Within DAT One, brokers and shippers can set up a 'private network', or group of selected carriers. They can then use this network to send loads directly to carriers without having to post them to the DAT load board for all carriers to see.

By utilizing a private network, brokers and shippers can allow selected carriers in their network to negotiate or bid on shipments, or to accept them as is, creating a completely online booking process for carriers that does not involve calling about the shipment.
