BluJay Solutions, provider of global supply chain software and services, has partnered with Australian IT consulting company specialising in supply chain procurement, FourPL, to accelerate the digital transformation in the supply chain.

The partnership provides Australian and New Zealand customers with greater capabilities across end-to-end transportation management.

“FourPL is well recognised within ANZ for its expertise in the logistics and supply chain industry, as well as being known for its consulting arm,” says Katie Kinraid, general manager, APAC at BluJay. 

“It has an in-depth understanding of the local market and allows us to expand our reach among logistics and supply chain customers in ANZ. 

“Given FourPL’s extensive reach in the region and robust advisory services across spend management, logistics execution, and supply chain visibility, it was a natural choice to partner with FourPL in the region.

“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with the FourPL team and look forward to a very fruitful partnership.” 

BluJay’s digital platforms – including Transportation Management for Shippers, LSP Platform (TMS for Logistics Service Providers), and MobileSTAR – help customers to improve efficiency and visibility in their supply chains.

According to BluJay, technology benefits have gained importance throughout the pandemic, which has accelerated a focus on supply chain resiliency and innovation to help companies better navigate economic and geopolitical factors that can disrupt their supply chains. 

The partnership expands BluJay’s scope in ANZ across the transport management, freight forwarding, and logistics service providers markets.

The news comes on the back of local customer wins for BluJay, which include Aramex and Flyjac. Today, a robust network of shippers, suppliers, carriers, digital freight networks, and visibility platforms transact more than $18bn in freight annually in BluJay’s transportation network.

“As a global specialist in the supply chain and logistics space, the BluJay brand further enhances our existing portfolio of global partner and leading-edge technology solution providers we offer our customers,” explains Brett Findlay, CEO at FourPL.

“Together with BluJay, we’re looking forward to helping our customers across the region gain greater value through technology to help ensure the best possible outcome.” 

FourPL customers include many blue-chip Australian companies across multiple industries and six major logistics service providers.
