Descartes Systems Group, a global on-demand software-as-a-service (SaaS) logistics solutions provider, announced that LBMX Inc. has renewed its subscription to the Descartes Global Logistics Network(GLN) for logistics messaging.

LBMX provides group solutions – including electronic data interchange (EDI) services for buying groups, purchasing co-operatives, franchisors and their members – and has been using the Descartes GLN since 2004 to provide seamless connectivity between its customers and trading partners.

“LBMX will continue to expand over the next several years and Descartes is an important component of our growth plans.” said Ian Gray, President of LBMX. “We also expect to grow our customer base beyond the current industries and geographic markets we currently serve.”

Descartes’ GLN is one of the world’s largest multimodal networks of transportation providers and their customers, the company says. It facilitates the interchange of logistics information and provides value-added application services that leverage this information to help enterprises standardize business processes and streamline their logistics operations. In addition to providing messaging services, the Descartes GLN helps companies better manage their logistics book-to-bill process, track inventory, meet regulatory requirements, optimize fleet performance, and effectively communicate with their logistics partners. Over 5,000 connected companies currently manage their shipments over the network.
