A Future Without Empty Miles

Play episode

About 35 percent of U.S. trucking miles are driven empty. This means that roughly 1 in 3 trucks we see on the road are empty, traveling between jobs, burning fuel, time, and miles with nothing to haul and no money being made.

Convoy is on a mission to change that.

Joining the podcast today is Grant Goodale. Grant is the founder, former CTO, and now CXO of Convoy, an on-demand trucking service for arranging regional and local shipments.

Today, Grant tells us how his team is transforming the trucking and shipping industry by helping connect drivers and companies with orders around the country. Grant talks about how they built the Convoy network from the ground up, how they vet for and encourage safety among drivers, and how they are building a future without those time-sucking, fuel-guzzling empty miles.
