Carl Marchese

Founder

After spending 13 years as the CEO of one of Australia’s leading transport companies, MatchBox Exchange (MB) founder, Carl Marchese, experienced first-hand the waste and cost that empty container parks add to the international supply chain every day. Sending trucks into container parks for hours on end to return or collect containers (often the same containers) remains such a waste of valuable transport resources. There had to be a better way.

Solving this problem that affects the worldwide container logistics industry has been the inspiration behind the creation of MatchBox Exchange. As a result, an on-line ‘open market’ platform was created that empowers and facilitates collaboration between shipping lines and transport companies, freight forwarders and shippers, enabling them to exchange shipping containers in a way that eliminates the need to transit through costly container parks.

The Founder’s vision for a better – faster – smarter industry has already been validated with significant savings per container when using the MB platform. In the spirit of progression, the innovation also serves to positively impact road safety, reduce carbon emissions and create a far more responsible and competitive supply chain.
