Without Trucks Australia Stops - 2020 Year In Review
Updated: Jan 26
The word "unprecedented" became cliché during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was used to describe a time that we were entirely unfamiliar with, a time with little historical context for what was happening around the globe as we headed into uncharted territory.
However, as a reflection of the wider economy, the Loadshift marketplace during 2020 can only be described as unprecedented. With record breaking numbers of job requests pouring into the marketplace week on week, Loadshift saw new all time highs in each cargo category as we watched how Australian's managed throughout the pandemic.
Above all, we saw how Carriers truly were the backbone of 2020, and how without them, Australia would have stopped. 2020 was not an easy year at all for Carriers as they had to brave COVID-19 hotspots, juggle the mess created by the state border closures, and maintain their business whilst adhering to new restrictions and laws.
We take our hats off to all those Carriers who served this country last year, and we want to say thank you for all that you've done. We look forward to the year ahead and are confident in an even stronger 2021.
