About FreightExchange

A true industry first, FreightExchange was founded in 2014 by Cate Hull. Responding to rigorous research conducted into hundreds of members of the Australian freight community, Cate 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.
