Aljex Software Debuts Capacity Hub for Truck Booking

Aljex Software Inc. has developed Capacity Hub, a new software application to help brokers search for and book freight on trucks.

They can also gauge spot availability and directly seek out capacity, rather than just posting loads and waiting for a response. Using Capacity Hub, a broker can access data provided by various carriers for available or soon-to-be-available trucks. On the Capacity Hub page, the broker enters the origin point of a load. The tool then displays relevant equipment in three ways: a list of available trucks, including mileage between an individual truck and pickup point; available trucks and pickup point shown on a Google Map, and a bullseye graphic which breaks down the available trucks by miles from the pickup spot. Carrier truck locations can come from fleets that regularly work with a broker or third-party logistics provider, and supply data through Aljex. They can also originate from major fleets that have established working relationships with Aljex.
