“As a global enterprise with dealings with importers, exporters, retailers and manufacturers, VISA Global Logistics is seizing an important opportunity to represent at MEGATRANS2018 to demonstrate how we add value to our clients,” said Hardwidge.

“As one of Australia’s largest privately-owned international freight forwarding companies, we have an extensive global network that continues to grow.

“Last year alone, the company acquired offices in India, Spain and the Netherlands while opening new facilities in Italy. In order to remain competitive, and to look to the future, it is vital for businesses in the freight and logistics space to push innovation and share ideas,” he said.

Transport management software specialist signs up for show

Allotrac, a specialist in purpose-built transport management software for freight and logistics businesses, has signed up to exhibit at the inaugural supply chain trade show MEGATRANS2018.

The business specialises in transport management software (TMS), which goes beyond traditional telematics by covering all facets of transport management and customising solutions to help improve efficiency and productivity.

While Allotrac’s TMS solution has been developed with fleet managers in mind, CEO Steve Nassar says the company’s innovative platform opens up a range of opportunities in different sectors, which is where MEGATRASN2018 fits in

“We’ve adapted the software most recently for a crane application, which is probably one of the first in the world. It’s the same technology, we’re just thinking about it in a different way,” Mr. Nassar says.

Visitors to Allotrac’s exhibition space at the show will have the opportunity to be taken through a demo of the company’s innovative TMS platform and how it can work for their business, which Mr. Nassar says is an exciting chance for Allotrac to engage with prospective clients in the wider Australian supply chain.

“We’re a big supporter of these kinds of events and it really was a no brainer joining the show,” he adds.

MEGATRANS2018 aims to bring together leaders and stakeholders in the wider Australian and international supply chain, including those in the transport, logistics, warehousing solutions, materials handling and infrastructure sectors.

The event takes over the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 10-12 May 2018.
