Return load app

Dover, UK: Freightex has launched a new tool for hauliers to help identify loads and reduce empty running.

Freightex’s mobile-compatible website allows its network of hauliers to use their mobile devices to enter their location and destination and then search for available loads in the vicinity.

Tim Phillips,  chief executive, Freightex, says: “One of the biggest challenges hauliers face is how to reduce empty running and improve vehicle utilisation rates. Our new tool allows hauliers to search for loads even when they are on the road.

“Often hauliers have return loads planned but due to timing or customer issues the load is not available and they need to find a replacement. The benefit of the Freightex app is that they can often find you a load the same day near to where your truck is empty.”

Figures from the European Commission financed project C03, show that in 2010 the average truck on Europe’s roads had a utilisation rate of just 55% – a figure that barely changed in the previous ten years.

Only “approved” hauliers can use the tool and a dedicated account manager is provided to every customer that allocates a load using the system in order to ensure a high level of service is provided.
