Creating a Load

How are loads added to LoadOps? 

Loads are the lifeblood of your operation, so we made it as easy as possible to find and bring loads into LoadOps. There are currently six different methods of adding loads ranging from manual data entry to electronic data import. 

Manually Creating a Load

Perhaps the most straightforward way to add a load into loadOps- Simply go to Loads>Loads, click on the "Add Load" button, and manually enter the load information. 

Follow the guide below to see how.

Load Templates

Save time by creating a template that includes the customer info, times, and stop information you use most often. Check the "Save as Template" box near the bottom to save, and use the template whenever you create a new load.

Remember to choose an easy-to-remember name for your template!

Go to Loads>Templates to delete or make edits to existing load templates. 

RateCon Extraction

LoadOps also supports RateCon extraction, which allows you to upload your rate confirmation and have the details automatically pulled into the load details.

Not all RateCons are accepted- if you have ratecons that aren't on our supported list, send 4-6 copies to our support team and we can create mappings for them. 


The LoadOps import tool can be used to enter a large number of loads in a single upload. Go to Settings>Import>Load to add Loads or click here to read our import article. 


After one or more loadboard integrations are enabled, loads will be pulled into loadops and can be viewed in the loads>loadboard tab. Follow the guide below to learn more.


LoadOps EDI enables carriers to exchange information electronically with other businesses & Shippers.

With this feature, carriers can view loads shared via EDI, book or reject loads, and send shipment status updates. EDI also includes automatic load creation in LoadOps, which eliminates manual data entry and results in a more efficient and streamlined shipping process.
