Descartes Import Control System™ (Descartes ICS™) and Descartes Export Control System™ (Descartes ECS™) Solutions
Descartes Import Control System™ (Descartes ICS™) and Descartes Export Control System™ (Descartes ECS™) can help carriers and logistics intermediaries overcome the complexity of ICS compliance by providing a single point of access to manage ICS filings according to specific EU Member States’ requirements.
Our solutions leverage the power of the Descartes Global Logistics Network™ (Descartes GLN™), enabling carriers to electronically connect with brokers, shippers and regulatory authorities around the world through a single portal, without having to worry about data formats or specific member state requirements. As a Descartes global filer offering, Descartes ICS integrates with a wide range of solutions that prepare organizations around the world to meet current global trade compliance mandates.
