WiseTech Global announced it has joined forces with Core Freight Systems in order to “provide a more powerful and complete solution to South African logistics providers,” according to the company.
“Our union with WiseTech Global ensures that we will be able to continue providing the best solutions for our customers,” explains Jonathan Sims of Core Freight. “It is clear that the technological demands within the global logistics industry are rising at a critical pace. In order for us, and our customers, to remain world-class, we need to increase our investment and deploy a wider range of internationally leading functionality. We came to realize that we can do much more for our customers and Southern Africa by joining with WiseTech Global.”
The two companies said they have been working together for some time to integrate WiseTech Global’s supply chain solution, CargoWise One, with Core Freight’s existing system, which will be released shortly. In the medium term CargoWise One will have a new, embedded, South African Customs module for its customers, the company said. The existing Core Freight software will continue to be maintained for the foreseeable future to facilitate the ongoing operation of its customers’ businesses, according to the company.
Richard White, CEO and founder of WiseTech Global, comments: “Our focus and investment in South Africa represents a significant commitment to raise the service level of our EMEA customers through our commitment to South Africa. It is our plan to grow our staff numbers to more than 200 IT personnel and to put our South African offices at the heart of our global support and development strategy.”
