Haulage Exchange

Load exchange service provider Transport Exchange Group has seen a 20% increase in annual transactions, mainly driven by growth in the number of hauliers and freight forwarders using its Haulage Exchange service.

Last year it handled more than 462,000 transactions as operators looked to reduce costs, empty running, and the impact of the rising price of fuel.

Compared to 2012, it also saw a 12% rise  in the number of active users to over 5,000 across its Haulage Exchange and Courier Exchange sites.

MD Lyall Cresswell said: “Our expanded proposition means we are well-placed for further success during 2014 as we become partner of choice for an increasing number of haulage companies, couriers, freight forwarders and owner-operators.”

The group has recently struck a deal with sat-nav and telematics provider Navman Wireless, allowing members to link their tracked vehicles with the Transport Exchange Group's sites.
