Antwerp selects Hakka’s empty trips solution

Hakka, a digital platform reduces empty trips by trucks, responded to a Request for Proposals by Port of Antwerp in 2018, and in 2019 alone it prevented 150,000 empty trips.

With the new Hakka platform hauliers are able to swap containers so as to avoid empty trips, thus also reducing road congestion and CO2 emissions, according to Port of Antwerp.

The Port says that Hakka offers various services including a marketplace in which hauliers offer trips and take over consignments. As a result the number of empty trips has been reduced by between 10% and 25% and 3100 trucks are already registered with the service and the number of swaps is expected to grow along with the number of registrations, according to the announcement.
