Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Trans-Border Global Freight Systems, Inc. is streamlining shipment management and United States customs entry submission across its operations with Descartes’ OneView(TM) Forwarder Enterprise and Customs House Brokerage (CHB) solution. The solution supports end-to-end planning and execution of international shipments, including leveraging system data to prepare and submit customs entries and cargo security filings to US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

“The speed at which we’ve implemented Descartes’ solution is truly impressive,” said Mark Schmidt, Director of Operations at Trans-Border Global Freight Systems, Inc. “Descartes’ experienced local implementation team has been exemplary in supporting us at every step. This benefits our organization globally and bolsters our success with rapid time-to-value.”

With Descartes’ OneView, shipment-related data used by the forwarder operations modules can be used to pre-populate customs entries, which significantly improves efficiency and accuracy. Robust accounting capabilities are fully-integrated into the solution to streamline billing, payment and financial reporting processes. Descartes’ OneView also includes optional web-based customer facing visibility tools that display shipment milestones, customs status messages and key performance indicators (KPIs) to support higher levels of customer service.

“We’re focused on delivering solutions that enhance operations and deliver rapid return on investment for brokers and forwarders of all sizes,” said George Manolis, Vice President Product Management Broker & Forwarder Enterprise Systems at Descartes. “We understand that effective shipment management and efficient customs compliance are mission critical functions for our customers. Our domain experts are dedicated to customer success with a focus on quick implementations. We’re pleased to deliver value for Trans-Border Global Freight Systems and look forward to continuing to support their strategic goals with our technology and services.”
