How to post a truck on Amazon Relay

With Post A Truck, you don’t have to watch the load board 24/7. Just share when and where your company’s trucks, trailers, and drivers are available for a chance to be matched to spot work.

Criteria can include:

  • Origin
  • Destination
  • Availability
  • Start and end times
  • Maximum stops
  • Stem time
  • Payout

Posting a truck gives you first mover advantage. We look to match loads with Post A Truck orders before loads become available on Amazon Relay’s load board. Once a spot work order is created, it stays open until it’s matched or the order expires. You can also cancel an order if your availability changes.
