About us

Want to be trusted to take ownership of your work, with freedom to experiment? Excited about solving big problems and changing an industry? Keen to see your work have an impact – fast?

At Qargo, we’re technologists and industry experts who’ve come together to help the trillion-dollar logistics sector become more sustainable and profitable.

An astounding 4 out of every 10 trucking miles are empty, costing the industry $100 billion a year – and producing more carbon emissions than every international flight combined. Transport firms currently waste time with inefficient processes and paperwork, missing opportunities for better communication and collaboration.

We built Qargo because the industry deserves better. Our solution eliminates tedious manual processes, helps carriers use their resources more effectively, and embeds digital collaboration in their day-to-day workflows.

With Qargo, the industry can optimise loads, lower costs and cut emissions.

If you’d like to build a better way forward, and be a driving force in an inspired team – come and join us at Qargo.
