I'm trying to write a formula to remove the "➟" if the preceeding field is empty.

Current Formula:

Origin" ➟ " &{Destination}&" ➟ "&{Backhaul From}" ➟ "&{Backhaul To\\Return}" ➟ " &Origin &" - LANE #" & {LANE#} 
 
Here is the output of the above formula.  Formula above works great, (example 1 below) but if there is no data in {Backhaul From} and {Backhaul To\\Return} the result is example 2 with 2 extra arrows.  Example 3 is the desired results.
 
1) Walmart ➟ Kroger ➟ Target ➟ Walmart - Lane # 1
2) Walmart ➟ Kroger ➟ ➟ ➟ Walmart - Lane # 2
3) Walmart ➟ Kroger ➟ Walmart - Lane # 2
 
I've tried BLANK() IF AND with no luck.  Can this be accomplished?

Try using an IF for each field:

Origin & 
IF(
  Destination,
  " ➟ " & {Destination}
) &
IF(
  {Backhaul From},
  " ➟ " & {Backhaul From}
)
