Loadsmart is the future of loadboards, where the load comes to you. We send live loads, personalized to your preferences and location, straight to your inbox, where you can accept it in one click.
Loadsmart is completely free for all carriers.
The loads find you! We send you live loads based on your preferences, called “Live Jobs.” We call them live jobs because they are displayed in real-time as soon as we receive a shipment order, and you can accept the job instantly in just one click. All relevant loads are displayed in the Live Job boxes on the right side of your fleet screen. We also send out emails to alert you to any Live Jobs in your area.
Don’t worry! If no Live Jobs appear on your screen and you don’t receive any email alerts, it means we don’t have any Live Jobs available at the moment. As soon as we have live jobs available for you, we’ll send them your way.
You don’t need to post your trucks. We will send Live Jobs directly to you Loadsmart dashboard and to your email. When you click “Accept” on a load, it’s yours. No phone calls, no delays, no back and forth.
Yes, Loadsmart provides a platform that allows you to see and manage your trucks and shipments, electronically keep track of documents such as the BOL and chat with your drivers.

This allows you to track and manage your fleet more efficiently. Loadsmart is also able to send you better Live Jobs based on the location of your trucks. This information is completely confidential and is used only by Loadsmart to send you better business.
