SaaS App Plans Green Freight

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 shippers and carriers across the U.S. GreenLanes is a 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.
