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?”
