Descartes Acquires Airclic to Strengthen Fleet Management Platform

Descartes Systems Group has acquired Airclic Inc., a U.S.-based provider of mobile solutions that help companies reduce the cost of delivering goods by automating traditional paper-based processes.

Airclic’s cloud-based mobile solutions are designed to help streamline and automate complex “last mile” logistics processes, a key piece of the supply chain that directly touches customers and has traditionally been fraught with manual paper-based processes. Airclic’s Perform platform provides configurable, feature-rich mobile technology and advanced electronic proof-of-delivery solutions that operate on a hand-held device carried by the driver. The solutions help customers  improve transportation efficiency and reduce the cost of delivering goods across a number of verticals, including third-party logistics, food and beverage, retail and healthcare.

“With deep domain expertise in delivering advanced mobile solutions across key industry verticals and proven solutions operating on more than 40,000 handheld devices, Airclic helps strengthen Descartes’ routing, mobile and telematics solution portfolio,” said Andrew Roszko, senior vice president of sales at Ontario-based Descartes.
