Paperless trade platform provider essDocs has acquired TridentGlobal, an export management solutions provider based in Adelaide, Australia.

TridentGlobal offers a platform for exporters and traders to manage complex international trade processes, including modules for the management of contracts, shipment, bookings, compliance and documents, as well as supply chains for the metals and minerals, agribusiness, seafood and manufacturing industries.

The acquisition will enable essDocs to expand its mix of solutions offered to its customers, says the company’s CEO Alexander Goulandris. “Joining together with TridentGlobal enhances our ability to meet the expanding needs of our clients, while also delivering value to our shareholders.”

TridentGlobal will operate as essDocs Australia going forward, but the solution’s brand name will remain.

“With 75 people across 10 countries and four continents, we will be able to deliver TridentGlobal in a more local and personal way to our global customer base,” comments Carman Rossi, founder of TridentGlobal.
