A backhaul is the return route to the originating shipping point. For example, if a carrier takes a load from Miami to Chicago, the trip back from Chicago to Miami would be considered the backhaul. Backhaul often refers to the cargo that’s hauled on the return trip as well.
A backhaul load helps drivers avoid losing money. Shipping on dedicated lanes that freight travels on frequently is one way to encourage drivers.
