National Airlines chooses Descartes software to simplify mail transportation tracking

National Airlines has chosen Descartes Systems Group ‘Velocity Mail’ solution known as vMail to simplify mail transportation tracking activities worldwide.

The cloud-based software is a mail tracking system for commercial airlines. It automates the entire 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.

The carrier’s business development management for government and defense, Ryan Dereska said: “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.”

Both companies say by using the vMail mobile solution, mail handlers can accurately record mail transportation events as they occur to provide real-time visibility.

In addition, by combining Descartes vMail with the Descartes Global Logistics Network, air carriers have one platform to manage the lifecycle of all shipments, including parcel packages and larger cargo.

The combined solutions can also help carriers to meet additional advance security requirements that many countries have introduced such as, the Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS) Program that into effect on June 12, 2018, affecting shipments arriving in the United States from a foreign location.

Descartes vice president of global logistics network, Scott Sangster said: “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.”
