JAKARTA (TheInsiderStories) – Waresix, an Indonesian young and fast growing logistics technology platform, has acquired Trukita, a logistics technology start-up that offers freight and trucking services in the first-mile space, the company announced today. The operator seeks to expand the first-mile logistics space and enhance its existing range of offerings for shippers and transporters.
Currently, the provider offered end-to-end logistics services catering to all aspects of the supply chain, including trucking, warehousing, multimodal transport and vendor management.

Andree Susanto, co-founder and CEO of Waresix, said, “With the combined capabilities of Trukita and Waresix, we are now one of the largest logistics technology providers in Indonesia.”
He added, that with the acquisition will allow the company to gain access to an extended network of over 10,000 trucks and hundreds of new customers, positioning Waresix in good stead to tap on more opportunities in Indonesia’ $12 billion port logistics market.
“At Trukita, we see many opportunities to work together with Waresix to address the inefficiencies of Indonesia’ logistics supply chain, such as uncertainty and high costs,” adds by Trukita’ CEO and co-founder, Ady Bangun.
