How does a modern seaport retain and attract new customers? How do these, ever so important, logistic hubs remain competitive? The challenge for seaports, and the port communities, is to economically extend their Port Community System (PCS) to meet the new supply chain focus and to enable the processes up and downstream of the port.
The Descartes Ocean Regulatory and Transportation Management solutions combine several innovative logistics cloud-based solutions (Ocean Shipment Management, Transportation Management, and Global Trade Compliance) to address the specific needs of port communities and its customers, such as the international shippers and logistic service providers. The Descartes Ocean Regulatory and Transportation Management solutions complement existing PCSs and links together parties involved in the global multimodal (ocean, truck, rail and barge) transport process, creating a seamless experience for users across the entire supply chain.
Descartes’ innovative solution is set to deliver a service that enhances value to port communities, their members and customers. The Descartes Ocean Regulatory and Transportation Management solutions streamline operations and reduce delays associated with data discrepancies and latency. With one link to the Descartes Global Logistics Network™ (Descartes GLN™), port communities can quickly gain access to the larger international logistics community and multi-party services, and stay ahead of the competition.
Needless to say, seaports play a vital role in ensuring efficient, safe and secure flow of goods. Descartes provides access and visibility to the global supply chain and an understanding of the role of the broader logistics community. The Descartes Ocean Regulatory and Transportation Management solutions deliver enhanced value to port communities, becoming their vital partner in staying competitive and providing more visibility, predictable lead times and efficient operations.
