Global logistics solutions group, WiseTech Global has recently announced the acquisition of U.S.-based software company Depot Systems.

Speaking on the announcement, Richard White, Founder and CEO, WiseTech Global, said that Depot system is renowned as the nation’s leading container yard management software with substantial container yard experience and advanced products.

He claims that empty container yards are essential but are often an overlooked part of the landside logistics and international supply chain, thus making addition of Depot Systems vital to build further opportunities for its technology solutions.

White further claims that the acquisition would provide the company a better visibility and coverage into the container yard sector to solve the landside logistics issues which would in turn, strengthen their one-stop integrated platform CargoWise One and help them drive long-term operational advancements for logistics providers.
