.

    thank you. are there any other boards you'd suggest I post on as well? or are those two the only big players?

    My perception is that these are the two with the most action. Others may have a different view, depending on the freight they are looking for and the lanes they run. There are specialized freight boards as well like bulkloads.com if you're running a hopper or dump.
     
    tthephas Thanks this.
