Technology is a vital component in the business and drives almost every area of our service offering.
We are constantly developing new technology to best serve our clients and their very unique, business-specific needs. For this reason, we have partnered with global technology partners in developing our own technology platform and Artificial Intelligence (AI) called ZOLAH™ – an app and online portal that allows our customers to access the online Butlers Logistics Direct to Consumer Management Realm.
