ALK Technologies announced Thursday, Jan. 10, that Aljex Software has integrated ALK’s PC Miler software into its full-service truckload brokerage solutions. Integration enables Aljex customers to access the routing, mapping and mileage functionality of PC Miler as they work within Aljex brokerage solutions.

Aljex Software, of Middlesex, N.J., offers a range of management software for freight brokers, logistics companies and other non-asset-based transportation providers. Aljex’s scalable solutions include Aljex Ultra, a Web-based TMS system with SmartSearch, a load matching and tendering system. Aljex customers include the brokerage operations of FedEx, Trinity Transport and Dart Advantage, among others.

According to Tom Heine, president of Aljex, integration allows his brokerage customers to use PC Miler as they quote, dispatch loads and provide supply chain data to customers. Beyond routing and mileage calculations, Aljex customers also can access ALK’s XML-based mapping. “Integration enables them to access PC Miler data and functionality within the Aljex software they use to operate day-to-day,” Heine says. “It’s a time-saver and a work-quality enhancement for the growing brokerage sector we serve.”

“Aljex serves truckload brokers large and small with high-quality solutions,” says Craig Fiander, senior director of marketing for Princeton, N.J.-based ALK. “PC Miler integration with Aljex is natural because ALK serves the entire North American transportation industry, and truckload brokerage is a critical sector.”
