LoadMax

This innovation initially came to life when…

When I came home from London and found it was so costly to move my furniture, I thought there must be a better way. And then I bought a few items from regional Australia and eBay and realised it was more expensive to ship these items then paying for them! I just wanted to create a way to support regional businesses but also create a win-win situation for transport providers.

WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

…create an online marketplace for transport providers and customers — and boost business whilst saving CO2!

It does this by…

…technology and matching customers needing to move items from A to B with transport providers going in that direction.

PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

…of the cost of moving items across Australia. It provides transparency and a better way to price the moving of your goods as well as creating better efficiency of our resources and roads.

Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…

It creates a win-win situation for both parties. Transport providers can bid on hundreds of items of work and customers can receive a better price to move their goods…which in turn supports online businesses.

It creates an online marketplace – the first in Australia for the transport industry and for customers.
