ShipTrack was acquired by The Descartes Systems Group in November 2020 after seeing exponential growth in the previous 3 years, and now, plays an integral role in the Last Mile/Courier solution set offered by Descartes. COVID-19 and the associated supply chain disruptions, the rise of eCommerce and ever-increasing customer expectations have all converged to significantly disrupt the courier market. With demand far outweighing the network’s capacity, both established companies and startups are turning to ShipTrack’s technology to help them manage this new reality. We help our customers plan their routes, sort their packages, manage their pick-up and delivery operations, and provide them with the data required to offer an unsurpassed customer experience.
