“Customer service is of paramount importance to Sears Holdings, our members and customers. We continue to make investments to remain a leader in home delivery.

> Sears Holdings - Jeff Starecheski- Vice President Logistics

“We believe we will generate significant efficiency gains and cost savings by automating inefficient manual processes and moving away from disparate systems. Improving command of our inbound and outbound transportation operations is critical for our business. Descartes’ domain expertise and cloud-based solutions helped us plan and implement a technology deployment strategy that efficiently scaled across our distribution operations.”
> Cabela’s -Eric Sylvester, Director of Logistics

“Core-Mark was looking for a partner who could provide superior and cost-effective telematics and driver compliance capabilities integrated with routing and mobile solutions. We selected Descartes because we are already using their route planning solutions, and they quickly emerged as the clear leader for the comprehensive solution we required.”
