Trade Data: The Definitive Solution for Lead Generation

Targeting quality leads is a top priority for many Logistics Service Providers (LSPs). However, it can be challenging to locate the right opportunities from large volumes of trade data. There is simply too much information! A solution is required that can quickly refine trade data and provide lead lists in an easy-to-use format. 

We are pleased to launch Descartes Lead Generator™, a web-based solution that delivers actionable insight from U.S. maritime import and export information.

Descartes Lead Generator helps LSPs find the most relevant leads by U.S. company and location, carrier, international trading partner, trade lane, Less-than-Container Load (LCL), Full-Container-Load (FCL), Harmonized System (HS) code, and more. Tailored lead results can be easily downloaded to Microsoft Excel® for distribution to business development teams. 

What’s different about Descartes Lead Generator is its powerful refinement functionality. This means that users do not need to comb through detailed bill-of-lading (BOL) records. Instead, it’s easy to jump directly to a dashboard of profiles that can be dynamically filtered with a click.  

For example, simply select a state, and the interactive display automatically updates to show only those shippers or importers in that location. The top carriers, Non-Vessel Owning Common Carriers (NVOCCs), U.S. and foreign ports, products imported or exported, Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) volume, percent gross tonnage, and many other details simultaneously refresh in tandem.
