Open Road is an alliance of social enterprises building effective and affordable logistics services for local produce.

Utlising the team at The Open Road has given me the unique opportunity to gain previously inaccessible clients due to their faraway locations. This revolutionary new delivery option has allowed me to maximize my workday by taking the stress of delivering off my shoulders and into the hands of capable drivers.

We are beyond excited to see regionally grown and produced goods now making their way across the state with the Open Road service. Open Road has distribution depots in Victoria around North East, Gippsland, Mornington Peninsula and Greater Melbourne and are expanding into other areas.
Our refrigerated trucks move produce between depots at farms, community food hubs and independent retailers. Open Road customers include nonprofit grocers, food service, hospitality and independent stores like butchers, bakers, delis and those who need home delivery.

Our team is now working on building and expanding our coverage based on demand.
