The increased market share is as a result of CargoWise’s partnership with Compu-Clearing, a South African logistics technology provider.

Other customers are in the process of implementation.

Compu-Clearing Chairman Arnold Garber says, “The strength of Compu-Clearing’s market knowledge of African-based companies’ business requirements, together with our support capabilities at a local level and CargoWise’s ediEnterprise fully-integrated single-platform solution, means we can offer value that cannot be beaten. We see great potential to extend ediEnterprise across the logistics services spectrum from freight forwarding and customs broking to shipping management and warehousing.”

CargoWise’s investment in a strong partnership eco-system has been greatly beneficial for both partners.

Volodya Bilanovsky, CargoWise vice president for Partner Programs says, “We have a great pipeline for growth in the African region. Our strong product combined with the local knowledge of Compu-Clearing maximizes the value each partner can extract from opportunities in this emerging market.
