Descartes Systems Group: Bring Cargo Uses Descartes for EU Union Customs Code Compliance

LONDON, May 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX)
(TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in
commerce, announced that Bring Cargo UK Ltd., a transport and logistics
supplier, is using the cloud-based Descartes e-Customs(TM) solution to help
ensure compliance with the European Union's (EU) new Union Customs Code (UCC)
legislation that came into effect on May 1, 2016.

"To keep our customers' goods flowing seamlessly, it's critical to keep up
with international trade and supply chain process changes driven by programs
such as the UCC," said Steve Gorrod, Operations Manager at Bring Cargo.
"Descartes is an important partner in the compliance process, helping us to
stay current with evolving regulatory requirements."

Descartes e-Customs is a secure, web-based solution that helps shippers and
logistics service providers submit data to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs
(HMRC) and other government agencies from an easy-to-use web interface. The
solution streamlines customs compliance workflow with template-driven
declarations and the ability to copy and re-use previous declarations and
client-specific data. There are also multiple application options available
to support the needs of both small and large operations.

Descartes e-Customs has helped Bring Cargo reduce costs by automating and
simplifying its end-to-end customs declaration process and minimizing IT
infrastructure expenditures through the cloud-based deployment. In addition,
it also enables Bring Cargo to remotely resolve problems that can occur when
shipping on weekends, a key Bring Cargo service differentiator.

The UCC is an update to customs legislation across the EU. The initiative aims
to modernize trade by moving to more electronic formats to standardize
customs procedures, synchronize processes across member states, introduce new
simplified cross border procedures, provide companies with more clarity on
tariff classifications, and reduce paperwork. Descartes' portfolio of
European customs compliance solutions helps traders, brokers and forwarders
keep pace with changing regulations such as the UCC. More information on the
UCC is available at Descartes' online UCC Resource Centre.

To help further UCC preparedness, Descartes is participating at Multimodal
2016, one of the UK and Ireland's premier freight transport, logistics and
supply chain management events, taking place May 10-12, 2016, in Birmingham.
Martin Meacock, Director of Product Management at Descartes, will be speaking
as part of a panel of experts assembled for theEU New Union Customs Code
Explained
workshop on May 11, 2016, at 10:30 AM GMT. Attendees can also meet with
Descartes' domain experts at stand #1308 during exhibit hours.

"We're pleased to help Bring Cargo keep pace with UCC compliance changes,
achieve significant savings and offer superior service," said Pol Sweeney,
Vice President of UK Sales and Business Management at Descartes. "Customers
benefit from the deep customs domain expertise at Descartes and our robust
compliance solutions designed to help logistics services providers, like
Bring Cargo, keep shipments moving efficiently while keeping pace with
ever-changing customs and cargo security requirements."
