Less Than Truck Load

Goal: A single lorry runs at full capacity, rather than two half-full lorries taking the same journey independently.

Pilots in this category aim to first identify vehicles that are transporting goods at less-than-full capactity along a similar route. Pilot partners are then able to identify opportunities where goods currently being moved in two separate lorries, can be combined into one, therefore removing a lorry from the road.

NexTrust has several pilots working within the LTL category: 

Pilot 1.1. Multi Supplier- Multi Retailer platform: Four major Belgian biscuit suppliers consolidate their deliveries to four Belgian retail stores to reduce truck movements and to increase the truck's fill rate.
