what is fleethaul?

FleetHaul is RoadRunner’s hauling network of fleet-based, independent, and licensed owners and operators. FleetHaulers transport identifiable, salable materials to local buyers utilizing vehicles with better fuel efficiency than the standard garbage truck. 

In this unique program, RoadRunner’s logistics engines chart the most efficient routes for drivers. At the same time, our internal teams get to work creating custom strategies for our customers to sell and recycle materials. We handle materials like cardboard, paper, plastic, wood, metals, tires, electronics, compost, and other non-hazardous items.

The vehicles hauling materials are independently owned and operated outside of RoadRunner. We partner with these local drivers because it’s more efficient, burns less fuel, is less costly to maintain, and lowers the carbon footprint. 

FleetHaul works for your business to recycle more than 99% of all materials collected from recycling bins when traditional haulers in your area don’t offer service. FleetHaul’s logistics engines power increased efficiency when servicing your business and chart the most effective route to facilities that want your recyclables or organics. That translates to cost savings for customers.

how fleethaul can solve your challenges

A grocer operating a regional chain of markets needed to find an outfit that could move its growing and diversified recycling streams. The company utilized the power of RoadRunner’s FleetHaul program to gather clean, in-demand products and find local facilities where these materials were in demand. That included things like organics and electronics among more traditional recyclable materials. 

Using FleetHaul, the grocer was able to keep nearly 350 tons of compost and organic material out of the landfill.

More than 1,000 tons of cardboard were recycled through FleetHaul along with 25 tons of batteries. 

FleetHaul helped move these materials as part of a complete waste and recycling portfolio management program, which also helped the grocer save money.
