About us

Carloads came about as a result of a sticky problem founder Candice Pardy faced on her Persimmon orchard in Gisborne. 


Where are all the workers?  How do I find them and keep them for the season?  After talking with workers she found that access to reliable transport was one of their biggest problems.  A seed was firmly planted in her mind, and the Carloads labour force solution was born - driven by people, powered by technology.


Creating optimum conditions where workers and growers can connect, thrive, and mahi together.
