Descartes Launches Pilot For Canada’s ACI e-Manifest Highway Mode With Con-way Freight

December 3, 2009 (FinancialWire) — Descartes Systems Group (TSX: DSG) (NASDAQ: DSGX), a federated global logistics network, announced that Con-way Freight, a leading North American less-than-truckload carrier, is joining the pilot phase launch of the Advance Commercial Information Highway electronic filings with the Canada Border Services Agency .

Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Con-way Freight, a subsidiary of Con-way, Inc. (NYSE: CNW), has been a leading advocate of the ACI program as an active member of Descartes’ Americas Customs Working Group, which supports the CBSA requirements outlined in the CBSA’s Electronic Commerce Client Requirements Document (ECCRD). Con-way Freight’s leadership laid the groundwork for the development of the pilot at Descartes and provides an industry-proven framework for other carriers to join the pilot, which is designed to validate operational aspects of this emerging requirement and quantify the benefits from a streamlined, electronic filing process for imports in advance of the formal regulation mandate.

On November 10th, the CBSA finalized its initial regulation ECCRD for EDI Highway Cargo and Conveyance. This ACI e-Manifest initiative mandates that CBSA receive advance electronic notification of cargo shipments arriving in Canada by highway.

Already a leading service provider for reporting cargo data for air and marine shipments entering Canada and the United States, Descartes has extended its Global Logistics Network Compliance service to help the international carrier community comply with this e-Manifest initiative.

Descartes’ ACI Highway solutions are part of Descartes’ GLN Customs Filing & Compliance suite. The GLN helps automate, manage and streamline the end-to-end shipment process, from source to consumer, with ongoing real-time visibility. Descartes’ customs filing and compliance services help companies meet regulatory requirements for international shipments for both international customs agencies and security initiatives.
