Return Loads UK

Managed Transport Solution

Waller Transport Services was founded in 1973 by our chairman Adam Waller. A lot has changed since then, but one thing that’s stood the test of time is our pioneering belief that the most efficient haulage service should be run on a return loads basis.

Our commitment to providing a simple, hassle-free haulage service remains one of our core principles. By utilising both legs of the journey and offering one-way haulage costs, our customers are able to benefit from a dynamic, cost-effective transport solution.

What is a return load?

Haulage can often involve one way journeys. When a driver has reached their destination and delivered the goods they are transporting, there is nothing to bring back to base but an empty vehicle.

“Return loads” is the term given to using return journeys to carry cargo for another haulage job, as opposed to the above scenario.

What are the benefits of return loads?

For your business: Return loads come at competitive rates. If a return load is available, it will often be more cost efficient than hiring a haulage company directly to transfer your goods.

For our business: Running costs of a large vehicle add up when you combine fuel, maintenance and labour. Therefore, it’s better for us when the vehicles we have out on the road are committed to a task as often as possible.

For the environment: Utilising return loads helps to reduce traffic on UK roads, emission & pollution, fuel consumption and has an overall positive impact on our carbon footprint.
