Italian logistics providers will be able to significantly increase their global reach following a new business partnership between WiseTech Global, developer of the logistics management system, CargoWise One, and ACO Informatica, a Milan-based supply chain specialist. The move will allow logistics providers throughout Italy to take advantage of the productivity and integration capabilities of the enterprise-class system, with the backing and local market expertise of a dedicated regional partner.
Joining WiseTech Global's fast-growing WiseBusiness Partner Program, ACO Informatica will offer sales, consultation, implementation and support services for the cloud-based supply chain system, CargoWise One. As a market-leading provider of customs, freight forwarding, logistics and IT expertise it Italy, ACO Informatica is well positioned to offer Italian customers a software solution with global reach.
"There are many freight forwarders in Italy with outdated systems and a limited capability to connect with each other and the rest of the world," says ACO Informatica General Manager, Bruno Soldati. "They have global networks but need an IT solution that can more efficiently link their branches and agents throughout their operations.
"We were specifically asked by a number of logistics providers to partner with WiseTech Global so they could get localized access to CargoWise One. We all wanted to increase the competitive advantage of logistics providers in Italy and recognized that CargoWise One's productivity and integration capabilities combination with ACO's regional expertise and understanding of the local industry would help achieve just that."
The WiseBusiness Partner Program has seen continued success in recent months with significant partnerships being signed in key and emerging markets. ACO Informatica joins a growing number of logistics industry professionals capitalizing on CargoWise One's industry recognition.
"The WiseBusiness Partner Program is a great opportunity for logistics specialists like ACO Informatica to add value to their business by aligning themselves with the worldwide success of CargoWise One," says Vlad Bilanovsky, WiseTech Global Vice President of Partner Management. "CargoWise One is already localized for the Italian market and we're committed to developing more features that specifically benefit our Italian customers. The partnership will allow customers to benefit from consultation and implementation services from a local partner who fully understands the unique needs of their market—good news for Italian logistics businesses and a significant opportunity for ACO Informatica."
