WISETECH announced today (14 March) it had acquired LSP Solutions, a provider of customs and warehouse management software in the Netherlands.
LSP offers customs compliance management software, bonded warehouse administration, contract logistics and warehouse management. Its customer list includes Damco, GEODIS, JCL Logistics, Vos Logistics, Hitachi Vantara and others.
WiseTech CEO Richard White said the Netherlands was a critical transport hub with Europe’s largest port and a well-established and dynamic trade flow.
“Bringing LSP into the WiseTech group now deepens our reach in this important market which will benefit from the combined strength of WiseTech’s innovation capabilities, or CargoWise One supply chain execution platform, and LSP’s customs and warehouse management solutions,” he said.
LSP Solutions managing director Marco Pieplenbosch said the company had worked closely with customers to provide effective, flexible products rich in functionality.
“With WiseTech Global’s powerful development capacity and global reach we look forward to accelerating our capabilities and better supporting our customers’ logistics operations with increased automation, improved productivity and mitigation of risks,” he said.
“Ultimately, our vision is that our customers will benefit from faster, safer and easier customs compliance and warehouse management.”
Remaining under the leadership of Marco Pieplenbosch and Erik Wilting, LSP operations will be integrated within the WiseTech Global group and LSP will continue to deliver its logistics software directly to its own customers, along with WiseTech’s integrated global logistics platform, CargoWise One.
