Hello, Can you give recommendation on a good Load board to use when looking for freight? I am new at this industry and I have seen load boards with very cheap rates, I understand the rate averages and what drives a rate, I just dont want to be taken advantage.

Sorry Jorge.

This site is dedicated to the entry of new drivers into the industry.

Since we don't have owner-ops on the board, or no one who actually uses a load board - we would be unable to make a recommendation for you.

A free loadboard is Truck Loads by Truckers Path. It has some decent loads on it.

I suppose there are a couple - but this is not the place we make load board recommendations...

How can you be "taken advantage of" if you're booking your own freight?

He can’t be taken advantage of, if he is booking his own freight. I think he is hoping to find a load board with the magic golden goose egg. Too bad, no matter what load board gets used, freight rates are down right now.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
