Back load

Eh?
Stu is a lovely bloke and all that, but there's nothing altruistic about a back load. It's business, all hauliers aim to do this, even at a cheap rate it's better than returning empty and adds a little cream to the front load.

Cream, cheap rate, front load, returning empty sounds like we're in the bilges!

Have you dug that SIB out yet Stu?

Lovely, not always! But yeah It's not based on Altruism more like Symbiosis.

Of Course,'Business IS Business'[I have had my own business for 25 years]and a 'Cheap rate' is very 'constructive' in my view especially in the present climate

Back loads are essential to the transport industry, not many haulage companies can afford to have trucks/trailers running around empty.
