Star Track Express buys Teradata kit

 

Deployment over six months.

Freight firm Star Track Express has announced plans to invest in a new data warehouse and business intelligence platform over the next six months.

In a brief statement, the company - which is jointly owned by Qantas and Australia Post - said it had settled on a Teradata active enterprise data warehouse platform.

The Teradata solution would help manage information currently in a SQL Server database environment "by bringing all data sources into a single and integrated view of corporate information."

"This will enable and support the introduction of a range of new services and capabilities for our customers, including advanced track and trace," said Star Track chief executive Derek Lightfoot.

The company said the data warehouse was also helping to provide "a range of valuable distribution profiling, service quality and freight cost accounting tools to our customers."

Star Track had invested $200 million building express freight depots in the past five years, according to Lightfoot.
