Some loads have a Bidding Open countdown clock, which indicates how long the shipper will leave the load open for bidding.
Loads that have the BOOK IT NOW option in green are ready to book. The appointments for these loads are already set, so we recommend that you use the Book It Not feature only if the loads works for you as is. Clicking the BOOK IT NOW button will tender the load to you automatically.
