Through key investments, we have been able to develop and grow into a complete freight management system, that can scale from a small carrier to the largest of multi-national manufacturers.
Our vision now is to become New Zealand’s most connected Freight Management Solution for FMCG, Retail and Manufacturing businesses. Spanning multiple industries and sizes, our customers trust eCargo to gain control of their freight execution, with visibility and easy integration for their own customers and suppliers.
The eCargo story
eCargo began as a concept to create an online marketplace for transport providers and customers to connect.
With Wellington-based angel investor group AMR Holdings (now Movac) investing in the idea, eCargo grew alongside other startups such as Trade Me.
Carter Holt Harvey, at the time, one of New Zealand’s largest companies, quickly joined eCargo as a foundation customer, and a strategic investor through its venture capital arm, New Ventures.
This investment transformed the eCargo solution from a simple online marketplace to a complete freight management solution.
