Transport Exchange Group sees record year

A 25 per cent rise in the number of loads handled through its freight trading platforms made it a record year for Transport Exchange Group.

The haulage exchange and courier exchange saw ‘significant growth’ last year, as ‘road transport businesses sought to meet demand for added capacity, and tackle some of the operational challenges’ faced in the supply chain industry.

Managing director Lyall Cresswell said: “Key industry challenges such as driver shortages and fluctuating seasonal peaks are increasing the pressure on the domestic logistics infrastructure and driving demand for added freight capacity.”
