Yojee Limited (ASX:YOJ)

The cloud-based SaaS logistics platform was up 8.82% in early morning trade, reporting that October saw 184% year on year growth – with the company confident of continued year on year growth in FY22 despite a Covid-impacted September quarter.

YOJ said the maturation of logistics hubs, strong enterprise relationships, on-going hub go lives and expansions have been additional drivers to this high growth phase.

Plus, multiple countries remain on track for hubs to go live by the end of the calendar year including an imminent Europe go-live, which Yojee says further bolsters its momentum and position.

The company’s Yojee Labs and IoT Product focused on intelligent warehouse to assist organisations reach cost and competitive excellence have gained further traction, with the company moving from proof of concept programs into commercial discussions.

“Our embedded growth rollout strategy is being realised with the exponential increase in rates of new go- lives expected by the end of this calendar year and a reduction in time from contract agreement signature with our customers to first revenue from implemented hubs,” managing director Ed Clarke said.

“This is a validation of our strategy and shows the true growth potential of the business.”
