CORRECTING and REPLACING – DAT Truckload Freight Marketplace Expands Services with Load Visibility Platform

World News: . []

PORTLAND, Ore., April 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a release issued under the same headline yesterday by DAT Solutions please note that in the second paragraph of the release, the rates database in actual transactions should be "$45 billion", not "$45 million" as previously stated. The corrected release follows:

DAT Solutions announced today the introduction of DAT OnTime, a  application that enables freight brokers and third party logistics (3PL) professionals to monitor the location and status of their managed freight using an app installed on the driver’s smartphone. 

“This is a natural extension to the  services DAT has been providing for 40 years,” said Claude Pumilia, President of DAT.  “As the largest and most trusted load board network, DAT hosts more than 179 million annual freight matches and a rates database of $45 billion in actual transactions,” he continued.

“Through the years, DAT has been a trusted provider of logistics solutions, with a reputation for neutrality, data integrity, and information security, as well as access to the capacity represented by the more than 1.3 million trucks in our network,” Pumilia added.

DAT OnTime is designed specifically for freight intermediaries, who are responsible for managing the intricacies of thousands of freight deliveries, but do not have technology on board the trucks themselves.

“For years, when a freight broker wanted to get a delivery status, the only option was to call the driver,” said Neerav Shah, VP Products at DAT. “Our load tracking service provides real-time shipment visibility, so potential service failures can be easily identified and managed proactively.”

Unlike some load tracking solutions DAT OnTime can be deployed quickly and easily, with no need for professional installation.  DAT OnTime is immediately available at an affordable subscription price, starting as low as $1.00 per load, without long-term contracts or set up fees.

DAT operates the largest truckload freight marketplace in North America. Transportation brokers, carriers, news organizations and industry analysts rely on DAT for market trends and data insights derived from 179 million freight matches in 2017, and a database of $45 billion of market transactions. Related services include a comprehensive directory of companies with business history, credit, safety, insurance and company reviews; broker transportation management software; authority, fuel tax, mileage, vehicle licensing, and registration services; and carrier onboarding.

Founded in 1978, DAT Solutions LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Roper Technologies (NYSE:ROP), a diversified technology company and constituent of the S&P 500, Fortune 1000, and Russell 1000 indices.
