Using DAT RateView in Turvo

After creating a new shipment, you can click on Market Rates to see the DAT rates that you selected. 

Market Rates will be the default view in the shipment if you enabled market rates in your tenant. You can switch back to Map or Satellite view by clicking on the view option.

RateView rates are displayed in Turvo based on the data you contribute to DAT. DAT analyzes your historical data, and based on that data, they provide the rates. The rate information is then displayed in the Shipment and is based on each route segment.

In the image below, both Contract and Spot rates are shown. You need to toggle ON DAT rates (see step 5 in the previous section) and have either Contract, Spot, or both selected to access the rates you want to display.

Rate updates

The RateView data will update in Turvo twice a day based on your RateView subscription. RateView update data is sent to Turvo twice a day: 2:00 AM Pacific Time and 3:00 PM Pacific Time


Important note: If you are unable to see Network Rates and there is a No data available message displaying after following the steps in this article, contact the DAT Support team to troubleshoot your RateView service:

Fuel Included in Rates

You have the option to include fuel costs, or remove fuel costs, from your rates. Click the Fuel included checkbox to include fuel costs into your Spot or Contract rates:


Or, uncheck the Fuel included checkbox to remove fuel costs from the Spot or Contract rates: 


View Flat or Per Mile rates

You can select the arrow next to Flat or Per Mile to open the option to select and change the Rate Type to the Flat or Per Mile rate view.

Your Rates data is coming soon

Turvo is currently developing an enhancement to Turvo's RateView feature that will populate Your Rates with the Turvo shipment data that will be shared with DAT. Until the new enhancement is released, you will only see No data available displayed in the Your Rates field.

We will notify you when the Your Rates enhancement will be available in a future release.
