About Us

Background on Findatruckload

Walter Ormsby and Andrew Bishop set up Findatruckload (FTL) in 2009 to make better use of trucks running empty throughout New Zealand.

Minimising the amount of trucks running empty not only creates efficiencies for transport operators it also reduces carbon emissions and in turn transport users have more cost effective options.

Collaboration between carriers has always been a sensitive subject. Findatruckload combats this by being independent and offering a competitive online market place to trade loads in a private tender format.

Today we can help hundreds of customers move machinery, general freight, loose bulk, containers, furniture, livestock, dangerous goods, refrigerated cargo and vehicles anywhere in New Zealand using road, rail and coastal shipping solutions.

At last count over 1200 transport companies and over 900 transport users are registered on the website. We have successfully moved over 40,000 loads to date and have been growing on average 30% year on year.

Our Core Values & Beliefs:


  • Our technology is the key to your productivity
  • Our online market place creates competitiveness
  • We make the transport industry more efficient
  • We reduce carbon emissions
  • Our independence advances transport collaboration
