Descartes Systems Group, a global on-demand software-as-a-service (SaaS) logistics solutions provider, has extended its relationship to provide Delta Cargo with technology underlying Delta Cargo’s electronic air freight booking portal at deltacargo.com.
Delta Cargo has selected Descartes’ GF-X Private Label solution to support deltacargo.com, a Delta-branded electronic booking portal for major freight forwarders and known shippers working with Delta Cargo. Deltacargo.com has been enhanced to offer full international route and product offerings in addition to Delta Cargo’s domestic freight booking service. Shippers may also book dangerous goods, human remains and pets through the portal.
Delta Cargo customers can use the private-label solution to book cargo through the www.deltacargo.com web site and query their shipment needs. The system responds with details on available cargo capacity and rates. When a cargo reservation is made online through the Delta Cargo web site, an electronic confirmation is delivered to the customer. Freight allocations can also be booked through deltacargo.com.
“We have been a long-time customer of the GF-X Exchange. Extending our relationship with Descartes to include a private-label portal is a natural progression for Delta and a commitment of our brand and service to our customers,” said Neel Shah, vice president of Delta Cargo. “Descartes’ GF-X Private Label allows us to provide advanced electronic booking functionality, any time day or night, for our customers using a cost effective and proven solution. This is an important part of our continued commitment to service our customers.”
