The Deepest Data: Our DAT RateView database is built on more than $110 billion in freight payments on more than 65,000 lanes, with contributions from hundreds of companies. No one else has a pricing index as deep as that – and it's not even close.
The Most Up-to-Date: Contributing companies send us their data as soon as there's a rate agreement. That info is sent to us directly through their transportation management system, or sent via FTP. Any accessorials charges are updated automatically.
The Most Precise: Our database links rates to 149 distinct key market areas in North America, and users can search that database with parameters as specific as the first 3 digits of the zip code. Other freight rates databases collect information based on a geographic radius, which creates an inaccurate picture of the rates in that market.
The Best Practices: Our rates only include REAL transactions – no bids or asking prices, which can skew the data. We also don't rely on data from factoring companies, which often comes from companies that may have been more willing to accept lower rates. Our proprietary processes also eliminate outliers, so that users only get a true market average for a lane, though they can still see the range of prices paid on that lane.
