Spring Peak Season: Get Loads You Want Without Adding to Your Workload
For freight carriers, peak seasons come and go depending on what you haul. During spring, carriers that move refrigerated freight see a huge influx of beverages, produce and food – mostly coming from southern states such as Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia and Texas.
Taking advantage of peak season opportunities is not just smart, it can be profitable too. To make sure you get the loads you want before they’re gone, set up your Carrier 360 account to make sure we’re delivering load opportunities that fit your fleet – whether it’s one truck or many.

Set Up Favorite Lanes
We know carriers have specific lanes they like to haul. Tag it as a favorite in Carrier 360 and we’ll use that information to send you better Suggested Loads. Plus, when peak season rolls around you can quickly see available loads in that lane anytime.
Post Your Capacity
Know when you’re going to need to book a load? List your truck availability in Carrier 360 and we’ll send you a notification when there’s a match on the load board.
Check Facility Reviews Before You Book
Knowing what to expect at a facility is especially important during the peak season. Are operations streamlined? Is it difficult to navigate the lot? When is the best time of day to pick up or deliver? You can learn a lot from reviews submitted by carriers – check them out before you book to help make your decision. After you leave a facility, be sure to post a review so your fellow carriers can know before they go, too.
Trucking can be a tough job, and smart, easy-to-use technology makes it easier. Whether you own one truck or operate an entire fleet, your time is valuable. Let Carrier 360 lighten the workload with features built to give you and your drivers a better experience every day.
