High energy prices and energy consumption concerns have taken the fun out of freight services. To alleviate some of the gloom, Lean Logistics of Holland, MI has introduced GreenLanes, a transportation and freight optimization
program designed to improve sustainability and reduce empty miles for

software-as-a-service application that lets freight managers determine
opportunities for round trips, continuous moves and fractional
dedicated truckload. The goal is to reduce empty miles, now at 15 to 20
percent, to 3 to 5 percent.
