How HX Members Can Utilise Delivery Work to Make Their Operations More Efficient in 3 Easy Steps
Step 1: Reduce Dead Mileage
When your delivery work takes you from one county (or country) to another, you’re automatically paying for the fuel and the driver’s time for a return trip. However, if your truck is empty on the way back, you’re not offsetting your costs with any profit. That’s dead mileage – something that has long been dreaded and, for a time, inevitable.
With the Haulage Exchange platform, dead mileage can become a thing of the past. If one of your drivers find themselves load-less after a delivery, work can easily be drummed up through our real-time app. Just log on to see return loads and snap up the ones that best suit you.
Step 2: Find Subcontracted Drivers
If you need to subcontract any delivery work, you can see who is nearby and looking for jobs on the live availability map. Cut out the guess and check system – you’ll know in an instant which drivers are free.
Step 3: Get It Right the First Time
Nothing is more frustrating than being let down by a driver. When you use an HX partner, you can be confident that the job will be done right the first time. Our members have all be accredited, meaning you have a top team of drivers right at your fingertips. There is even a system in place that encourages members to provide feedback for each other after each completed job, so you’ll know exactly who you’re getting before you ever offer them work.
How Does It Work?
A membership with Haulage Exchange is the perfect way to optimise your efficiency. When delivery work is available in your area or an area you wish to pick up a return load from, you will receive real-time notifications.
Drivers will have full control over when and where they work by posting and editing their availability and preferred destinations. Companies interested in subcontracting someone for delivery work will be alerted of these changes. Businesses and drivers alike will be able to work with their perfect professional partners on their own time. Once the job has been completed, they can rate each other.
- Make your availability known to Dispatch Managers
- Give other members feedback
- Get real-time notifications about available jobs
