Total Customs Services Improves Operations With Descartes' Cloud-Based Canadian Customs Brokerage & EManifest Solution

WATERLOO, Ontario, April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Total Customs Services is successfully using Descartes' cloud-based Canadian Customs Brokerage solution to improve shipment management, customs filing, security compliance, accounting, and customer service operations. The solution also enables Total Customs Services to effectively collaborate with customers to electronically transmit the advance importer data required by the Canada Border Services Agency's (CBSA) Advance Commercial Information (ACI) eManifest program.

"During the 15 years that we've been in business, Total Customs Services has continually strived to be a preferred trade expert and logistics provider for any company needing innovative, cost-effective and integrated supply chain solutions," said David Nemiroff, Chief Operations Officer at Total Customs Services. "Descartes provides us with all of the capabilities we need to run best-in-class operations and the ability to scale as our business grows."

Descartes' cloud-based Canadian Customs Brokerage solution is an enterprise-class application that handles the functions that a customs broker, freight forwarder or self-filing importer uses to manage their operations. These functions include shipment management, accounting, financial reports, document imaging, e-billing, and tools for tracking, reporting and data entry. The solution leverages the power of Descartes' Global Logistics Network (GLN), which enables brokers to seamlessly connect electronically to shippers, carriers and regulatory authorities around the world. To improve filing accuracy and customer responsiveness, Descartes is providing Total Customs Solutions with an easy-to-configure, user friendly, web-based collaboration platform to share with its customers to jointly complete and view eManifest filings.

"Increasing regulatory requirements, such as the CBSA's eManifest program, and shippers' demand for faster response times and increased visibility are driving customs brokers to adopt cloud-based solutions that allow them to better collaborate with their customers," said Eric Bossdorf, Vice President – Global Logistics Network at Descartes. "We're pleased that our comprehensive brokerage solution helps organizations, like Total Customs Services, better manage the movement of goods across borders, ensure fiscal and security compliance, and provide better overall customer service."
