Hwy Haul Founders: Sharan Grewal, Syed Aman, and Zahed Khan
Hwy Haul’s end-to-end, next-generation digital freight platform for fresh produce cuts out the middleman, directly linking farmers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers to its expansive network that includes thousands of pre-vetted carriers. Their goal is to ensure produce is delivered efficiently, eliminating wastage, reducing freight’s carbon footprint and creating sustainable future growth for all stakeholders.
Syed Aman, CEO, and co-founder says, “produce spends half its life in the supply chain, and more than $15 billion is wasted or rejected in transit every year. Existing produce shipping methods are largely manual, with poor visibility and communication within the supply chain. These inefficiencies lead to a further problem of empty miles and their associated carbon emissions.”
Using the platform, shippers can find instant quotes and book loads in just a few clicks. Enhanced visibility allows for easier load tracking, including real-time humidity and temperature monitoring as they move across the country. Hwy Haul’s actionable data insights help optimize supply chains, reduce wait times, lower detention costs and more.
