We are dedicated to delivering high quality, innovative services provided by committed local teams and supported by best-in-class global expertise and delivery capability in the ITS arena.</p>
<p>“We will be primarily targeting the logistics and transport industry but will also approach the utilities and energy sector offering a suite of mobility solutions and services which have increasingly become a corporate necessity due to compliance issues.”</p>
