PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DAT, which operates the industry's largest network of load boards, including truckstops, Internet and mobile applications, today announced a joint marketing agreement with 4 State Trucks, home of the Chrome Shop Mafia and the country's leading independent supplier of heavy-duty truck parts and accessories.

The agreement gives 4 State Trucks customers special access to DAT's TruckersEdge freight matching service as well as a special promotion when ordering through 4statetrucks.com.
