ReturnHauler - Providing a Better Financial Return

To be able to compare the respective financial performance of a ReturnHauler™ and  a standard  semi, we have taken typical revenues on a ReturnHauler™ hauling 35 700 litres of diesel on the outbound leg, and then hauling 30 tons of general freight on the inbound leg, and compared this to the typical revenue from a 38 000 litre ‘standard’ fuel semi doing 18 000 kilometres per month.

ReturnHauler™ earns less on the outbound (fuel) leg – being a heavier vehicle than the ‘standard ‘semi .   This due to the additional mass of the load deck and the headboards / tailboards.

But ReturnHauler™ is able to generate revenue on the inbound leg whereas the standard semi cannot do this.

Invariably general freight is lower rated than fuel – because of the cheaper trailing equipment required.

But despite the low rating on general freight , ReturnHauler™ will generate in the region of 44  % more revenue than a standard tanker by being able to transport general freight – a better option to running empty.
