A freight finder is a company, often accessible on the Internet, that matches drivers with jobs. Using a finder can be very easy; it's a simple matter of going online, entering a keyword, and choosing which website looks most like what you're looking for. If you're an independent, it's definitely the way to go in the 21st century.

Finders charge a fee for the service, but it is often minimal and well worth the returns you will get by being able to manage your driving. Imagine virtually eliminating deadheading by knowing how to choose rides for maximum efficiency. Once you post your resume on a finder's site, you may start to get calls from freight carriers looking for drivers.

Maximum Efficiency--Maximum Income

Using a freight finder can be your way to make the most of your drive time. With a little planning, you can actually lead a more normal life because you decide which loads to go for and, once you start getting calls, which loads to take. You will have the power to control where you go and when, and, as important, how much you make.

By using a finder to reduce deadheading, you will be able to increase your income and save money by hauling fewer empty trailers back from long trips. You will even have some choices in the types of loads you try to get. If there's a drive you don't like, a road you hate to cover, you can select loads that go the other way. Using an online finder gives you more control than you've ever had over your career and your life.
