In the shipping industry, one-way shipping is costly, so when transporting vehicles from one port to another, planning is also done for the return load. The way of transportation between two ports is called Backhaul. A carrier is looking for another load if any container is unloaded to the destination port. Briefly, it is the return movement of a container or truck from its starting destination.
