Loads View

The loads section displays all live loads that have been posted on the Exchange.  Currently we do not have a map view of loads – this is coming very soon

The map does not currently auto refresh, so to get the most recent live view of load postings, click on the 'Refresh' button located on the right side of the title bar.  The time the list was last updated is located on the left side of the title bar.

Blue Tabs - the blue tabs located at the top left of the listings allows you to quickly display the various load types

All Live – this is the default tab and displays all live loads regardless of which load type they were posted as

On Demand – this tab will display the majority of loads as they are 'On Demand' and generally need urgent attention

Regular Load – this tab will only display re-occurring load postings i.e. a load that has been specifically posted as a regular load that re-occurs frequently

Daily Hire – this tab will only display loads that have been posted as 'Daily Hire'.  A Daily Hire load is where the poster is looking to hire a van and driver for a time period rather than for a specific load

Including Sold – check this option if you wish to display loads that have already been booked or sold.  This option works with all blue tabs

 

Items per page – select how many results you want to display per page (the more results per page you select, the slower the search will be performed)
