Posted on Monday, November 6, 2023

Our mission at Ofload is to achieve zero waste in trucking by digitising the transport industry.

In Australia, currently 30% of trucks drive empty and a further 50% are underutilised amounting to mass inefficiency and detrimental environmental impacts. Since 2020 we have scaled to a team of over 100, removed nearly 5 million empty kilometres from our roads. and have planted over 11 000 trees to offset our carbon footprint in partnership with One Tree Planted.

We are recognised by the Australian Financial Review as one of Australia’s Most Innovative Companies and are ranked number 4 on the LinkedIn Top Startups List 2023. And we’re just getting started!!!

We are looking to grow our team and welcome people excited by the opportunity to disrupt the logistics industry!
