The categories within the board include distance, type of load and truck type. In addition to browsing jobs, truckers can enter their own information to indicate professional specialties. C.H. Robinson offers payment and communication through the board, according to its website.

A trucker can provide shipment status updates to C.H. Robinson through the portal. Additionally, truckers can upload shipping documents through the portal to avoid delays in payment for completed deliveries. The website keeps track of funds owed and time-lines for payment, as the CHRWTrucks website reports.

Once truckers have signed up for the load board and submitted their information, C.H. Robinson might contact them about jobs that are not visible on the website. The board no longer specifies the exact nature of the products in their loads, due to hijackers using this information to target trucks for theft or competitors using the portal to steal clients, according to C.H. Robinson truckers on the Truckers' Report.
