Global Logistics Network Services
Connect – Communicate – Collaborate
The Descartes Global Logistics Network™ (Descartes GLN™) is the standard for multimodal, inter-enterprise electronic data and document exchange. The Descartes GLN was developed with logistics operations in mind. It is unique in its management of data semantics, message delivery, and transformation of data pertaining to regional or global operations and in its ability to work across wired and wireless technologies.
The Descartes GLN gives you the flexibility to connect and collaborate your way. It was designed to be a network, and is not an application attempting to act as a network. You can seamlessly move or transfer data through the network to your various trading partners, leverage Descartes’ network-based solutions or connect to your existing solutions. This inherent flexibility of the Descartes GLN gives you the ability to create logistics business processes to operate or to differentiate yourself from the competition.
A continuously growing community (over 220,000 connected parties in more than 160 countries) leverages Descartes’ broad array of connectivity, document management and community services.
