CargoWise edi, a provider of integrated international supply chain logistics management systems, announced it has formed a strategic alliance with the Descartes Global Logistics Network (GLN). The alliance offers increased management capabilities and increased visibility to global supply chains for logistics service providers and their customers.
The Descartes GLN is a multimodal network of transportation providers and customers that facilitates the interchange of logistics information and provides services that leverage information for customer solutions to the supply chain management process. The Descartes GLN helps companies better manage their logistics shipment management processes, track inventory, meet regulatory requirements, optimize fleet performance and effectively communicate with their logistics partners.
CargoWise’s ediEnterprise system is a highly modular enterprise-class system designed to automate and streamline the operations and management of engaged forwarding, customs brokerage, contract warehousing and international logistics providers. In doing so, it supports and automates the highly fragmented logistics process that is used by logistics providers worldwide. ediEnterprise draws all of these disparate data processes together to provide operators with instant access to real-time information that enables management to have transparent oversight of global operations at all times.
Through this strategic alliance, CargoWise’s ediEnterprise integration with Descartes GLN offers customers additional enhancements such as:
Carrier booking and statuses
Ocean Automated Manifest System (AMS)
Connections with trading partners
This single connection now offers forwarders using CargoWise ediEnterprise software enhanced operating efficiencies through status messaging versus the timely process of manually tracking freight, and it also offers a greater quality of service in more accurate and timely tracking versus manual tracking.
“Our focus is providing our customers with comprehensive solutions to interact seamlessly with their extended networks of partners and suppliers,” said Scott Sangster, Vice President, Global Logistics Network at Descartes. “Our partnership with Cargowise edi extends the ability for organizations and their trading partners to facilitate the interchange of logistics information, streamline shipping operations and standardize business processes.”
“We are continually updating and improving our products to bring greater supply chain visibility to our customers,” said Cris Arens, Global Sales Director of CargoWise edi. “This alliance brings value added service capabilities to our ediEnterprise module that will benefit our customers and bring greater efficiency to their supply chains on a global basis.”
