TSC Container Freight Enhances Service And Compliance With Descartes' Rail Visibility And Ocean AMS Solutions

Stocks in this article: DSGDSGX

WATERLOO, Ontario, Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that TSC Container Freight, a business unit of The Scoular Company, is enhancing its service using the new rail visibility option of Descartes' IES Web Tracking solution. In addition, TSC Container Freight has expanded its relationship with Descartes by adopting Descartes' cloud-based Ocean AMS (Automated Manifest System) solution.

"Reliable and cost-effective rail transportation is of particular importance in the agricultural sector. The connectivity and new capabilities for reporting on rail shipments provided by Descartes' web tracking tool extend our visibility into shipment status well beyond the port," said Dennis Quimby, Logistics Manager of TSC Container Freight. "Improved visibility into rail shipments is one of the many factors we need to help enhance service and maintain a competitive edge."

Rail Visibility is available as part of Descartes' IES Web Tracking powered by Descartes' Global Logistics Network™ (GLN), the world's largest logistics network enabling leading transportation providers to connect and collaborate with their trading partners. By providing the status of rail shipments at key milestones, the solution helps users improve operational control and customer service. Descartes' Ocean AMS application is part of its Customs & Regulatory Compliance suite. The advanced manifest ruling is a requirement to supply U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) with detailed information on all inbound ocean shipments into the United States prior to boarding a vessel.

"Rail visibility is another dimension of multimodal logistics management that is often missing in the marketplace," explains Ken Wood, Senior Vice President of Product Management. "We are pleased to provide this service to customers such as TSC Container Freight, as well as serve as their conduit for Ocean AMS regulatory compliance. The selection of Descartes' Ocean AMS product builds upon our commitment to customers, like TSC Container Freight, who have already seen success with other Descartes solutions."
