London, UK, October 19, 2021 -- Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, in collaboration with Extra Logistic Software, a leading software provider for the domestic and international logistics industry, is supporting Magnus Group to streamline its business operations. Following the deployment of Descartes’ e-Customs solution combined with Extra Logistic Software’s Shipping Center, Magnus Group, a long-established freight forwarding, warehousing and haulage service provider, has significantly increased the efficiency of its freight-forwarding processes.

Operating out of the UK, Magnus Group offers a complete range of freight forwarding and logistics services. With a requirement to replace outdated systems in order to support business growth and support delivery of exceptional customer service post Brexit, Magnus Group chose Descartes’ e-Customs solution and Extra Logistic Software’s Shipping Center as a package to modernise and improve usability for the team.

Matt Hope, Director and Head of Freight and Logistics, Magnus Group comments, “Introducing cloud-based systems has provided us with the flexibility to work wherever and whenever we need to and has been instrumental in supporting us through the Brexit transition. Following Brexit, we have increased the number of customs declarations we complete from around 500 a month to almost 3000 a month so it was essential to integrate these systems to assist with the significant increase of required documentation. After undertaking in-depth training with both the Descartes and Extra Logistics teams, we’re now confidently able to navigate the complex customs procedures with ease. As a result of implementing both solutions, the time saved and subsequent efficiencies gained with completing customs declarations has enabled us to grow and develop the Magnus Group team, increase productivity and ultimately deliver an improved service to our customers.”

“It’s great to hear the integration of software from both Extra Logistics and Descartes has assisted freight forwarding operations at Magnus Group. It’s clear that having the ability to easily process and view streamlined data essential for logistics operations has encouraged business growth and supported the exceptional customer service that Magnus Group delivers,” adds Jon Beech, Director at Extra Logistic Software.

Pol Sweeney, VP Sales and Business Manager UK for Descartes adds: “It has been a pleasure to work with Magnus Group to support its customer-centric philosophy and modernisation with our e-Customs solution in collaboration with Extra Logistic Software’s Shipping Centre. This highlights the importance of introducing innovative and flexible systems that boost efficiencies and help businesses navigate critical industry developments such as Brexit.”
