It streamlines the dock appointment process by distributing the responsibility for scheduling warehouse deliveries or pickups to carriers and suppliers. Electronic document management and customs filing – including air, ocean, ground, customs, and commercial documents such as advance shipping notices, booking requests and confirmations, cargo status updates, tracking requests, freight invoices, bills of lading, originating and derived purchase orders, and invoices. Route planning and optimisation - advanced route optimisation across a wide variety of planning scenarios from territories and master routes through to extremely dynamic routing environments driven by real-time demand. Mobile applications - Descartes Mobile™ Applications provide real time data communications to manage exceptions and eliminate traditional paper based processes  such as proof of delivery to improve efficiency and enhance the customer experience. Road transport compliance management - Descartes SmartCompliance™ software is the smart way to manage compliance with complex rules and regulations that govern road transport operations of all sizes. We look forward to seeing at the show on stand 8040.  If you are not able to attend but would like more information on Descartes solutions simply complete the more information form and we will get right back to you.
