Well done to all at Kontainers, a provider of client-facing digital freight execution platforms, following the announcement that they are being acquired by Canadian company Descartes Systems Group, a leading provider of solutions to freight forwarders with more than 10,000 forwarding customers across the globe. Elkstone has been delighted to have supported Kontainers on its journey and we are looking forward to seeing it achieve its full global potential as part of Descartes.
