The company which has extensive experience in freight-forwarding and logistics management also launched SYTRANS, an innovative software platform that facilitates transactions between customers and trucking companies. The platform will help to achieve greater productivity, safer working conditions, transparency and flexibility which has not been seen in the industry over the years, this technological breakthrough will go beyond the boundaries of Sri Lanka to other overseas markets as a proud tech-innovation of Sri Lanka.
