The Worcestershire-based White Logistics & Storage Limited is the latest road transport operator to become a member of Transport Exchange Group’s freight trading platform.
Using the Exchange the company aims to maximise free capacity by filling empty return loads and getting connected with likeminded logistics partners across the UK.
White Logistics & Storage is looking to boost the productivity of its mixed fleet of 60 commercial vehicles, especially 30 smaller vehicles made up of 7.5, 12 and 18 tonne rigid trucks by joining the more than 3,000 couriers, owner drivers, hauliers, freight forwarders and logistics providers that are trading more than 500,000 movements every month via the Exchange.
The company’s Pershore based transport management team, will use Haulage Exchange to post available resources and target complementary work requirements from other members. It will also look to create a network of trusted partners moving forward, which will enable them to not only make best use of assets but also expand operational capabilities and geographic reach.
Andrew Johns, Traffic Manager at White Logistics & Storage Limited commented: “We have been looking for an effective means of making the most of our resources to boost our productivity and profitability. Removing any waste and dead mileage from our transport operation will make a real contribution to our operational performance, so we look forward to becoming an active and established user of Haulage Exchange.”
Lyall Cresswell, Managing Director of Transport Exchange Group explained: “We have seen rapid growth of our freight trading platform in recent months, with a 35 per cent increase in the number of vehicles operated through the site since the beginning of the year, as operators look to better control operational costs and strengthen margins. Using the exchange, our members can get connected and engage with other likeminded businesses across the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe to develop and maintain lasting relationships that will ultimately support business expansion.”

Well, if you were paying attention you'll know that last week I published a post about how I was glad owner driver jobs were becoming more popular in order to offer some healthy competition to Royal Mail.

Whatever the case, though, I'm sure most of you will be making plans of some sort by now. I don't know what it is about September that makes people want to move on from where they are and make a fresh start - maybe it's because the children are starting a new year in school. I don't know.
