Logistical Labs Customers Can Now Use LoadDex to Tender Freight to CSX and Thoroughbred Direct Intermodal Services, Providing their Customers with Dynamically Priced Transportation in the Domestic U.S.
Chicago, IL – October 2015 – Logistical Labs, a cloud-based supply chain software provider, today announced that together with CSX and Thoroughbred Direct Intermodal Services (TDIS), they now offer a complete door-to-door intermodal booking solution as part of their mode optimization platform, LoadDex. Due to a seamless API connection between the systems, LoadDex users no longer need to use disparate websites to book intermodal freight. Through CSX and TDIS, LoadDex customers can combine the cost-savings, capacity, and environmental benefits of rail transportation with the flexibility of short-haul trucks more efficiently than ever before.
Logistical Labs’ LoadDex aggregates pricing information for any given route and 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.
“This first-of-its-kind integration brings LoadDex closer to becoming a fully automated rating and booking machine, similar to Priceline or Orbitz in the travel industry,” said Chris Ricciardi, Chief Product Officer of Logistical Labs. “A lot of systems, including LoadDex, already offer immediate LTL booking. We’re now doing the same thing with intermodal shipping—making it just as easy to book a load.”
