FCS Tradegate2000.com to be Consolidated Under Descartes.com

Since becoming part of the Descartes Systems Group, we have been slowly merging Flagship Customs Services (FCS) operations into the larger Descartes corporate structure. Many of you have probably noticed these changes. On July 21, 2008 we will complete the transition by consolidating the FCS web site (www.tradegate2000.com) into the Descartes corporate web site (www.descartes.com). This move will also mean that access to Import2000 Customs Compliance and other services, now found through the login on the Tradegate2000 domain name, will be located under the Descartes domain name (www.descartes.com). This does mean that some of your business processes may change. We expect these changes to be minor but we want to inform you before the move to further minimize any inconvenience.
To login into your Import2000 and Export2000 account after this date, please go to the URL:
