Werner Global Logistics Uses Descartes' OneView Solution to Streamline US
Customs House Brokerage Operations

WATERLOO, Ontario, Sept. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group
(TSX:DSG) (Nasdaq:DSGX), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive
businesses in commerce, announced that Werner Global Logistics U.S., LLC.
(WGL), a subsidiary of Werner Enterprises, is using the Descartes OneView
Customs House Broker solution to run its U.S. customs house brokerage
operations. The solution helps WGL streamline its customs house brokerage
operations by using a single platform for customs brokerage services along
with Advanced Manifest (AMS) and Importer Security Filing (ISF) filing
services.

"To offer the high level of service that we provide to our customers and
support the growth of our business, we needed a robust, scalable customs house
brokerage solution that could be deployed quickly and integrate within
Werner's global TMS platform," said Dave Brenneman, Senior Director of
Operations at WGL. "Descartes' team of customs experts were able to integrate
the new system, provide training and help make us more productive and
efficient within the first month."

Descartes' OneView Customs House Broker (CHB) solution is an enterprise-class
application with end-to-end capabilities to manage U.S. brokerage
requirements, from entry preparation and filing through to accounting. It was
developed with advanced Message Queue (MQ) capabilities and a direct link to
U.S. Customs and Border Protection so users can easily receive responses and
customs status messages to manage by exception.

The solution is template-driven to facilitate ease-of-use and leverage
existing data. Information entered into Descartes' security filing systems
such as ISF and AMS also populate brokerage transactions in Descartes' OneView
CHB solution to help improve productivity and eliminate additional data entry.
By implementing Descartes OneView, customers like Werner can share the data
common to customs operations and security filings to improve operational
efficiency and reduce submission errors.

"We're thrilled to extend our relationship with WGL and help them to provide
the best service possible to their customers," said Scott Sangster, Vice
President Global Logistics Network at Descartes. "We believe that leading
logistics companies, such as Werner Global Logistics U.S. LLC., want not only
solutions with world-class capabilities, but also the experienced resources to
help them accelerate time-to-value and improve operational efficiency."
