The Descartes Difference

Gathering information from stakeholders across the air freight supply chain can be challenging. Businesses have disparate data standards, connectivity requirements, and various systems that makes receiving and transmitting information between air carriers, freight forwarders, ground handling agents, and government agencies a labor-intensive process.

Designed specifically for the air cargo industry, Descartes Air Messaging™ is able to handle all standards and message specifications. The solution is differentiated by its management of data semantics, message delivery and transformation of information pertaining to regional or global operations.

From Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), to direct system-to-system connectivity, Descartes provides a range of unparalleled options to best suit business needs. With more accurate and up-to-date information on hand, the air cargo industry is better positioned to increase transparency, improve efficiency, and ultimately speed the movement of freight.
