Pilot Car load board system finally released!
Oversize trucking companies using WideloadShipping.com will enjoy our new location based pilot car system. This new system is very easy to use enabling carriers to locate pilot cars in real time on a live Google map instead of calling down a list of companies not really knowing where any of the available pilot cars are geographically located at. The pilot car industry will hopefully be just as pleased as the list based system was simply not fair. No matter how you shake a list, someone always has to be on the bottom. To make matters worse WideloadShipping started leaking the build in May with an anticipated release date of June 5. Months past that date now due to programming complications and after a long summer of hard work the new pilot car posting system and load board is open for use. It features free load/run posting accounts for posters of work for the industry as well as live posting that is a affordable add-on feature to the required basic or premium account options which place your home office on the live map along side of the live pilot car posts. Additional features like credit posting are included with both account types however the premium accounts offer much more in exposure to potential new clients with rotating advertisements on the front page being one of many additional features that come with the premium accounts. If you are new to the system, welcome aboard!
Need to post your cars in a location where the carriers can see you?
What better place to do it than on a oversize shipping loadboard site? Many sites do many things but WideloadShipping is the king of oversize and heavy haul shipping. Strategically created over 10 years ago to service this small sector of the transportation industry they’re a little company that moves big stuff. Shipping equipment and machinery amongst other items that are in the oversize or over-weight class. After initial launch of the site in 2003 they realized the need for a pilot car directory in order for their registered carriers to be able to benefit more from the system they had designed. “If you’re sealing deals with direct customers and getting state regulations you might as well be able to locate pilot cars. While the carrier accounts are relatively easy to manage and need very little after a quick tutorial, the pilot car industry is a handful at best” says company general manager Michael Rader. “We have to be much more creative in order to maintain a balance”. It seems things are going as good as can be expected in this economy as there is plenty of freight on their boards with pilot car companies in every state and province in the current directory. It will be interesting to see how this new system effects the industry and how they respond to it.
You can have your fleet of vehicles posted live in just a few minutes.

Then you will have to add in your pilot car vehicle plate numbers to register your vehicles. Each vehicle is charged a small monthly fee for posting their live locations.
