The SmartHop tech-enabled dispatch provider and DAT Freight & Analytics recently announced a partnership that enables SmartHop’s small carriers and independent owner-operators to access loads from the DAT platform within SmartHop's system. 

“There’s fierce competition for truckload capacity today, and our integration with DAT opens up millions of new loads and roads for independent drivers and small carriers,” said Guillermo Garcia, CEO and co-founder of SmartHop.  

DAT will integrate its API and data into SmartHop’s platform, giving SmartHop customers the ability to streamline the load-matching process and compete with larger carriers for spot truckload freight. More than 880,000 loads are posted to the DAT network each business day, and more than 1.5 million trucks and 100,000 carriers are on the DAT platform, the company said.
