In early morning session, the WiseTech share price is trading at $30.95, up slightly by 0.36%.

WiseTech’s FY21 guidance

WiseTech advised that its full year revenue for FY21 would be $470 million to $510 million, representing growth of 9% to 19% from prior year. This is the same level it had previously forecast during its August guidance.

WiseTech’s supply management software CargoWise will contribute a recurring revenue market share growth of 15%-30% as a result of large customer roll-outs and new customer wins.
