Findatruckload <www.findatruckload.co.nz> is a new web-based NZ company which brings together road transport companies and freight providers on-line to eliminate empty truck running, improve freight efficiency and reduce unnecessary vehicle emissions. Director, Andrew Bishop, says the launch of the business is extremely timely. “The launch of Findatruckload has been well timed as businesses are focused more than ever on cost saving.” The company’s website lists existing empty truck capacity and freight loads throughout NZ, including general freight, heavy haulage, containers, bulk and livestock. “It’s essentially an on-line auction allowing users to negotiate the price for cartage.” Registration on the site is free and it’s free to post loads and empty trucks. An acceptance fee is only charged at the point of transaction. Bishop says, “We’ve kept the site easy to use and transparent. It is time the transport industry embraced the web as more and more business is done on-line.” This article was reproduced with the approval of the "New Zealand Transport Intelligence Briefing."
