Bulk Loads Now is always working to create synergies between carriers and every possible shipper to find freight, and we are working hard with our members to keep them and their products moving. We do this through load posting, load history contact database and truck posting. Timing is critical for carriers to find freight and keep loaded as much as possible, especially on rising input (fuel, tires, truck, trailer) costs.
