The Loadstar, evolved from an airfreight blog, was launched in 2012 as a multimodal online news resource for the logistics industry. The award-winning site has since become known at the highest levels of logistics and supply chain management as one of the best sources of influential analysis and commentary.

The focus is on independent, high-quality journalism for the benefit of our readers’ knowledge and understanding. Read by shippers, forwarders, logistics providers, carriers, ports and airports, The Loadstar connects partners in the supply chain.

We’d like to thank all our readers, sponsors and supporters for the huge growth we have seen since the launch.

Please feel free to get in touch – we’d love to hear from you. For more information on what we do and who we are, please go to the Editorial content, or Sales and sponsorship pages.
