  • Manuport Logistics Uses Descartes for SOLAS Compliance

    Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Manuport Logistics in Belgium is using the Descartes Verified Gross Mass™ (Descartes VGM™) solution to help its customers comply with the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulations for container weight requirements.

    "The long-standing relationship Manuport has with Descartes played an important role in our selection of the Descartes VGM solution; however, it was the rapid implementation capabilities that really differentiated Descartes," said Luc Geerts, Strategic Accounts Manager at Manuport Logistics. "In addition, Descartes has an impressive track record in networked communication and the Descartes VGM solution uses a similar Descartes standard message format as we do for managing shipments. In the maritime industry where messaging standards are limited, Descartes greatly simplifies the process of communicating with different stakeholders in our supply chain."

    The Descartes VGM solution offers VGM compliance with connectivity via the Descartes Global Logistics Network™ (Descartes GLN™), and connects to the largest number of ocean carriers available in the industry. In addition, Descartes VGM enables customers to reuse existing connectivity to send bookings and shipping instructions, receive status messages in return and more. A single communications channel helps eliminate the need to access multiple carriers and streamlines communication across systems. Manuport has used the Descartes GLN for many years to manage electronic data exchange for customer orders, ocean carrier bookings, shipping instructions and container status messages.

    "We are pleased to be part of Manuport's ongoing commitment to enhancing the value it delivers to its customers," said Eric Geerts, Director of Product Management, EU Customs, Ports & Ocean Shipment Services at Descartes. "As part of our end-to-end connectivity and shipment management solution offerings, we help logistics service providers, like Manuport Logistics, seamlessly connect with carriers and non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCC) to facilitate SOLAS compliance and run efficient operations while effectively keeping pace with changing industry mandates and regulations."

  • Tony's Chocolonely Expands Internationally with the Descartes Global Logistic Network

    Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Tony's Chocolonely, one of the Netherlands' leading chocolate brands, is using the Descartes Global Logistics Network™ (Descartes GLN) to support expansion into the United States of America by streamlining electronic communications and order-to-cash processes with retailers.

    "To accelerate our mission of making the cacao industry 100% free of slave labour, we needed to grow our business in the USA given the significant demand for chocolate and the presence of key players in the chocolate industry in that market," said Frans Pannekoek, ‘Bean to Bar tender' and responsible for the Supply Chain at Tony's Chocolonely. "Electronic communications standards are different in North American and Europe. As an existing Descartes customer, we were able to quickly augment our existing Descartes GLN deployment to implement the new protocols and message sets to effectively communicate with our international retail and distribution customers in the USA."

    Descartes' GLN is one of the world's most extensive multi-modal electronic communications networks, connecting thousands of parties in more than 160 countries. It helps streamline, automate and standardize multi-party buy, sell, ship, and pay processes. These processes can involve a broad range of data elements and business documents that often span the buyer and seller of goods, transportation providers, logistics intermediaries, customs authorities and other supply chain participants across different geographies and levels of IT sophistication. Coupled with Descartes' extensive experience in on boarding and activing trading partners, GLN customers can quickly benefit from improved operational performance, reduced costs, and the agility to better satisfy customers.

    "We're very pleased to support growth at Tony's Chocolonely by providing business-to-business connectivity and full visibility of their logistic processes from their operations in Belgium to their retailers in the USA," said Fred van der Heide, VP Product Management at Descartes. "Growth via international expansion is an important, yet challenging, endeavour for many companies. Descartes' GLN was designed to help companies manage their global commercial, logistics and customs processes as they grow."
