JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX Intermodal President James Hertwig has unveiled a new internet tool that provides freight brokers with 24-hour online price quotes and transaction assistance to win door-to-door shipments available on a spot basis.

Hertwig presented the tool, called 'CSX QuickQuote,' at the 31st annual convention of the Transportation Intermediaries Association in San Antonio, Texas.

Hertwig noted that freight brokers rely on door-to-door transportation solutions, and they need to turn around bids quickly to win business in the spot market. With 'CSX QuickQuote,' users pick the lane, date and time to receive a quote in less than two seconds. The tool also allows users to reserve equipment, tender loads and track them.

"It's as easy as booking a flight on the internet," Hertwig said, adding that freight brokers can "get all the information they need, when they need it, with just the click of a mouse." They can also customize their personal settings with a "Favorite Lanes" feature that provides daily price updates via email on choice lanes.

A video available on the CSXI web site, www.csxi.com, helps potential users understand the benefits of 'CSX QuickQuote.'

"From its design to its promotion, 'CSX QuickQuote' is a prime example of our determination to be the most progressive intermodal service provider in North America," Hertwig said.
