Port of Antwerp Renews Descartes Electronic Communications Relationship

[ December 15, 2017   //   ]

Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that the Port of Antwerp has renewed its use of the Descartes Global Network™ (Descartes GLN™) for business-to-business electronic communication services to help accelerate the movement of goods across borders. The solution supports the exchange of electronic data and documents between
port authorities, freight forwarders, shippers, ocean carriers, shipping agents, terminal operators, and other related companies and government agencies.

“We are honored to continue to help the Port of Antwerp simplify the electronic exchange of data between companies and authorities, and to support the port community with supply chain transparency and efficiency,” said Roy van Aalst, VP Sales Benelux at Descartes. “The extensive capabilities of the Descartes GLN provides ports and other logistics communities with a platform for effective collaboration with
all trading partners.”

The Descartes GLN is the world’s most extensive logistics messaging network for multimodal, real-time electronic data exchange. Using the Descartes GLN, companies can seamlessly communicate with customers, trading partners and regulatory authorities, and leverage Descartes’ network-based solutions. The web solutions used by the port community include WebDGN for declaring dangerous goods with the port authority and WebGC for declaring temporary storage with customs authorities. The Descartes GLN also supports a wide array of value-added logistics
services that span the entire shipment management process from contract
management to cargo bookings, shipment tracking, security and trade
compliance filings, and more.
