On the load details screen, there is a map of the route. For Apex clients using NextLOAD, this screen will also show all the truck stops along the route where you can get discounts on fuel.

Most of the available freight on NextLOAD is general freight, but brokers and shippers will post special loads if available. You can find cargo van loads, reefer loads, flatbed loads, auto hauler loads, heavy hauler loads, hot shot loads, hopper loads and many other types of freight for different equipment.

We are working on having bulk load posting directly in NextLOAD. Currently, if you post loads with PostEverywhere®, which allows bulk posting, your loads will be available on NextLOAD. If you do not use PostEverywhere®, contact us at 844-827-7700 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll find the best load posting solution for you.
New available loads are automatically refreshed every 10 seconds. Unlike other load boards, we don't charge you extra for this feature.
Yes. We take loads down that have expired so you don't have to worry about irrelevant loads cluttering up the list. Loads listed might already be booked, but we do allow the broker or shipper to manage posted loads and remove them.
Not every broker or shipper puts a rate with the truck loads they post because they want you to call them directly to negotiate a rate and determine if you want to haul the freight for them.
Not every broker or shipper includes the distance with their available loads they post because the routes available may vary.
