Our vision is to become the backbone of global trade. We plan to achieve our vision by making shipping technology accessible for businesses in ways that are good for the earth.
A true industry first, FreightExchange was founded in 2014. Responding to rigorous research conducted into hundreds of members of the Australian freight community, founder Cate Hull could see the need to develop an online platform where carriers could sell unused space to shippers. In turn, shippers would have access to a real-time quoting and tracking system with significantly reduced prices.
Born from the need for a better, simpler and less time-consuming freight management system, this innovative platform has since transformed the Australian freight industry, empowering both shippers and carriers to reduce waste and inefficiency, improve customer service, and bolster their bottom line. Collectively, Cate and Martyn have an extensive background in logistics and freight, coupled with considerable technological expertise. They are also supported by a dedicated team of innovators, technology experts, and data analytics and service professionals.
In 2023, the company retains the same pioneering spirit, and remains driven by the desire to benefit our carrier network and customers by empowering win-win collaborations, and by supporting the freight industry at large.
