National Airlines has signed up with Descartes Systems Group to use its Descartes Velocity Mail (vMail) product to simplify mail transportation.
The cloud-based Descartes vMail solution is a mail tracking system, automating the air mail shipment tracking process from route generation to account reconciliation, to simplify operational processes and improve efficiency for air carriers, ground handlers and postal authorities.
Combining Descartes vMail with the Descartes Global Logistics Network, air carriers have one platform the lifecycle of all shipments, including parcel packages and larger cargo.
The combined solutions help carriers to meet additional security requirements that many countries have introduced, including the Air Cargo Advance Screening Program affecting shipments arriving in the US from a foreign location.
National Airlines business development manager – government and defense, Ryan Dereska says: “With Descartes vMail, we have a quality mail solution that enables us to better manage and grow our business. We’ve enhanced the service we provide to all parties through real-time access to shipment and delivery status, the ability to view consignments and manage account reconciliation.”
Descartes Global Logistics Network vice president, Scott Sangster says: “We’re pleased that Descartes vMail is assisting National Airlines to increase the efficiency of its mail transportation operations. International e-commerce continues its strong growth, driving greater demand for air mail transportation and tracking. Descartes can help air carriers, their logistics partners and postal authorities keep pace with that growth.”
