What Does Our TMS Software Offer? 

Real-Time Multimodal Visibility 

Load status and delivery updates are crucial for customer service and the decision-making process. Thanks to our integration with Descartes MacroPoint, freight brokers can now benefit from in-transit data such as load status, delays, last know location, and ETA. 

Real-time transportation visibility data allows for brokers and 3PLs to forecast future shipments and make rapid business decisions with confidence. Brokers receive automated updates and alerts that result in fewer penalties and disruptions.  

Capacity Matching 

Finding capacity is a very time consuming and tedious task. Manually calling and selecting carriers becomes a pain staking process that results in increased costs, labor, and wasted time. 

Aljex’ data-driven capacity solutions eliminate manual tasks and old-fashioned load boards. Logistics service providers can utilize our technology to unlock access to an expanded carrier and partner network. From here brokers are able automate sourcing and book capacity. The result is increased leverage and efficiency.
