AES Logistics Intermodal rates integrated with Aljex
AES Logistics and Aljex Software announced the integration of AES Logistics rates into Aljex hosted software for quick access by Aljex users. Near-instant door-to-door rail intermodal quotes from AES eliminate the traditional lag time in intermodal pricing for transportation planners and buyers.
AES is a fast growing provider of transportation services and supply chain logistics ranging from truckload and LTL to ocean and air cargo service. ‘Aljex is the leading provider of hosted transportation management software for brokers, carriers, and other transportation providers.
AES delivers excellent door-to-door rail intermodal service. Unlike other intermodal providers, AES generates rates almost instantly, usually in less than a minute. Now those rates are available with a few keystrokes to Aljex users, enabling faster, more intelligent sales and operational decisions.
“Integration with AES provides sourcing for intermodal services with immediate pricing. I have spoken with customers who deal with two of the largest national intermodal carriers and they take 15 to 40 minutes at times to get the rates. Here rates are returned in real-time and include first availability of equipment. Those rates will auto-populate Aljex screens when you search for rates and equipment using Aljex SmartSearch. No additional queries are needed,” said Aljex President Joe Hirschman.
AES service and quick access to pricing can be a boon to Aljex carriers as well as brokers.
“Now Aljex carriers can have 53-foot, door-to-door intermodal service as a ready option when they are short of capacity but need to handle a load,” Hirschman explained.
Bob Schwieger, vice president of marketing for AES Logistics, said, ‘We are excited about this strategic partnership with Aljex Software. They are a leader in the truckload software industry and this provides us direct marketing access to their customers.’
