DESCARTES Presence in Transportation Management Software
Descartes focused on acquisitions to widen its product offerings, having led four acquisitions from 2013 to 2015. The acquisitions enabled the company to address the demand for integrated routing and mobile fleet management solutions and strengthen its position in the freight forwarding market. However, they also increased its sales and marketing expenses. In May 2017, Descartes acquired ShipRush Company, which provides e-commerce multicarrier parcel shipping solutions for SMEs. The company has also signed the software development cooperation agreement with SAP SE to provide SAP’s customers with an end-toend business-content network for logistics message exchange between Descartes's cloud-based Global Logistics Network (GLN) and SAP Transportation Management application.
