Eco Haulage is a freight exchange website that primarily links together hauliers and freight forwarders helping both parties utilise the benefits of capatilising on empty back loads.
The Depart for Transport states that 29% of lorries are running empty in regards to their trailers carrying thin air, this is known as dead mileage. This provides scope for electronic mechanisms such as Eco Haulage Freight Exchange to provide mutual trading platforms to allow the relevant commercial transport personnel to liase amongst each other to increase the efficiency of their operations.
Unlike other freight exchange website, Eco Haulage not only provides the ability to find back loads but allows its members to create a 'eco profile' where they can state the amount of carbon saved in terms of Kg's which they can advertise to their customers gaining them a environmentally friendly USP.
