FAQ

What is Loadfill and how can it benefit my company?

The Loadfill network is open to any company that requires goods transporting and/or has free space on their vehicles. It solves the problem of delivery vehicles running partially full or even empty between delivery/collection points by providing information to enable businesses to efficiently utilise spare capacity by carrying goods for other businesses. This enables vehicle owners to cover part or even all of their running costs by selling their spare space to companies requiring goods delivering, who in turn, could substantially reduce their transport costs.

Who can join the Loadfill network?

Anyone who requires goods moving and/or who has free space on their vehicles.
