Quotes from Article:

“To maintain the backbone of the freight economy and ensure the transport of goods can be executed efficiently  — while also chipping away at the damaging environmental effects of fossil fuel emissions  — the trucking industry is looking to technology.
“A software solution or digital freight marketplace can interrupt that cycle and match that driver with a nearby export, allowing the driver to reduce deadhead, intercept that export load, and deliver it to the port destination in time to collect their next container. The result is fewer unnecessary fuel emissions released into the atmosphere and fewer wasted hours on the road — a valuable advantage for drivers, who receive their best compensation rates when they’re actively delivering cargo.”
