About Ofload and our mission

At Ofload, we're at the forefront of digital freight services, empowering businesses to build efficient, flexible, and sustainable supply chains. Our mission is to achieve zero waste in trucking by digitising the transport industry.

Every day in Australia, around 30% of trucks travel empty and a further 50% are idle amounting to mass inefficiency and harmful environmental impacts.

Since 2020, we've successfully removed over 5 million empty kms from Australian roads. Our customer base has expanded to over 250 businesses, and we proudly support small business carriers by connecting them with household brands like Asahi, Metcash, and Noumi.

As part of our sustainability commitment, we partnered with Trace to measure, reduce and offset our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, actively working to minimise our own environmental impact.

In 2022, we propelled our growth through the strategic acquisition of a Melbourne-based logistics company, and raised $60m in Series B funding. Notably, we were recognised by the Australian Financial Review as one of Australia’s Most Innovative Companies.

Fast forward to 2023, Ofload was named a Deloitte Tech Fast 50 Company in Australia, and secured the 4th spot on the LinkedIn Top Startups List 2023. And here's the exciting part – we're just getting started!

We are looking to grow our team and welcome people excited by the opportunity to transform the logistics industry. If you're ready to be part of a dynamic team driving change, join us on this incredible journey!
