Search for offers on the map

The exchange also allows searching for offers on the map. Click the "teardrop" pointer next to the Loading or Unloading field.

  1. Once saved, the data will appear in the Loading or Unloading field, depending on your selection. Click on the Search button - the list of offers will be displayed below.

  1. Additionally, you can specify the search method: lines or cross. Select the option of your interest and confirm with the Search button - the list of offers will be displayed below.

Search by incomplete postal codes

  1. Select Search loads from the menu on the left 
  2. In the Loading field, enter a country code and the first digit of a postal code (or the first two to narrow your search) using one of the following methods:
  • country code -> space -> incomplete postal code (e.g. PL 05 or PL 1),
  • country code -> comma-> incomplete postal code (e.g. PL,05 or PL,1),
  • country code -> hyphen -> incomplete postal code (e.g. PL-05 or PL-1),
  • country code -> incomplete postal code (e.g. PL05 or PL1).

  1. From the list of suggested loading places, choose the one that interests you. Set other search parameters. Click Search.

The list will include load offers meeting the criteria you have set.

Searching for loads along the route

  1. In the Search loads module, set the filters and then click Search.
Precise search criteria, such as type of load, weight, or preferred date, will narrow down the results to more to more fitting options.

  1. Click the Show on the map button above the table with the list of searched offers. A new tab will open with a large map view and the Search for load offers panel.
  2. Select Search mode -> Along route and set the radius.
  3. You will see the list of available offers in the panel on the left and on the large map.

If you want to flexibly adjust the route, drag the loading and unloading points on the map. Your freight list will update automatically.

Don't waste time and start conversations about freight directly from the map. Click on the offer you are interested in and then propose a rate or initiate a conversation.
