What frustrations were you facing before joining Returnloads.net?
The biggest frustration we faced as a relatively new company was that people had no idea who we were. We had no recognition whatsoever from the haulage companies we were dealing with.
It was also very time consuming ringing hauliers and having to explain who we were before they would consider dealing with us.


How did you do things before becoming a member Returnloads.net?
We did use another haulage exchange but found this was more geared towards courier loads and smaller sized vehicles. 
When we couldn’t get the load covered there we wasted a lot of time calling hauliers from the phone book but this meant we had no real idea who we were dealing with.

What was the one thing that made you decide you needed Returnloads.net?
Well, Returnloads was actually recommended to us by another company for the larger haulage work so we gave it a try and it has worked very well for us. 

It’s a way to be seen in the industry. The vehicles are relevant and the companies are reputable.

What, in your opinion, are the top 3 features of our haulage exchange platform?
1) The ability to input multiple loads very easily without having to repeat everything. This means a lot of time saved.
2) The freight alerts work well so you don't have to always go into the site and search for loads as all the new relevant loads are sent to you.
3) Generally the site is very easy to use again making it less time consuming.

What specific problem did Returnloads.net help to resolve? 
Really the biggest thing was establishing a reputation and recognition and being seen on Returnloads has helped with this.
There are lots of large reputable hauliers using the site and to be seen working with these companies has raised our profile.

Would you recommend Returnloads.net?
Yes I would and i have already recommended the site to others. Returnloads has definitely made life easier. We know who we are dealing with and people now know who we are when we call about a load.


What is the single biggest reason you would recommend Returnloads.net?
It’s a way to be seen in the industry. The vehicles are relevant and the companies are reputable.
