LTL Software

Our web based LTL trucking software is scalable and easy to use.

What Is LTL Freight?

LTL stands for ‘Less Than Load’. When a broker requires to ship a smaller amount of goods (i.e. just a pallet) and not a full truckload, they turn to LTL freight.

Brokers and 3PL’s who choose LTL are only reserving a smaller section of a freight trailer. Thus, they are only required to pay for that smaller portion, allowing them to save on the costs that come with booking a full truckload. The remaining volume of the trailer will be paid by other LTL brokers who occupy it.

Since ‘Less Than Load’ is separate to full truckload shipments, brokers need a solution to source LTL capacity and attain the carriers who fulfill it.

Why LTL Freight Brokers Should Use Descartes Aljex

Descartes Aljex does more for LTL freight, allowing LTL brokers to view, analyze, and tender shipments to ensure a safer and simpler process.  

Our software eliminates the hassle and allows users to get back to running their businesses while providing brokers and 3PL’s with time and cost related value.

Fewer Shipment Steps

As LTL shipments become increasingly popular in the freight industry, tracking, finding carriers, and refining the supply chain has never been more important. LTL shipments can be complex and time consuming. Brokers struggle to connect with the right software and solutions, which is where Aljex has come in to simplify the process. 

  1. Manage LTL freight with the other truck loads 
  2. Automate manual LTL carrier sourcing tasks 
  3. Streamlined processing with fewer steps to cover LTL shipments 

By integrating all data into one system, Aljex eliminates the need for users to utilize multiple systems. Our LTL software is highly efficient for finding carriers, covering loads, and delivering freight.

Data we include: 

  • Full Overview of LTL Carriers 
  • Performance reporting 
  • Cost/price per pallet 
  • Carrier insights 

Aljex LTL trucking software creates an easier decision making process, users only needing to select the best carrier for their shipment based on our least cost routing algorithm.  

Aljex also gives users priority options for hot loads and tight delivery windows. Choose different carriers at better rates or select faster transit times. The choice comes down to preference and what best fits a LTL brokers cost-driven needs. 

After a shipment’s been confirmed and processed, those integrated with Descartes MacroPoint will receive in-transit event updates and an ETA for user convenience. The result is reduced manual tasks through an automated order process – create a load and tender it (supply load to the carrier).
