Our Mission

Transforming the Freight Industry
to create efficiencies for all parties

Walter Ormsby and Andrew Bishop founded Findatruckload in 2009 after recognising the inefficiences of the transport industry due to the empty movements of trucks and containers throughout New Zealand.

Based on the firm belief that minimising the number of trucks running empty would create efficiencies for all parties within the freight and transport industries, their aim was to also reduce carbon emissions. They believed that technology was the key to providing transport solutions through the establishment of a completely independent online marketplace, supported by a dedicated team.

Our business model is 100% sustainable through the matching of freight with empty truck and container capacity. This matching process provides clients with choice, reliability, and solutions to their transportation problems.

Findatruckload is a true 4PL supply chain integrator offering a variety of transport options to move; machinery, freight, bulk, containers, and vehicles anywhere in New Zealand using road, rail, and coastal shipping solutions. Over 1600 transport companies and over 1500 transport users are registerd on our website which has led to over 90,000 loads being moved to date.
