The Disadvantages of a Traditional Load Board

Historically, cargo van and sprinter van owners had to go out find loads on hot shot load boards. These places have become too competitive with drivers who are inexperienced and bid down the loads effecting the whole marketplace. With GoShare the loads come to you mainly from national retailers and you can decide which loads to accept or reject. You’ll know how much you will make, how far you need to go, and how long it will take in advance.  

In addition, load boards typically charge an expensive monthly fee to use. If you choose to go the cost savings route, you can expect free load boards to have limited information with lesser LTL loads available. Fraud and scams are more rampant as well, with many unreliable freight brokers and shippers who prey on the unwary. 

And, it’s common for completed jobs on expedited van and truckloads to have a slow payout, taking up to several months before you touch your hard-earned money. If you run your own hot shot trucking business, this can be especially painful as cash flow is disrupted and your fleet’s fuel and maintenance costs pile up.
