Supply chain efficiency starts internally, but it should not end there. Collaborative shipping lowers costs, creates resiliency, lowers carbon emissions, and aids sustainability efforts.
That’s why we created Backhaul Buddy, so companies could privately share their shipping schedules to create continuous routes for drivers. Negotiating with multiple load runs ensures better carrier rates for everyone.
When a carrier drives home empty or has to sit and wait for the next load, it costs shippers extra. The carrier has to be compensated for their time, but they would rather receive better compensation for hauling a load.
That’s why we created Backhaul Buddy; so shippers can work together to provide backhaul for carriers and create continuous routes for drivers.
Knowing for certain there’s another load lined up, it’s easier to take that trip that leads a carrier to Podunk towns.
Driving empty sucks.
Even if you are partially compensated for the miles, that’s not who you are. You drive truck because you
play the essential role of connecting businesses with the supplies they need. When you’re driving
empty, it’s a waste of your time.
What if there was a way to guarantee a load to be picked up as soon as one is dropped?
Imagine the seamless world of load after load.
Drivers turn down certain routes because they end up leaving without a backhaul load. Shippers struggle to find drivers willing to go to these places and often pay much higher rates because of empty miles. Backhaul buddy offers a way to streamline the supply chain of an entire region and open up much-needed capacity.
What if there was a way to stop paying for empty miles and lower costs for everybody?
A seamless world of load after load restores your negotiating power with carriers and creates reliable service.
Carriers have those cities they really don’t want to go to. We know that. We know it’s hard to drop a load off in Montana because there’s nothing to haul back. That’s why we created Backhaul Buddy; so you can explore beautiful places such as Montana without sacrificing your paycheck.
As we connect inbound and outbound shippers you can drop one load and grab another. You get back on the road faster making money across the nation.
Knowing for certain there’s another load lined up, makes it easier.
