Backhauling

Backhauling

Definition

Refers to a trucker's practice of hauling certain cargo one way and, on the return trip, hauling a different cargo or cargo of an unknown type or kind for a fee. Returning with a load of cargo for a fee can save on costs, since the return trip must be made by the trucker regardless.
