What types of loads are posted on LoadHound?
Most of the loads are for full sized 48 or 53 foot trailers. There are also partial or LTL (less than truckload) loads ranging from one pallet to 35,000 pounds.
How current are the load postings?
Our load postings are updated constantly, bringing you the freshest loads around. Old loads are automatically deleted after the scheduled pickup date.
How do I get paid?
You must make payment arrangements with the broker or shipper. Some loads are paid on a per mile rate while others are paid by a flat rate.
Do I need my authority to use LoadHound?
No, but brokers or shippers require the carriers they use to have an MC (Motor Carrier) number and/or DOT (Department of Transportation) number as required by law.
Load Matching Alerts
Will LoadHound notify when new loads meet my search criteria?
Yes, you can tell LoadHound to save your search and keep looking. LoadHound sends you alerts when new matching loads are posted. LoadHound is smart about it, too. You won't get alerts on loads you've already seen that are removed and reposted - only loads that are actually new will trigger alerts.
How does LoadHound notify me of new matches?
LoadHound can send alerts via email for as long as the saved search is still active. You can also get alerts via text message for the first hour after you save your search. LoadHound works hard to track down the loads you need.
What is a credit score?
Credit scores are provided by Ansonia Credit Data and are based on a company's number of years in business, credit references, credit history, and number of days to pay. Scores are updated monthly. The scores are:
|88-100||Low Credit Risk|
|70 - 87||Moderate Credit Risk|
|69 and below||High Credit Risk|
