Holland-based BluJay Solutions, a supply chain software and services provider, today announced the acquisition of Blackbay Limited, a mobility-enabled solutions provider located in Manchester, England. The acquisition expands BluJay’s mobile offerings with comprehensive shipment tracking and proof-of-delivery capture.
“Intelligent mobility solutions have become an indispensable part of delivering a world-class experience for our customers and their customers,” says Doug Braun, CEO of BluJay Solutions. “Adding Blackbay to our global trade network is a highly valuable and ideal extension of BluJay’s offering, expanding customers’ visibility into the supply chain and each stage of delivery.”
Blackbay’s scalable and configurable platform connects the shipper, operations, management, driver, and end-customer with real-time data and automated workflows to uniquely address the “last mile” of the supply chain.
With an ecosystem of supply chain software, services, and the first global trade network, BluJay unlocks the power of more than 40,000 universally connected partners so companies can achieve greater trade velocity, transform their supply chain economics for disruptive advantage, and see beyond the horizon to optimize their future in the global economy.
“Blackbay’s mature and flexible delivery connect platform will provide our more than 7,500 customers with exciting new mobile workforce management, track and trace, and workflow capabilities,” adds Doug Surrett, BluJay’s chief product strategist.
Headquartered in the U.K. with offices in Australia and New Zealand, Blackbay will fully integrate with the global BluJay team. The two companies have partnered for nearly a year with a significant customer in Asia using their mobility program.
