Vertically-Focused Mobile Capabilities to Strengthen Descartes' Fleet Management Platform

Descartes Systems Group has acquired Airclic, a leading provider of mobile solutions that reduce the cost of delivering goods by automating traditional paper-based processes. Airclic’s cloud-based mobile solutions help streamline and automate complex ‘last mile’ logistics processes. The ‘last mile’ is a key piece of the supply chain that directly touches customers and has traditionally been fraught with manual paper-based processes. Airclic’s Perform platform provides configurable, feature-rich mobile technology and advanced electronic proof of delivery (POD) solutions that operate on a hand-held device carried by the driver. The solutions help customers across a number of industry verticals, including third-party logistics (3PL), food and beverage, retail and healthcare, improve transportation efficiency and reduce the cost of delivering goods. Airclic strengthens Descartes’ market-leading Route optimisation, mobile applications and compliance management solution portfolio in road transport operations. For more information see here.
