Backhauls are a Myth said: (quoted from post at 16:47:11 07/28/11) If
A smart trucker plans ahead.
They sit tight when a load has to come together.

As a guy who ships logs and lumber around the midwest. If I call a trucker for a rate and a haul and he says "let me see if I can get a back haul before I quote you a rate" I politely hang up the phone and find somebody else. Product has to get moved ASAP in the summer months to keep it from staining, so I don't have time to sit around waiting for a trucker to line up a backhaul. The product usually needs to get moved that day.

That said plenty of my truckers do end up finding backhauls and haul at a cheaper rate as they are coming back home one way or another.

Thats fine, but you're paying for the discounted backhaul on the other side. Having time sensitive cargo prevents you from getting discount rates.
