Hwy Haul is a digital freight platform for fresh produce.
Hwy Haul is a digital freight platform for fresh produce. Today, fresh produce in the US travels between 2 million farms and over 40,000 retailers in a convoluted, non-transparent, and oftentimes low-quality supply chain involving 500,000 refrigerated trucks. Worse yet, there is a shortage of 175,000 drivers, which is expected to double within the next few year. Hwy Haul has built a two-sided shipping marketplace focused on organizing and streamlining the complex refrigerated produce distribution market. With key features including ‘on the spot’ pricing and booking, load temperature tracking, re-routing capabilities, delay prediction, and enhanced functionality around handling rejected deliveries. The company is rapidly building a satisfied customer base. Hwy Haul's growth over the last 12 months has been very impressive.
