Who we are

Every day thousands of freight professionals and shippers read The Loadstar to make sense of the supply chain. Our global importance to the people who move cargo is reflected in a readership that is truly international with a third of our 80,000 weekly site visitors based in North America, a third in Asia-Pac and a third in Europe.

Our focus is on independent, high-quality journalism for the benefit of our readers’ knowledge and understanding. We strive for authenticity and significance by a daily attempt to be first to the story, making the market think, and challenging the global freight industry to do better.

This unremitting focus on producing great journalism day in, day out has been the driving force behind our incredible growth story and has allowed The Loadstar to become one of the world’s most significant publishers of logistics and supply chain news, comment and analysis.

In 2018 we launched Loadstar Premium and immediately broke the biggest M&A news story over the last couple of years, the takeover of Panalpina by DSV. Since its launch, Loadstar Premium has become the essential financial news and analysis resource for executive teams, shareholders and investors of the major 3PLs and carriers, as well as investors and advisors to the global transportation industry. 

2021 saw the launch of the Loadstar Podcast which is intended to add nuance and depth to the daily news coverage our readers enjoy. They feature debate and breaking news from our global team of journalists and interviews with the world’s leading freight executives and analysts about the forces making the supply chain tick and the challenges that lie ahead.

Current accolades for The Loadstar’s writing include the Seahorse Awards’ “Journalist of the Year”, “Air Cargo Journalist of the Year”, “Feature Journalist of the Year” and “International Editor of the Year” awards.

“The Loadstar stands out amongst transportation and logistics publications with a truly global focus on events within the trade. Few publications are able to deliver The Loadstar’s in-depth analysis of economic events and their impact on the world’s supply chains. Logistics industry professionals who are looking for a truly global view of the market really must read The Loadstar.” Fauad Shariff, Amazon Global Logistics
