Florida East Coast Railway to offer new intermodal booking tool online

Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) next month will launch a new online price quote and booking system for customers to schedule intermodal freight service between the Southeast U.S. and south Florida markets, the company announced yesterday.

The new tool, called EZ Buy, is designed to enable customers to get price quotes and book an order in one transaction, FECR officials said in a press release.

Available starting March 1, the tool will be offered between the Southeast U.S. markets of Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C.; and Jacksonville, Fla., and the south Florida markets of Fort Pierce, Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Customers will be able to enter a pickup and delivery ZIP code or city within those service areas.

Freight purchases made through the tool will move across FECR's intermodal network using FEC Highway Services, which is the regional railroad's drayage and trucking arm.

"We are consistently developing technologies to enhance our customers' experience and the services we provide," said FECR President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Hertwig. "The EZ Buy tool will deliver fast access for intermodal customers to 'buy' transactional freight connecting the Southeast U.S. markets and the south Florida markets via an easy-to-use web portal."
