WiseTech Global CEO Richard White said: “With the impact of ecommerce and advances in automation, warehouse management is an increasingly complex and specialised part of the international supply chain.
“WiseTech is uniquely well-placed to deliver the technology convergence and deep integration necessary to facilitate omni-channel, multi-modal movements across the supply chain, of which warehousing is a critical component. Ultimately, the native embedding of Microlistics WMS solutions into our integrated CargoWise One platform operating across 125 countries will substantially increase productivity for local and global logistics providers and their customers.”
Microlistics founder and managing director Mark Dawson said: “Joining the WiseTech Global group is a key part of our evolution. With the global strength and powerful innovation capability of WiseTech and our WMS expertise, together we will accelerate development of high productivity WMS to bring significant new benefits to the logistics industry. Microlistics will remained focused on warehouse management and we can leverage WiseTech’s global reach, resources and the CargoWise One platform, which for our customers will mean the opportunity for end-to-end execution, control and visibility of the supply chain.”
Remaining under the leadership of Mark Dawson, Microlistics will continue to develop and deliver its warehouse management solutions directly to its worldwide customers, and potentially to the 7,000 logistics providers across 125 countries who utilise WiseTech’s integrated supply chain execution services.
