Fracht Uses Descartes to Streamline Complex International Operations
Fracht is streamlining international shipment management, customs clearance, and customer and carrier connectivity with the Descartes OneView™ solution suite and the Descartes Global Logistics Network (Descartes GLN)."We strive to deliver innovative, tailor-made logistics solutions that add business value for our growing worldwide customer base," said Armin Frey, VP IT, Sales and Marketing at Fracht. "Descartes provides the integrated technology platform and domain expertise to help us simplify and better manage shipment and compliance processes. We're more productive because we've automated the data exchange between us, our customers, and the air and ocean carriers we use. Today, all parties benefit from the seamless flow of information, improved efficiency, and reduced opportunity for human error made possible by Descartes."

The Descartes GLN is an industry standard for multimodal, inter-enterprise electronic data and document exchange, and provides users with connectivity to customers, trading partners and transportation carriers.
