Supply chain visibility platform project44 will expand into Australia and New Zealand.

project44 supports a global customer base tracking shipments across 170+ countries, and the expansion into Australia and New Zealand allows the company to better address supply chain challenges facing the region.

The news follows the recent announcement of the company’s office opening in Japan.

“Our teams in Australia and New Zealand have been working hard to establish project44’s market presence,” said founder and CEO Jett McCandless.

“As we expand our offerings, it’s important to have team members that deeply understand the intricacies of each market on the ground supporting our growth. Australia and New Zealand are facing long lead times, bottlenecks and rising freight costs compounded by its geographic location, and we hope to help reduce the supply chain disruptions that have continued in the region,” he said.

To build its presence in Australia and New Zealand, project44 established an office in Melbourne in February 2022.

Archival Garcia has been named vice president and general manager for Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia and will lead the expansion efforts.
