Our Story

An industry first, FreightExchange was co-founded in 2014 by Cate Hull and Martyn Hann in response to research conducted with hundreds of members of the Australian freight community.

The finding from shippers and carriers alike was that it was time consuming and difficult to manage freight, resulting in significant waste and inefficiency and even empty transport carriers - all of which impacts margins.

Equipped with an extensive background in logistics and freight, coupled with expertise in technological innovation, Cate and Martyn saw the opportunity to develop an online marketplace where carriers could sell their unused space to shippers. Customers then have access to a real time quoting and tracking system with significantly reduced prices.

Developed and launched in 2014, FreightExchange's dedicated team of technology, data analytics and service professionals are passionate about supporting the freight industry.

Everyone Wins

Empty capacity across the freight industry are reported to be around 30%, already costing the global economy around 400 billion US dollars, a result of an inadequate use of assets.

Our values are based on a simple philosophy - we want everyone to win.

Whether it's a consumer benefiting from lower hidden costs of freight, a carrier who has full trucks, a shipper who has instant access to reputable carriers at reduced costs, or the economy as a whole through waste reduction, we work with this key principle every day.
