What is a Haulage Exchange?
A haulage exchange is an online platform that connects companies that need their goods delivered with transport companies that have the capacity in their vehicles to deliver their goods. haulage exchange platforms match delivery requests with transport companies based on the size of the load and pickup and delivery locations. By matching a load to a vehicle that is already going that route, or is returning along that route, it utilizes vehicles already on the road.
This is how our haulage exchange works:
This results in maximizing existing capacity and reduces the number of emissions causes by lorries and vans. You can save money on your deliveries by matching your delivery job with an existing return journey for one of our many transport companies..The Department for Transport has recently highlighted the importance of collaboration within the industry in their Freight Carbon Review which includes an interesting case study from Returnloads.net.
