Tony's Chocolonely Expands Internationally with the Descartes Global Logistic Network
AMERSFOORT, The Netherlands, May 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Tony's Chocolonely, one of the Netherlands' leading chocolate brands, is using the Descartes Global Logistics Network(TM) (Descartes GLN) to support expansion into the United States of America by streamlining electronic communications and order-to-cash processes with retailers.
"To accelerate our mission of making the cacao industry 100% free of slave labour, we needed to grow our business in the USA given the significant demand for chocolate and the presence of key players in the chocolate industry in that market," said Frans Pannekoek, 'Bean to Bar tender' and responsible for the Supply Chain at Tony's Chocolonely. "Electronic communications standards are different in North American and Europe. As an existing Descartes customer, we were able to quickly augment our existing Descartes GLN deployment to implement the new protocols and message sets to effectively communicate with our international retail and distribution customers in the USA."
Descartes' GLN is one of the world's most extensive multi-modal electronic communications networks, connecting thousands of parties in more than 160 countries. It helps streamline, automate and standardize multi-party buy, sell, ship, and pay processes. These processes can involve a broad range of data elements and business documents that often span the buyer and seller of goods, transportation providers, logistics intermediaries, customs authorities and other supply chain participants across different geographies and levels of IT sophistication. Coupled with Descartes' extensive experience in on boarding and activing trading partners, GLN customers can quickly benefit from improved operational performance, reduced costs, and the agility to better satisfy customers.
"We're very pleased to support growth at Tony's Chocolonely by providing business-to-business connectivity and full visibility of their logistic processes from their operations in Belgium to their retailers in the USA," said Fred van der Heide, VP Product Management at Descartes. "Growth via international expansion is an important, yet challenging, endeavour for many companies. Descartes' GLN was designed to help companies manage their global commercial, logistics and customs processes as they grow."
About Tony's Chocolonely
Tony's Chocolonely exists to end slavery in the chocolate industry. The Amsterdam based social enterprise envisions 100% slave free chocolate and grew out to be the second largest chocolate brand in the Netherlands. Tony's Chocolonely was founded in 2005 by Dutch journalists when they discovered the world's largest chocolate companies were buying cocoa from plantations that used child slavery. They turned themselves into the police as "chocolate criminals" who had purchased and eaten illegally manufactured products. Tony's Chocolonely has since dedicated its efforts to educating people about the inequality in the chocolate industry, as well as creating its own chocolate bar as an example of the reality of slave free chocolate. As part of the company's traceable bean-to-bar concept, Tony's Chocolonely has built direct, long-term relationships with the farmers in Ivory Coast and Ghana who grow its cocoa to solve the underlying causes of modern slavery.
