Overview

The Find Loads page is where available loads with Arrive Logistics are displayed. Users can search available loads and narrow down results using multiple filter categories to find loads that interest you most for purchase.

Find Loads displays an overview of load information for available loads including Pickup location and date, Delivery location and date, Miles, Weight, Equipment, and Price.

Using Filters to Find Loads

When accessing Find Loads by default no options are selected within each filter category, providing all possible available loads. Narrow down the list of available loads using one or more filter categories.

For example, if you are looking to pick up a load in Chicago, IL, but are flexible on delivery location, use only the Pickup filter. If you also want to find loads that are around the Chicago, IL area enter a mileage radius to expand your search results.

Results update after every filter applied. Your results will update to available loads based on your defined filter criteria.

It is possible to see No Results displayed. This is because there are no loads available that match the filter criteria you’ve specified. In that event, it is recommended to reduce the filters applied to broaden your search criteria.

To reset your search and filters simply click on the blue Clear All button to reset all filters to defaults.

Each filter category also has the capability to be cleared and reset to default.
