ALK Technologies, Inc. announced that Aljex Software, Inc., 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, New Jersey, offers a full 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 revolutionary load matching and tendering system. Aljex customers include the brokerage operations of FedEx, Trinity Transport and Dart Advantage, among many others.
According to Tom Heine, President of Aljex, integration allows his brokerage customers to use the power of PC*Miler as they quote, dispatch loads and provide supply chain data to customers. Beyond routing and mileage calculations, Aljex customers can also access ALK’s XML-based mapping, “something we use and love,” Heine said.
“We are very pleased to offer PC*Miler integration for the convenience of our customers. PC*MILER is preferred by many of our customers, which include the top truckload brokerage companies, as well as by their shipper clients. Integration enables them to access PC*Miler data and functionality within the Aljex software they use to operate day to day. It’s a time saver and a work quality enhancement for the growing brokerage sector we serve,” Heine added.
“We’re excited about this new interface. Aljex serves truckload brokers large and small with high-quality solutions. PC*Miler integration with Aljex is natural because ALK serves the entire North American transportation industry, and truckload brokerage is a critical sector,” said Craig Fiander, Senior Director, Marketing for ALK.
PC*Miler will provide Aljex customers – and the carriers they use – with accurate truck-specific routing and mileage, while respecting commercial restrictions based on 13 foot-6 inch height, 80,000 pound gross weight and widths of 96 inches as well as 48 and 53 foot/102 inch trailer lengths. PC*Miler|Streets is also compatible, providing over 140 million U.S. addresses and 30 million nationwide Canadian addresses. The database contains over 1 million miles of recently updated map data, including major road construction projects.
