A Little Co-Loading Luck Delivers a Lot of Green Transportation

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In the spirit of today’s holiday we thought it was only appropriate to show the “green” transportation benefits customers can realize through close collaboration. Underutilized capacity costs shippers millions in wasted fuel and resources every year. Many trucks today travel with dense products that don’t maximize volume, or travel with large goods that take up space but not weight. These over-the-road (OTR) shipments often leave up to 80% of cubic capacity unused! This unused capacity can really add up over time, but with a little bit of luck and the right partners, you can create the perfect load and experience multiple green benefits. Check out our co-loading infographic to see how some of our customer are benefitting from close collaboration.

Collaboration is definitely not without challenges, but our OptiPro solution can help shippers overcome the biggest roadblocks when it comes to creating the perfect load. Read our award-winning case study to learn more about the benefits of co-loading.
