What are the steps to haul a truckload?
The steps to haul truckloads are as follows: Once you find a load, contact the phone number listed and speak directly to the shipper or broker who posted the load. Ask them how much the load pays and when they expect to pay you.
Be prepared to answer questions such as:
- What is your MC# and/or USDOT#? You will need satisfactory DOT safety rating and MC authority.
- Do you have valid insurance? Usually you will need to supply insurance certificates showing cargo liability of $100,000 and liability of $1,000,000.
Agree on the terms, and then go pickup and haul the load. If you can’t wait 3-4 weeks to get paid, contact Thunder Funding and get immediate cash for your freight bills.
IMPORTANT: Our members book thousands of loads daily from our load board. Therefore it is very important that immediately after booking your load, you should post your truck available for a backhaul in the load drop-off city.
