HAKKA is a digital collaboration and e-commerce platform for container logistics based in Antwerp. The online HAKKA platform allows transporters to work together and exchange container transport tasks (rides). By exchanging container rides HAKKA achieves its strategic goals: help road transporters be more profitable, reduce unnecessary trips when trucks have to drive empty, contribute to reduce the traffic congestion and enable a cleaner environment. With HAKKA, a creative planner holds all the necessary cards to optimize its transport planning. By working together, road transport carriers reduce every year 120.000 unnecessary trips with a high impact on air pollution. Emissions are reduced with 7500 ton CO2/year. Reducing empty runs takes trucks off the road and reduces traffic congestion.
