Full truck loads are sometimes easier to manage. Having a full load means that there is usually one stop to offload, and the driver can use a direct route. It's also easier to get a return load if your truck is empty and there are no other stops to make once you take on the new load.

Some drivers don't mind hauling a partial load or making a lot of drop-off and pick-up stops. There are, however, drivers who like the idea of an uninterrupted ride that piles up the miles. Hauling one product can be easier as well. The only times you will have to stop are for food breaks.

Finding Loads Online

Now you can find full truck loads online where thousands of loads are posted every day 24/7. You can sit at your computer and plan your trips to maximize your time. If you own your own rig, you can work with shippers who have loads to give out to independents. Before you even leave your house, you can have a plan for both outbound and return trips.

Some load post sites practically guarantee that you will never deadhead home. They will work with you to optimize your chances of two-way loads. They want to keep you busy hauling a full trailer. For their services, they charge you a small monthly fee to access the list of available loads. The choice is yours. Check out your local paper, call around, or go on the Internet.
