Based in Huntingdon, John Smith Haulage and their team of transport professionals offer national UK coverage, whenever you need them. The Haulage Exchange has helped them run their day to day operations more efficiently, here’s how;
What prompted your initial interest to join the Haulage Exchange?
We have never explored the idea of backloads or even looked into it, we heard about the Haulage Exchange and gave it a go
Before you joined us, what problems or obstacles did you face?
We had a lot of wasted mileage and didn’t have any backloads at all, ever! We have never run the company with backloads, the Haulage Exchange was suggested and it works brilliantly for us. We have really good feedback and we’re so glad we joined.
Before you became a member, how did you run your operations?
We literally ran our operations where jobs were carried out but the run journey was empty.
What will you say are the 3 best features of the Haulage Exchange?
Since joining, what exact problem has it helped you to resolve?
We no longer have to worry about having empty return journeys or wasted mileage. So now we make money whether we are going or coming back.
What difference does the Exchange make in your everyday activities?
It has enabled us to eliminate our dead mileage, which allows us to run and operate at full capacity.
Would you recommend us to others?
Yes, I would. As a matter of fact, we have already recommended a friend of ours, who is now happily a member.
