Control the volatility of your oil, gas and chemical operations

In cost-hungry areas like oil, gas and chemical supply chains, the pressure to do more with less is constantly growing.

Descartes MacroPoint’s real-time freight visibility enables you to push your resources to the fullest, connecting the dots across complex multimodal networks and allowing you to maximize production, minimize downtime, and monitor load temperatures in transit.

Solving your biggest challenges

Maximize production, minimize downtime

With an accurate picture of how your freight moves in real time, you can proactively manage exceptions, and work around delays and disruptions to keep things on schedule. Over time, this leads to more customer satisfaction, and greater profits.

Improve operational safety

When working with hazardous materials, traceability and accountability are vital to operational safety. MacroPoint’s live supply chain data gives you both. Plus, automated documentation makes it easier to comply with rigorous industry standards.

Preserve product quality

MacroPoint’s in-transit temperature tracking alerts you when fluctuations in fluid temperature occur. This enables you to better manage the quality and safety of sensitive or volatile loads, and act swiftly to prevent product loss or spoilage.

Move away from manual work

MacroPoint consolidates all your operational data into one reliable source, and automates communication with your customer and partners. So you can eliminate manual shipment tracking, check calls, and imprecise guesswork for good.
