A. Duie Pyle Chooses Descartes For LTL Solution

Descartes Solution Offers Integrated Approach for Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) Transportation Planning, Routing and Dispatch

WATERLOO, Ontario, Feb. 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group announced that A. Duie Pyle, Inc. (Pyle) selected Descartes' Area Planner and Route Planner, both part of Descartes' Mobile Resource Management solution set, to seamlessly integrate planning, routing and dispatch needs for its less-than-truckload (LTL) services.

A. Duie Pyle provides a broad range of transportation services including LTL, truckload transportation, contract and public warehousing, and third-party logistics services.

Pyle selected Descartes Area Planner and Descartes Route Planner following an extensive market scan and evaluation of available solutions. Over the past 6 months, Descartes experts worked closely with Pyle staff to ensure a smooth integration, identifying and testing integration points and performing exhaustive tests at one of Pyle's most advanced terminals. The results proved a high return-on-investment for the selected tools.

Descartes Area Planner, specifically designed for LTL carriers, small package carriers and couriers, uses simulation, design, and modeling exercises to help improve pick-up and delivery operations. Descartes Route Planner uses the model from Area Planner for daily routing, dispatching, and plan-versus-actual tracking of pick-up and delivery operations. Combined, the two systems can help LTL carriers, like Pyle, improve truck utilization and reduce operating costs.

"This is a milestone project and a significant development in our continuous efforts of improving our operations and customer service. Descartes has a strong track-record in the LTL space and a sound understanding of our industry. We've selected Descartes as a partner because of their long-term strategy for the LTL industry and because their solution effectively addresses the unique complexity that LTL carriers face in managing high-density networks with a high degree of variability on a daily basis," said Steve O'Kane, President, A. Duie Pyle.

"Pyle is a leader in providing consistent excellence in the transportation industry and an excellent example of what an LTL carrier can achieve in a highly competitive market. We're pleased that, after a highly competitive evaluation of available options, A. Duie Pyle partnered with Descartes. We look forward to working with them in the future," said Art Mesher CEO at Descartes.
