Dear Global Logistics Community Member,

We wanted to inform you of an important announcement we made today regarding SAP certification of Descartes’ Global Logistics Network. One of the goals of our company is to standardize and streamline the messages and documents flowing between you and your trading partners. While SAP’s ERP system is already integrated to the GLN, we wanted to take our work a step further. Working closely with SAP, we achieved SAP NetWeaver certification status for integration of SAP solutions with Descartes’ Global Logistics Network. We believe that this certification can result in faster time-to-value for you and your trading partners. We look forward to empowering your SAP solutions with the real-time logistics information you need to keep your company competitive. The full announcement is available here.

We are also pleased to announce that Till Dengel, Vice President, Transportation & Logistics Industry Business Unit, SAP, is scheduled to speak at Descartes’ Global User and Partner Conference, November 8th – 10th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Till has been working with us for several years and has some great insight into SAP’s business network strategy, offerings for the logistics industry, and relationship with Descartes. This is a great opportunity to learn more about how SAP and Descartes, working together, can improve the productivity and performance of your logistics operations. To register for the Global User and Partner Conference go to www.descartes.com/usergroup.

If you have any questions about this announcement or anything else, please let us know.
