How the HX Platform Solves the Dilemma of an Empty Truck

You know the scenario: you’ve got a delivery to pick up near your base and drive to another county. The fuel and the driver’s time that you use for the outbound journey is a cost of business. However, when you return to your base with an empty truck after making your delivery there’s no profit to offset the fuel costs or the driving time of the journey back.

The Haulage Exchange Platform can solve this problem for you.

If you or one of your drivers needs to take a load from London to Derby you’ll be able to bid for any of the return loads posted in real time on our platform.

How Does It Work?

As an owner driver or fleet manager with membership to Haulage Exchange you will receive real-time notifications for any available jobs in your area or in the area in which you want to pick up return loads.

Drivers can post and edit their availability and destination information on the platform, alerting any companies looking to subcontract extra delivery work. Once the load and driver are matched, members can rate and post feedback on their partners.

  • Real-time notifications of available jobs
  • Post your availability to Dispatch Managers
  • Give feedback on members
