Hi! We are Explorate, an innovative collective of like-minded folks making useful and enduring logistics software.
Our team is here to make your job easier
Our industry, freight forwarding and international trade, is one of the last to be disrupted by digital innovation. Explorate is creating a simpler way to do complicated shipments by developing its own online platform.
Built by logistics experts and powered by cutting-edge technology, we empower our shippers with instant quotes and bookings, real-time track & trace, digital dashboards and faultless workflow management.
Logistics people who were sick of stacks of spreadsheets
The Explorate story began in a dusty freight forwarding warehouse in Brisbane during November 2012, when Conor Hagan was tasked with showing Alex Ewart, a recent graduate of international business, the world of international logistics.
It started like any other day in logistics back then, by sending a fax.
A relationship formed over a mutual interest in supply chains and technology. Four years and many faxes later, these colleagues turned into co-founders and created Explorate.
Playing on the old, to create the new
We are a team of logisticians, that don’t only know the pain points in our industry but have lived them. Like you, we have waited days for rates and weeks for a booking. We thought, “Surely, there must be a better way?”
