Aljex Software, a provider of hosted operations software for freight brokers, 3PLs, and carriers; and Logistical Labs, a cloud-based supply chain software provider, announced a partnership to integrate Aljex’s Software-as-a-Service system with Logistical Labs’ pricing platform, LoadDex.
The companies say the integration will allow Aljex users to make more efficient, better-informed pricing and quoting decisions without leaving the Aljex application.
“When it comes to moving loads, speed and accuracy are extremely important to brokers,” said Tom Heine, CEO of Aljex. “By using LoadDex within Aljex, our users can quickly deliver quotes to their customers that are backed up by the data they’re collecting on a daily basis, without the time lag that comes from switching between multiple software systems.”
Logistical Labs’ LoadDex aggregates pricing information for any given route. This, it says, empowers users to make strategic decisions about pricing and mode selection. LoadDex collects relevant historical, social, and external pricing data through interactive tools to quickly compare and accurately track rates. LoadDex users can analyze multiple years of data—thousands of data points from disparate systems—in less than two seconds to find the most efficient and cost-effective option.
“We’re committed to helping our mutual customers gain a competitive advantage through increased efficiencies and better use of freight market data,” said Chris Ricciardi, chief product officer of Logistical Labs.
