BluJay, with this acquisition, is set to widen its customs and forwarding technology portfolio, as well as its presence throughout the APAC region.
Andrew Kirkwood, CEO, BluJay Solutions, stated that the company would continue to strategically invest in technologies, enabling supply chains that are frictionless for its customers.

Expedient, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, counts among its consumers most of the multi-national logistics companies, top couriers, as well as mid-market freight forwarders in the region. Regular customers would not experience any changes as a result of this takeover. The company would integrate with the global BluJay team, which has APAC offices in Singapore, India, Hong Kong, China, Australia, and New Zealand.
Doug Surrett, Chief Strategy Officer, BluJay Solutions, stated that the region, Australia and New Zealand specifically, signify a major market for global trade. Working together with Expedient not only extends its customs connectivity in these countries but also showcases its commitment to serving various multi-national companies and domestic forwarders in this region.
