Filling spaces to places*** is exactly what EmptyTrips.com aims to do. It connects those with spare capacity on their vehicles (truck, boat or plane) with those who require goods transported in Africa. The platform caters for all forms of road, sea and air general goods in transit (excluding passengers and specified items). The original concept originated from the need identified to reduce the empty space on large trucks returning from major cities in South Africa. Ideally, as any recovery cost would be beneficial, it is expected that cost of the transport would be offered at discounted rates; to simply cover at least part of the operational cost and/or fuel. As such, offering competitively priced space to individuals and/or companies. Through the platform we create accessibility for individuals and business to leverage existing logistical networks at reduced transport costs, whilst supporting logistical services providers with the opportunity to reduce empty space, save and earn new sources of revenue. Lastly, we encourage the concept of the shared economy to reduce unneeded space wastage and the inherent environmental impact of the heavy transport industry. I.e. sharing goes commercial!
