Aljex Software announced that more than $1 billion of available loads were posted to the Aljex Load Board during 2010 – the board’s second full year of operation.
The Aljex Load Board, launched in the 3rd quarter of 2008, is available at no charge to all Aljex customers. Carriers can access the Aljex Load Board free whether or not they are Aljex customers at http://www.aljex.com/loadboard.php.
Aljex is a provider of hosted software for carriers, freight brokers, and 3PLs — including many of America’s best, most financially stable freight intermediaries. Carriers are assured that every load on the Aljex Load Board comes through an Aljex customer. Most Aljex brokers and 3PLs are members of the Transportation Intermediaries Association, which sets high standards for membership. Problem brokers, who can post to other boards for a small fee, cannot post on Aljex, the company says.
“We’re making the business of transportation faster and easier to conduct,” said Tom Heine, Aljex CEO. “The Aljex Load Board takes that process a step further by making sure that all of the posted loads are ‘real’ loads, because they come directly from the Aljex 3pl’s dispatch screens.”
When a carrier posts available equipment to the load board, Heine said, it will automatically show up as a match in brokers’ Aljex systems.
Since Aljex software is hosted – provided over the Internet – the thousands of loads generated by Aljex customers every day are made available to carriers. As part of the Aljex service, all broker and carrier customers also can — at their option — automatically post loads to the major commercial, North American load boards.
