Tractor has engaged Hivestack’s supply side platform (SSP) and ad server unlocking new revenue from DOOH. Tractor is the first media owner in South Africa to have access to this technology.

This is why we are thrilled to have access to Hivestack’s world-class, first-to-market technology, which will allow advertisers to buy custom audiences across our DOOH network. Our aim is to drive the mindset change needed to convince advertisers that DOOH is a great medium for their spend, and that it can successfully – and measurably – deliver on campaign outcomes.”

This marks a very exciting move for Hivestack as we continue our worldwide expansion and Tractor Outdoor is the perfect partner. They are amongst the first to recognise the programmatic potential in the region and are helping to shape the digital out of home (DOOH) landscape.”
