For those that contribute their rate data to DAT, you can see where your rates stack up against the DAT average rate.  This can tell you if you are overspending in a particular lane and who you are overpaying.

  1. Run a search in RateView a lane you are interested in and view the historical rate information for that lane
  2. Scroll down to the 13M HISTORICAL chart and check the box for My Company Reports
  3. Each bubble on the graph represents your contribution data and shows you where you are in regards to the DAT average.  When the bubbles are above the benchmark average, this represents that you may be overspending.  When the bubbles are below the average, this represents an example of you saving money compared to the average DAT rate.  Hovering over a bubble will show you which customer it is and exactly how much you paid the carrier.
