VIDEO: Avoid Low-Paying Routes with DAT TriHaul

< Back to posts

It’s been a perennial problem in trucking: You’re offered a good rate to deliver a load, but the rate on the return trip barely covers your operating costs. That’s a good time to look for a TriHaul — a triangular route that pays better than a straight round trip.

For example, say you get you’re delivering a load from Chicago to Dallas. Usually that pays much better than Dallas to Chicago. So, on the way back, you may want to get a load from Dallas to Tulsa and then from Tulsa back to Chicago.
