Backhaul is simply permitting the wholesaler/retailer to make pickups and prevent him from having to run his truck while it's empty - in addition to providing for a backhaul allowance or discounts.

Wholesalers and direct buying retailers may have a program whereby they stop at manufacturer companies' plants to pick up products and receive a backhaul discount (saving the manufacturer hauling costs). From the manufacturer standpoint, if they permit this practice, they are participating in a backhaul program and this can occur even if he has his own trucks.
