The Rates tool is a great way to identify the likely cost of a truck for a shipment you have.  It does that using DAT's traditional RateView rates, but taking into account specific details about the the shipment like:

  • pickup date
  • number of pickups and dropoffs
  • shipment size
  • hazardous

This tool can be accessed by navigating to

  1. Click on Rates from the menu

  2. Enter the Origin, Destination, and Equipment Type and click 

  3. Select the specific details about the shipment to get a closer estimate of the truck cost

  4. Next, choose to view either the Spot or Contract rate and whether you want to include the fuel cost

  5. In addition to seeing the traditional RateView LANE RATE you will also see the estimated SHIPMENT RATE based on the shipment details you selected
