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,
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.
