An owner operator’s worst nightmare is the return of an empty truck when he runs his truck to carry load from one location to another. This often nightmarish scenario of trucks carrying empty load across a span of distance is termed as dead head miles. Since the trucker or the owner operator has absolutely more often than not, no clue as to whether the area he or she is sending his truck to deliver the load has some to carry back to base. To remedy this serious problem, they’ve introduced load boards and it has become quite popular among truckers or owner operators.
Advancements in tech allow drivers to now be able to access information about potential load to carry in the surrounding area with use of online load boards. All they need to do is make sure to mark their trucks available for loading on apps that cater to online load boards. This also allows independent truck drivers the opportunity to load their empty trucks without a governing operating body even when their trucks are on standby.
Online load boards not only help truck drivers and their owner operators but also the shippers and freight brokers who are in constant need of trucks to carry their loads. This method makes for the efficient filling out of jopurney details and trailer types that shippers and freight brokers require for their loads to be carried. Online load boards serves as a digital meeting place for truck drivers and shippers minus the hassle of actually meeting in person.
Now to the most important question: how does one access efficient load boards?
