Apr 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Descartes Systems Group, a global on-demand software-as-a-service (SaaS) logistics systems provider, acquired privately held Scancode Systems Inc. (www.scancode.com), a developer and integrator of carrier-compliant parcel and less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping systems, in an all-cash transaction.
Scancode adds more than 500 members to Descartes' Global Logistics Network, including, parcel carriers, regional LTL truck carriers as well as numerous manufacturers, retailers and distributors. Scancode provides complementary services to Descartes' broader transportation management solutions with its enterprise shipping solutions that plan, pick, pack and manifest shipments. By gathering information at the loading dock and source of the shipment, Scancode's addition to the Global Logistics Network extends the shipment management process to support “the first mile” of the delivery/shipment and provides further detail and visibility to track that asset.
Scancode is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and has approximately 50 personnel.
