Freighthub is a solution to the currently inefficient and overpriced freight process.
Our simple booking platform enables our customers to book and manage their freight in one easy to use location.
We track the capacity and locations of trucks on our system, so we are able to allocate freight to the trucks best positioned to do the job. By doing this we create cost efficiencies which are passed onto our customer through our real cost-based pricing mechanism.
A fundamental driver behind Freighthub is our mission to reduce the number of trucks running empty across New Zealand. On average 9 out of every 20 trucks are running empty, so this problem is significant.
The reason this problem currently exists is that most freight carriers work in isolation. So when businesses book freight delivery one way, the chances of the carrier filing the return trip with freight is low.
Freighthub provides a centralised platform for booking freight across a number of freight carriers, and we optimise for filling empty truck backloads first. In doing this we’re driving a change in the freight industry towards a more sustainable and efficient system.
There is no cost to sign up to Freighthub. You can experience our booking platform and see rates by signing up here.
Our freight booking system optimises for booking spare capacity on trucks, reducing the number of trucks running empty across New Zealand.
