We value all our members and continuously work on providing them with incredible tools that can help them achieve their business goals. We believe in transparency, which is why all of our members on the Exchange leave each other feedback once a job has been completed.

Is Haulage Exchange only for national operators?

No. As an owner-driver, haulage company or freight forwarder, you decide whether the work is local, regional, national or international.

How can my company join Haulage Exchange?

All our members go through a vetting and compliance process. This is so we can make sure that you are exposed to only the highest calibre of haulage professionals when operating on the Exchange. After registering with us, you will be asked to provide your full company details including accreditation documents like insurance and licenses. Once all your documents have been screened and everything is in order, you will officially be part of the Haulage Exchange family.

Who is the buyer and seller in a Haulage Exchange transaction?

The ‘seller’ or subcontractor, is the member with a load that needs to be delivered. The ‘buyer’, or owner-driver, is the member with vacant capacity that can deliver the load on behalf of the subcontractor.

How do I stop my clients from being poached by other members?

We understand that keeping clients is what your business is all about. Haulage Exchange is designed to help you do that by enabling you to increase your geographical service area and meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs) by dramatically increasing the size of your available fleet. The only members who will ever know who your clients are will be the ones you choose to work with. Our feedback system encourages other members to treat your clients respectfully and any misuse of the Exchange will be dealt with accordingly.
