Do I need my Own Authority?

Dry Van, Reefer, Box Trucks, Power Only, Flatbed and Step Deck

Which documentation do I need to sign up for your services today?

Your company’s DOT, Letter of Authority, Signed W-9 Form, Certificate of Insurance and Signed Datla Logistics agreement. (If you’re using a factoring company, we will also need a NOTICE OF ASSIGNEMENT)

How do I know if a shipper or a broker will pay me on time?

We only work with reputable shippers and brokers and in addition to that, always checks their credit worthiness even if they are our longtime partners. Therefore, our carrier clients have a complete peace of mind.

Do You Force Dispatch?

No, as an owner, you can decline a load at any time. We work hard to provide loads that fulfill your requirements and preferences. As long as you communicate it upfront, we will only provide loads per your required profile.

What kind of paperwork do you handle?

We handle broker/shipper packets on the behalf of carriers as well as any other documents required for load booking. We also submit your BOLS to the broker, shipper or factoring company.

Who creates the invoice for the load and how fast do I get paid?

When you hire us, we will take care of invoicing the brokers and follow your payment status until you receive it straight on your bank account, check on the mail or through a comcheck express code. All freight brokers or freight shippers will pay you directly, how fast you get paid depends on them.

Where do you find your freight?

We work with brokers, Load boards and direct shippers.

What are the benefits of working with Datla Logistics for dispatching?

There are many benefits of working with Datla Logistics! We handle all of the paperwork so you can say goodbye to filling out carrier packets, insurance certificate requests, phone calls, faxes, NOAs, invoicing, and billing. We even take care of the rate confirmations.

Can I work with you if I'm a new carrier?

Absolutely! We’re looking for serious and hardworking owner operators who want to put on miles at good rates. We’re not looking for excuses or stubborn carriers who don’t understand that the freight market is dynamic, and rates fluctuate. Granted, as a new carrier it will be much more difficult for us to find you the truly great loads since all too many brokers and shippers will not work with carriers whose MC Authority is less than six months or one year. Once you’ve passed the one-year mark, almost every broker becomes fair game.
