Malley ’79 Announces Pierbridge Acquisition

For more than 25 years, Robert “Bob” Malley ’79, P’10 has helped thousands of businesses streamline logistics with transportation software solutions. Now, Malley’s company Pierbridge, Inc., has an even greater reach, recently having been acquired by Australia-based WiseTech Global.

Pierbridge, Inc. is a parcel shipping software company that streamlines carrier selection, booking, label printing, tracking, invoice reconciliation and business intelligence reporting direct to customers, which include Overstock.com, Siemens, U.S. Homeland Security, BNY Mellon Bank, Texas Instruments, Genentech, Mazda, Home Depot and Menards. WiseTech Global is a global developer of cloud-based software solutions for the international and domestic logistics industries.

“With their global infrastructure, cross-border logistics expertise and deeply integrated logistics capabilities, WiseTech Global provides Pierbridge with a unique opportunity to address complex international parcel shipping worldwide. Together we will develop advanced solutions for the exponential growth in volumes to come,” Malley says.

As Pierbridge’s CEO, Malley built the global organization that developed the parcel TMS platform Transtream, the only multi-carrier management software that has earned both FedEx Diamond and UPS/ConnectShip Platinum level status for excellence and customer adoption. Remaining under Malley’s leadership, Pierbridge gains access to thousands of logistics providers globally who utilize WiseTech’s supply chain solutions.

In 1989, Malley founded Tracer Research Inc., where he launched Clippership, a leading carrier management software product. A decade later, Tracer was acquired by Kewill Systems Plc., where Malley became president of the eCommerce division, served as a board director and was later promoted to CEO. Malley is currently a board member of Vistage NYC, the world’s leading chief executive organization. Previously, he served as an executive committee member of Agile Network LLC.

Malley earned a degree in philosophy from Hobart and a J.D. from Suffolk University Law School. In 2002, Malley established the Robert Malley ’79 Scholarship to be awarded to an HWS student with financial need demonstrating leadership skills and academic excellence.
