Florida East Coast Railway Introduces New Tool
Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) launched EZ Buy, a new online price quote and booking system for customers to buy door-to-door intermodal transactional freight connecting the Southeast U.S. markets to the South Florida markets.
Users receive access to dynamic price quotes, while having the ability to book an order in one easy transaction.
The EZ Buy tool was officially released March 1, 2016.
Purchasing freight via EZ Buy is offered between the Southeast U.S. markets of Atlanta, Charlotte, and Jacksonville, and the South Florida markets of Fort Pierce, Fort Lauderdale and Miami, by simply entering a pick-up and delivery zip code or city within these serviceable areas.
All freight purchases made through EZ Buy will move reliably and efficiently across FECR’s premier door-to-door intermodal network utilizing FEC Highway Services (FECHS), the drayage and trucking arm of FECR. Seamless overnight service is provided between North and South Florida, and two-day service connects South Florida markets and the Southeast U.S. markets of Atlanta and Charlotte.
“We are consistently developing technologies to enhance our customers’ experience and the services we provide,” said Jim Hertwig, FECR president and CEO. “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.”
