ATLANTA, Georgia and LONDON, United Kingdom, July 18, 2023 — Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced the top carriers worldwide using its Descartes MacroPoint™ real-time freight visibility solution to provide industry leading tracking compliance and on time performance across a high volume of freight. Carriers were evaluated based on having integrated Descartes MacroPoint with their transportation management system or telematics system and having achieved a level of compliance and volume among the top 1% of our carrier network during the first half of 2023.
“Nearly 60% of shippers in our latest customer research study told us that achieving greater real-time visibility into their freight is critical to their success,” said Megan Orth, Sr. Director of Commercial Connectivity at C.H. Robinson, one of the world’s largest logistics companies. “That underscores why it’s a top priority to help the carriers we work with automate their tracking updates and to integrate our technology into the tools our customers use. We’re proud to be recognized for providing world-class visibility.”
Descartes MacroPoint is a multimodal visibility platform designed to empower shippers, freight brokers and third-party logistics companies (3PLs) with enhanced visibility to their freight operations and shipments. The platform facilitates improved control and management of the supply chain—offering efficient and high-quality data for better communication and decision-making.
