Finding & Booking Available Loads: Chapter 3 – Carrier’s Guide to CoyoteGO

Every day, shipments from over 1000 shippers move through the Coyote Europe network CoyoteGO® makes it easier for you to find the right ones that are right for your business.

Once you find opportunities you’re interested in, you can either book it instantly for the listed rate (when applicable) or try to negotiate by submitting an offer.

In this article, we’ll show you how to:

  • Find available loads
  • Make offers and negotiate on loads you want
  • Book loads when you get a rate that works

 

Finding Your Next Shipment in Available Loads

Once you log into CoyoteGO, go to Find Loads in the top menu. This will bring you to the available loads search page. We’ve made it easy for you to comb through our load board to narrow down your search.

The following images are from the desktop version of CoyoteGO, but the Available Loads searching and booking function in the CoyoteGO mobile app is virtually the same.

The basic search function allows you to hunt for opportunities based:

  • Origin and destination radius (country, city or zip code)
  • Pickup date range
  • Equipment type
  • Load number

You can refine your search even further with Advanced Search options. If your search does not return enough options, try expanding the search parameters.

The results page will show you all available loads that meet your search requirements. You can quickly and easily compare your options and review important load details.

 

Find the Right Freight Faster with Saved Searches

Next to the Advanced Search option, you can quickly filter Available Loads search results based on your preferred lanes.

Once you set the search filters to meet your common network needs, just save the search and next time, finding the right load will be even easier.

You can also use a map view of your search results instead of a list if you prefer a different visualization of all your options.

Getting Load Details

Knowing all the relevant information is very important when selecting your next shipment. We made it easy to get all the details you need to make an informed decision.

Each search result (available load) will have a dropdown arrow on the far right-hand side. By clicking on the arrow, you can

  • Favorite (or star) loads you’re interested in
  • Hide loads you no longer want to see
  • View all relevant load details

 

Booking a Load: 2 Options in CoyoteGO

If you have found a load you are interested in, there are potentially two ways to book it.

Book It Now

Not every carrier will have access to Book It. For more information, reach out to your Coyote rep. For carriers that have access, if you have found a load with a listed rate and a green Book It button, just click the button.

You will be prompted to enter the truck plates for this shipment and the load will be yours instantly.

Submit Offer

If there is a load that you are interested in, but the rate does not work for you, make us an offer.

Simply enter rate you want and select Submit Offer. You will receive confirmation of your offer, and Coyote will follow up, either accepting, countering or declining it right in CoyoteGO.

Negotiating in CoyoteGO: How to Manage Your Offers

The My Offers widget in lower righthand side of your CoyoteGO (in the desktop version) keeps track of all your offers.

You can manage all of your negotiations from this tool. Once you submit an offer, it will show up in the Pending tab. Once Coyote accepts, counters, or declines your offer, you will receive a notification and your offer will move to the Accepted, Countered or Declined tab, respectively.

You can also view your offer history to keep track of your activity.

 

Pending

 

If your offer is accepted by Coyote, all you have to do it select Book. You will be prompted to assign a driver (you can add one if the contact does not already exist in CoyoteGO)  and confirm, then the load is yours!

 

Accepted

How to Book Loads

Once your offer has been accepted click the ‘Book’ button, fill in the Tractor and Trailer numbers of the assigned truck, click ‘Confirm’ and you will instantly receive the order confirmation.
