Who we are

The Loadstar is the world’s most popular news source for freight forwarders, shippers, and their carrier suppliers who manage air cargo and containerised sea freight supply chains.

Every day thousands of shippers and their logistics partners read us to make sense of the supply chain. Our focus is on independent, high-quality journalism and commentary 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.

With over 50,000 subscribers our global importance to the people who move cargo is reflected in a readership that is truly international with a third of our readers based in North America, a third in Asia-Pac, and a third in EMEA.

In 2018 we launched Loadstar Premium, our subscription service providing essential financial news and analysis for executive teams, shareholders and investors of the major 3PLs and carriers, as well as investors and advisors to the global transportation industry. Currently, over 1,000 paying clients read Premium daily.

We also support organisations that want to engage and build relationships with our online community. Our marketing services proposition is based on the tenet that today’s freight buyer gathers their product intelligence not from salespeople but from trusted sources on the internet and their network.
