Descartes Takes the Driving Seat to Host Procar’s new Freight Forwarding Solution
Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq: DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announces that Procar International Limited has successfully established its new Freight Forwarding division using Descartes’ hosted Netfreight™ solution.

Established in 1978 with primary involvement in the restoration of collectable motor and racing cars, Procar today offers a wide range of services, from specialist vehicle movements and specialist import and export to third party logistics, event support and fleet management to the collectable and racing motor industry. Operating in an environment characterised by urgent requests and short turnaround requirements, Procar sought to establish its own freight forwarding operations to improve operational control and save costs. It selected Descartes’ hosted Netfreight software to effectively manage the planning and execution of all its import and export shipments.

“Supplying logistics within the motorsport industry means our services have to be fast-paced and adaptable. We require efficient solutions that can provide us with a quick turnaround time and flexibility in the field,” says Shane Merchant, Shipping and Logistics Co-ordinator, Procar. “With Descartes NetFreight, we can provide our own freight forwarding service to customers without the use of third party companies as we have done previously. Not only is this more convenient, it’s also more efficient too. The Descartes solution provides us with a platform that effectively coordinates and controls our global multimodal operations in a timely manner and allows us to submit customs declarations remotely. This service gives us the ability to reschedule and arrange last minute transportation easily and effectively.”

Descartes Netfreight is a fully hosted, web-based freight management and customs solution that manages the planning and execution of import and export shipments. Descartes Netfreight can combine end-to-end freight management, customer relationship management, rates, document management and generation, invoicing and more through a uniquely integrated platform. With the full technical support of Descartes, this hosted platform has provided Procar with the ability to augment the services it can offer its clients, whilst achieving greater operational control and improved costs.

Pól Sweeney, Vice President of UK Sales and Business Management at Descartes adds, “Using a web-based hosted solution allows us to provide customers such as Procar with full support and updates at their convenience. We are pleased to help Procar benefit from our all-in-one application, including leveraging additional value-added customs compliance capabilities.”
