DAT is the granddaddy of truck load boards, founded in 1982 as Dial-A-Truck by Al Jubitz (also known as DAT Services), a truck stop owner in Portland, Oregon. TruckersEdge was acquired by TransCore in 1992 from Interstate Fax Service (IFS), an Internet pioneer in load board services.
Today, the DAT Network is the largest, safest, most trusted marketplace with 60 million loads and trucks per year.
TransCore’s Commercial Technology Group is a leading provider of transportation solutions in the United States serving brokers, carriers, owner-operators and shippers with best-in-class products.
