"Most FTZ software contemplates that the licensee, typically a manufacturer or importer, will be the only user. Descartes separates itself from all other vendors by offering a solution that already includes the logic whereby 3PLs can use the software to service multiple customers simultaneously. It is flexible, easily integrated and offers maximum automation, allowing us to handle high-volume clients. Compliance was a primary factor in selecting Descartes’ FTZ solution."
