Top ten: click here to save yourself a fortune
- 8th July 2009
It's estimated that around a quarter of haulage vehicles on the road are empty, using fuel for no profit, so this service matches individual delivery needs with haulage firms going to the same place with capacity to spare.
Users simply list what they want transported and wait for bids from one or more of the 4,000 hauliers on Shiply's books looking to fill their spare capacity. The bids take the form of a reverse auction, saving users around 75 per cent of their transport costs. Not only that, but it's green, too, reducing emissions and easing congestion on the roads.
