Melbourne, Australia – April 9, 2018 – BluJay Solutions, a leading provider of supply chain software and services powered by the world’s first Global Trade Network, announces that BagTrans, Australia’s leading transport provider, has implemented BluJay’s MobileSTAR application for its entire fleet.
BagTrans delivers palletised product in a predominantly business-to-business environment with time-sensitive, complex, and demanding transport requirements. MobileSTAR’s core pallet configuration with standard reporting, and track and trace delivery capabilities are configurable to suit multiple process flows, and provide the functionality required for BagTrans’ growth.
“This is an excellent milestone achievement for our company,” said Habib Francis, COO of BagTrans. “The BluJay mobility solution is a critical initiative for BagTrans’ long-term strategy, and it is very encouraging to see progress made to date.”
Capitalising on BluJay’s global industry knowledge and experience, BagTrans is utilising MobileSTAR’s core pallet configuration and standard reporting to capture a two-way flow of information for real-time reporting and viewing. This added functionality allows BagTrans to reduce waste, improve use of resources, enhance time management, incentivise drivers, and gain time-sensitive data regarding delivery events and exceptions.
BluJay’s experience integrating with third-party solution providers, along with the application’s flexible and configurable nature has simplified integration into BagTrans’ existing technology. Outfitting its fleet of 120 trucks, BagTrans has the capability to view workflows and movement of freight from depot to end receiver across the entire organisation. BluJay’s mobility platform replaces a previously paper-based last-mile process, allowing BagTrans to meet its current and future vison for success and growth in the transport and logistics marketplace.
“BluJay is proud to partner with BagTrans to deliver the mobility platform that gives them a competitive advantage,” said Katie Kinraid, General Manager for APAC at BluJay. “We understand the palletised, inter-modal freight industry, and intelligent mobility solutions are an integral part of an enriched customer experience. We are supporting BagTrans while they create a best-in-class experience for their customers through an intelligent last-mile solution in MobileSTAR.”
BagTrans is the benchmark transport provider throughout Australia. In addition to its core business of national LTL and FTL palletised road transport, BagTrans also offers B2B break bulk parcel service, temperature-control service, and rail service. BagTrans’ primary market focus is medium to large national and multinational companies with complex and demanding transport requirements, delivering palletised product to food-chain and retail distribution centers; drug wholesalers; hospitals and pharmacies; and department stores, variety stores, and supermarkets.
