Waterloo, ON - Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that EgyptAir Cargo is using the Descartes Velocity Mail (vMail) solution to streamline air mail transportation across its growing international network.  

“EgyptAir Cargo is focused on modernization and increasing efficiency to better support our growth and the rise in ecommerce-driven air mail,” said Cpt.
