BluJay Solutions acquires Expedient Software


Global supply chain applications and data solutions provider BluJay Solutions has acquired Australia’s Expedient Software in a move it says broadens its customs and forwarding technology offerings, and its presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

“We continue to strategically invest in technologies that enable frictionless supply chains for our customers. As a major player in the Australian customs and forwarding market, Expedient brings highly complementary technology to BluJay’s portfolio, along with a knowledgeable team to bolster our presence and expertise in the Asia-Pacific market,” said Andrew Kirkwood, CEO of BluJay Solutions.

“We are delighted to welcome Expedient Software’s team and customer base to BluJay.”

Headquartered in Melbourne, Expedient counts among its customers couriers, multi-national logistics companies, and mid-market freight forwarders in the Asia Pacific region.

BluJay says day-to-day, customers will experience no changes as a result of the acquisition, and Expedient will integrate with the global BluJay team, which has Asia-Pacific offices in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, and India.

Scott Craven, Expedient Software’s Managing Director adds, “As part of BluJay, we will continue to provide efficient software for our customers while gaining the strength of a global company. Our customers will benefit from an expanded footprint in Australia, New Zealand, and throughout the region, plus world-class support and infrastructure community, to best serve their needs. We are excited about the future with BluJay.”

“This region, Australia and New Zealand in particular, represents a significant market for global trade,” said Doug Surrett, Chief Strategy Officer at BluJay Solutions.

“Joining forces with Expedient not only expands our customs connectivity in these countries but also demonstrates our commitment to serving multi-national companies and domestic forwarders in this region.”

Some of the most important records are paper-based documents that are slow to issue, easy to fake and expensive to verify.
