WATERLOO, Ontario, Feb. 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (TSX:DSG) (Nasdaq:DSGX) announced that Panalpina Group has expanded its relationship with Descartes by selecting Descartes' Cargo 2000 solution to help it comply with business process and automation standards established by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Panalpina Group recently joined the Cargo 2000 initiative as part of its commitment to constant improvement.

Cargo 2000, an industry initiative led by IATA, aims at standardizing processes that improve efficiencies for the worldwide air cargo industry. Descartes has supported IATA's Cargo 2000 initiative since 1998 and provides a highly effective offering that helps users comply with Cargo 2000 certification requirements.

The Panalpina Group, headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, is a leading supplier of forwarding and logistics services, specializing in end-to-end supply chain management solutions and intercontinental air freight and ocean freight shipments. Descartes' Cargo 2000 solution provides Panalpina Group with a management tool to comply with Cargo 2000 requirements. Information provided by the system such as quality report compilation, shipment status, exception alerts, route map creation and departure time reporting, allow the monitoring of shipments at master air waybill level from airport to airport.

"Panalpina has always prided itself on using state-of-the-art technology to provide our customers with integrated door-to-door services tailored to their individual needs," said Rolf Bosselaar, Global Head Standards & Governance Air Freight at Panalpina Group. "Descartes has provided excellent services to us for many years and presented us with an impressive and competitive business case. Descartes' advanced and integrated Cargo 2000 solution not only ensures complete compliance but also allows us to maximize management and control of Panalpina air shipments."

"Panalpina Group is a valued Descartes customer, and we are excited about strengthening our long-term relationship," said Ed Ryan, Executive Vice President, Global Field Operations at Descartes.
