REDUCTION OF EMPTY MILES

Freight efficiency is defined as the amount of freight hauled per gallon of fuel used, so the fuller the trailer the better overall efficiency.  Many software management tools are available to help reduce empty miles by finding additional freight to haul given each fleet’s capabilities with routes, equipment, time, and other variables.

Trucking Efficiency is not currently planning any studies in this area, given the simplicity of the solution, but will consider with industry interest.

Benefits

By hauling more freight in a given vehicle, the fleet or owner/operator can increase income made with a vehicle.
