The merged company will provide an integrated transport and logistics software service with increased operational efficiency, particularly focusing on the compliance issues related to the new fatigue regulations.
Advanta managing director Robert Kery said the merger was an ideal fit utilising, the overlap in the respective markets.
“The two companies have been operating in complementary marketplaces and we believe the merger will generate significant synergies and will benefit clients and staff alike,” Mr Kery said.
TransLogix managing director Anselm Waterfield also welcomed the consolidation, saying it would enable them to provide a broader range of products with a higher level of functionality.
Mr Waterfield said: “We are now in a position to offer our customers a more comprehensive end-to-end solution that improves the efficiency, scope and performance of their businesses.
“Our continued investment in research and development will shorten the lead time for new projects and further improve efficiency and return of investment for our customers.”
With offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland, the TransLogix group alone has over 300 clients.
Advanta shareholders will join the board of TransLogix, and become shareholders of the merged group headed by Mr Waterfield as managing director with Mr Kery as chief operating officer.
