Aljex Software, a provider of hosted management software for third-party logistics provider brokers and other transportation providers, has introduced Aljex Inbound, a hosted service designed to enable 3PL brokers to facilitate and control their shippers’ inbound freight moves. Aljex Inbound now is available to all Aljex subscribers.
According to the company, Aljex Inbound is a real-world collaboration tool that simply and smoothly links shippers and its suppliers with their 3PL; the 3PL, its customer and the customer’s vendors can share information accurately and easily in one place – all with the 3PL’s oversight.
A 3PL broker can set up limited password access for a customer and its vendors; the system is designed to allow each party to provide information the others need – the kind of information often shared through phone calls. Aljex Inbound is designed to eliminate that phone time, as well as the data re-entry errors associated with working by phone.
Brokers, carriers and other transportation providers can use Aljex Inbound even if they do not use Aljex as their transportation management system, according to the company; loads generated in Aljex Inbound can be transferred automatically to the user’s software via EDI (Electronic Data Interchange), but regular Aljex users who set up Aljex Inbound will have it integrated tightly to their system from the beginning.
