AES Logistics and Aljex Software said Thursday the two companies have integrated AES Logistics rates into Aljex hosted software for quick access by Aljex users.
AES is a provider of transportation services and supply chain logistics including truckload, less than truckload (LTL), ocean and air cargo service. Aljex is a provider of hosted transportation management software for brokers, carriers and other transportation providers.
"Integration with AES provides sourcing for intermodal services with immediate pricing,” said Aljex President Joe Hirschman. “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.
"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," he continued.
"We are excited about this strategic partnership with Aljex Software,” said Bob Schwieger, vice president of marketing for AES Logistics. “They are a leader in the truckload software industry, and this provides us direct marketing access to their customers." - Eric Johnson
