Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Louisiana-based Dupré Logistics has selected the Descartes MacroPoint freight visibility solution to support the aggressive growth of its brokerage division.

“In two years, we’ve more than tripled the size of our Strategic Capacity Services group and we plan to double our revenue in the next four years. Having the right technology partners to assist us is a key part of our growth strategy,” said Mike Weindel, VP of Strategic Capacity Services (SCS) at Dupré Logistics. “We understand, from experience, that driver adoption and coverage are critical for accurate and timely freight visibility. We believe that Descartes MacroPoint is the right solution for our customers and carriers because it has the highest driver adoption rate and the largest carrier visibility network in the industry.”

The cloud-based Descartes MacroPoint freight tracking solution gives carriers, brokers, shippers and logistics service providers (LSP), such as Dupré Logistics, real-time visibility into load status. Organizations can monitor and evaluate the real-time movement of all their freight in one portal. They can take proactive, corrective action before any potential supply chain disruptions occur. Using this robust, automated solution, companies of all sizes can eliminate the need for time consuming and ineffective check calls with carriers to ascertain load location details, streamline transportation operations, and improve communication about in-transit freight across the supply chain.

“Leading logistics services providers, like Dupré Logistics, are taking advantage of advanced freight visibility to better serve their customers while operating more effectively,” said Dan Cicerchi, Vice-President Descartes MacroPoint Solutions at Descartes. “With greater customer expectations for visibility and increasingly constrained carrier capacity, logistics organizations need a platform like Descartes MacroPoint to proactively manage transportation.”
