What Is Freight Broker Software?

Eliminate Check Calls with Real-Time Visibility

One of the biggest solutions requested of digital truckload software is to provide load tracking. Aljex implements real-time shipment tracking and visibility thanks to our integration with Descartes MacroPoint.

With MacroPoint, organizations are regularly informed on the location, status, and ETA for each of brokerage loads, all of which is easily accessible within the Aljex user portal.

Why does shipment visibility matter?

Automated tracking processes have been proven to increase profit margins by reducing check calls and penalties associated with brokers who lack shipment visibility. The result is greater efficiency with less overall cost.

Capacity Sourcing & AI-based Freight Matching

Freight brokers face a common problem, sourcing capacity and matching carriers to ideal open loads in a tight and volatile freight market.

Descartes Aljex and their integration with MacroPoint automates the process by sourcing validated carriers at competitive rates, so brokers make higher profit margins with less effort.

Intelligently match loads to over 280k carriers and 1M+ lanes, based on several factors:

  • Best-Fit Ranking

  • Lane History
  • Specialized Equipment (refrigerated, bulk, etc.)
  • Forecasted Capacity
  • Performance Metrics
  • Lane Score

Capacity matching with Aljex freight broker software will help improve overall operational efficiency, sourcing the right carrier for open loads at a 15x the rate than manual booking.

End Result: Improved Execution & ROI

Descartes Aljex’ freight broker software improves planning and decision making by defining the most efficient transport options, given the importance of a user’s own parameters such as cost, lead-time, number of stops, and more. The TMS automates carrier rate acceptance, dispatching, and EDI.

Follow-up tasks like accounting, invoicing, and reporting have never been easier when everything is performed from inside one cohesive system. TMS users can reduce supply chain disruptions by automating communications and having real-time shipment visibility across multiple parties and modes of transportation.

Users make better lane pricing choices by accessing and comparing historical prices while managing documents through an organized system of document imaging and storage.
