No matter what you manufacture, the flow of goods, inbound from suppliers to manufacturing facilities and outbound to distribution centers and end customers, is a critical component of your business. Descartes understands that logistics is an essential component to your success.
Logistics precision and the agility of your supply chain can provide critical competitive advantages and significant opportunities to improve margins. Achieving this can be a challenge regardless of whether you source domestically or internationally. You have to manage suppliers, shipments, resources and commercial documents that are all concurrently in motion with business processes that extend to the edge of your enterprise and well into your trading partners’ operations. Often, working with trading partners (suppliers and logistics service providers) can also be complex because they are numerous and your relationships with them change with market conditions and as your business evolves.
