, a leading provider of supply chain software and services
powered by the world's first Global
Trade Network
, today announced an agreement to purchase Grosvenor
International Systems, a leading provider of customs and compliance
solutions to the UK and European markets. With this acquisition, BluJay
extends its position as the global leader for integrated customs

"We are executing on our plan to be the world's premier Customs
Management platform. Adding a dynamic team like Grosvenor will allow us
to extend our lead in the European market," said Doug Braun, CEO, BluJay

Lorenzo Rossetti, Grosvenor's Customs Development Director added, "Our
solution is a great match for BluJay's global single-window Customs
platform. Our technology is modern and flexible, which will allow for
rapid integration. In the UK, 80 percent of import customs declarations
are ‘self-filed' away from the border by importers or customs brokers,
allowing for speedy movement of goods through the port/airport. We
generate approximately 35 percent of those self-filed declarations in
the UK, so you know our system and processes are rock-solid."

"The pace of change in global trade is incredible. Brexit is a serious
concern for our Global Trade Network community," added Doug Surrett,
BluJay's Chief Product Strategist. "And adding Grosvenor's solutions to
our portfolio will help ensure compliance and productivity regardless of
Brexit's final outcome. They are a fantastic team, and we are excited to
welcome them to BluJay."
