Filtering your search

From the Search filters pane, you can apply filters to narrow your load board results. In this example, we are looking for a Pickup location from Acampo, CA and a Destination of Modesto, CA. The Radius slider can be adjusted to find loads within a specified distance of either the Pickup or Destination.

💡 If you are having trouble finding loads nearby your Pickup or Destination, try increasing the Radius slider.

Lastly, you can adjust the Trailer length, Price, Rate per mile, Weight, and Distance with the horizontal sliders. Once you are satisfied with your filter, select the Filter to X results button to return to the Book tab.

From our search results, we can see there is a load priced at $6.20 / mi from Acampo, CA to Modesto, CA. When you select the load, you can either tap Submit Bid to place a bid for the load, or tap Book Now to immediately book the load. Please note that you can only submit or book a load for a broker that you have already connected to TruckSmarter. To learn more about this, please see Connecting a Broker Account.
