WATERLOO, Ontario - Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Atlanta-based Nolan Transportation Group (NTG), a leading third-party logistics company, has deployed the Descartes MacroPoint freight visibility solution to enhance shipment visibility across its rapidly growing North American distribution network.

“Descartes MacroPoint is a vital piece of both our carrier and customer operations at NTG. Our customers can opt to get real-time visibility on every shipment we move. The drivers for our carriers can provide location updates with minimal interactions while in-transit, leaving us with happier carriers who can focus on driving safely,” said Perry Falk, Senior Vice President, Carrier Operations at NTG.

The cloud-based Descartes MacroPoint real-time freight tracking solution gives carriers, brokers, shippers and logistics service providers, like NTG, real-time visibility into the location and status of every load. Using the Descartes solution integrated with its proprietary transportation management system (TMS), NTG is improving the efficiency of transportation operations and communication of in-transit freight status with customers and being more proactive in managing potential supply chain disruptions with intelligent, actionable real-time visibility data.

“We’re pleased that our solution is supporting NTG’s rapid growth and helping to enhance service by delivering improved customer shipment visibility and stronger carrier relationships,” said Brian Hodgson, SVP Industry Strategy at Descartes. “With logistics companies facing greater customer expectations for shipment visibility, having the right technology partner is essential for seamless and reliable tracking services for our customers.”
