Unfortunately, you will still find someone to haul it for nothing. Truckers are not all businessmen. The last company I drove for, would get us backhauls out of Pennsauken, New Jersey when we were in the Baltimore/Philadelphia area. They paid enough to cover the fuel to get back to Erie. That came to an end when I pulled into Altoona, and the lumper fees were more than the load paid.
By the way, a backhaul is a load that brings you to, or closer to, home. It is not, by definition, cheap freight.
