Descartes Systems Group announced that it has acquired Utah-based XPS Technologies. Descartes said it believes that its logistics-intensive business tools and services in commerce and XPS’ e-commerce multi-carrier parcel shipping solutions will be a good combination.
The XPS platform helps customers streamline their e-commerce supply chain and reduce transportation costs by automatically importing orders, comparing carrier rates, printing shipping labels for all major carriers and tracking through final delivery.
“We remain committed to serving the e-commerce market and we believe that scale matters. Combining with XPS adds e-commerce domain expertise, advanced parcel shipping technology and a community of more than 10,000 customers,” said Andrew Roszko, Executive Vice President of Commercial Operations at Descartes. “Many of today’s small and medium e-commerce retailers will be the major enterprises of tomorrow, and our integrated e-commerce shipping and fulfillment solutions are designed to help these businesses through all phases of growth.”
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
“XPS complements our significant recent investments in the e-commerce fulfillment and shipping space,” said Edward Ryan, Descartes’ CEO. “We welcome the XPS customers, employees and partners to the Descartes community and, together, look forward to helping the community manage the full lifecycle of domestic and international e-commerce shipments.”
