What is a Backhaul in logistics?

Backhaul is the return movement of a transport vehicle from its original destination to its original point of departure. Carriers can transport a full load, partial truckload or less than truck load by following the same route. An empty backhaul is not economically viable, so most of the companies will take advantage of this practice to compete on transport costs.
