Chris Jones, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Services with Descartes, describes the three core components of the Descartes business model, placing Customer Success at the forefront, and explains the technology behind the Logistics Technology Platform.
The Logistics Technology Platform fuses the Descartes Global Logistics Network™ (Descartes GLN™), the world's most extensive logistics network covering multiple transportation modes, with the industry’s broadest array of modular, interoperable web and wireless logistics management solutions. The Logistics Technology Platform leverages the world’s largest multimodal logistics community to enable companies to quickly and cost-effectively connect and collaborate.

Descartes’ Logistics Application Suite offers the industry’s widest array of modular, cloud-based, interoperable web and wireless logistics management applications. These solutions embody Descartes’ deep domain expertise, not merely “check box” functionality.

Descartes’ comprehensive suite of solutions includes:
- Routing, Mobile and Telematics
- Transportation Management
- Customs & Regulatory Compliance
- Global Logistics Network
- Broker & Forwarder Enterprise Systems
Powered by the Logistics Technology Platform, Descartes’ applications are modular and interoperable to allow organizations the flexibility to deploy them quickly within an existing portfolio of solutions. Implementation is streamlined because these solutions use web-based or wireless user interfaces and are pre-integrated with the Descartes Global Logistics Network.
