After logging in, you will be on the page we call the “dashboard”. From the dashboard, click on the big blue button that says, “Search for Loads”.
For a very BROAD SEARCH, you may simply enter the state. Results for all loads originating in that state will appear. The default display sorts the search results from newest posted loads to the oldest loads.
You may sort the results any way you wish using the “Sort By” drop-down menu above your search results. You may sort by variables such as origin, destination, date posted, pick-up date, etc.
To narrow your search results, you may enter the origin city and state OR zip code. You may expand or reduce the “radius” (the distance you are willing to travel to pick up a load). The wider the radius, the more loads that will appear. The narrower the radius, the fewer loads that will appear. The maximum radius is 500 miles. The minimum radius is 25 miles.
If you have attempted a load search and cannot find any available loads, it is possible that no loads are posted within the radius of your search. Please note that the “default” radius may be set too narrow (like “200 miles”). You may expand that radius manually and the wider the radius you select, the greater the chance you will see the loads you are seeking. We have posted over 75 million loads, so continue searching throughout the day as loads are posted in real time 24/7.

Load match notification is considered a “premium feature” that you pay extra for on some sites. Not on Free Freight Search. To get the most out of this valuable feature, make sure you always post the location of your available trucks!
