DispatchTrack expands Latin America penetration with Beetrack acquisition

CAMPBELL, Calif. — DispatchTrack, a last mile logistics software provider, has acquired Beetrack, a Latin American leader in logistics software, strengthening its presence in Latin America with the addition of more than 850 customers across 20 countries, including Chile, Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, and Costa Rica.

The purchase price for the deal, which closed last week, was not disclosed.

“This acquisition represents a massive expansion and market opportunity for DispatchTrack in this fast-growing geography,” said Satish Natarajan, DispatchTrack co-founder and CEO.

He said Beetrack is “well-known and well-regarded for its leadership in last mile logistics for the Latin American market. With incredible technology, customer growth, and momentum, Beetrack powers deliveries for top brands across the region.”
