Descartes is privileged to work with many pool distribution operators who serve the specialty retail market. These companies are experiencing a severe downturn in their business because stores are shuttered. We also know from other customers that there is still a significant demand for last-mile/home delivery services. We’d like to help those on both sides in these extraordinary times by making available a complimentary list of pool operators that might help those shippers and LSPs looking to quickly increase their delivery capacity with highly-skilled resources.

Here are some of the services offered by the pool distribution operators:

  • Inside-delivery
  • Special handling, sort and segmentation capabilities at all locations
  • Item-level barcode scanning and tracking
  • A wide range of logistics services (distribution, ecommerce fulfillment, consolidation/deconsolidation, transloading, etc.)
  • Many locations offer small package through truckload-level services
  • Regional/national full truckload services

The available network of pool providers is extensive:

  • Over 100 providers with 270+ pool distribution terminals in North America
  • Complete Coverage of US commercial zones
  • Multiple carrier options in all major markets
  • Companies that range in size from a single location to major 3PL's with global end-to-end supply chain solutions

If you need excess capacity, please fill out the form to the right and we will provide you with the complimentary list of pool distribution providers.
