Manuport Logistics Uses Descartes for SOLAS Compliance
"The long-standing relationship Manuport has with Descartes played an important role in our selection of the Descartes VGM solution; however, it was the rapid implementation capabilities that really differentiated Descartes," said Luc Geerts, Strategic Accounts Manager at Manuport Logistics. "In addition, Descartes has an impressive track record in networked communication and the Descartes VGM solution uses a similar Descartes standard message format as we do for managing shipments. In the maritime industry where messaging standards are limited, Descartes greatly simplifies the process of communicating with different stakeholders in our supply chain."
The Descartes VGM solution offers VGM compliance with connectivity via the Descartes Global Logistics Network(TM) (Descartes GLN(TM)), and connects to the largest number of ocean carriers available in the industry. In addition, Descartes VGM enables customers to reuse existing connectivity to send bookings and shipping instructions, receive status messages in return and more. A single communications channel helps eliminate the need to access multiple carriers and streamlines communication across systems. Manuport has used the Descartes GLN for many years to manage electronic data exchange for customer orders, ocean carrier bookings, shipping instructions and container status messages.
"We are pleased to be part of Manuport's ongoing commitment to enhancing the value it delivers to its customers," said Eric Geerts, Director of Product Management, EU Customs, Ports & Ocean Shipment Services at Descartes. "As part of our end-to-end connectivity and shipment management solution offerings, we help logistics service providers, like Manuport Logistics, seamlessly connect with carriers and non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCC) to facilitate SOLAS compliance and run efficient operations while effectively keeping pace with changing industry mandates and regulations."
