Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Blue Horseshoe has launched TRAX, Transportation for AX, to help organizations take control of their transportation plans in order to remain competitive.

Blue Horseshoe said it developed a solution built on the Dynamics AX platform that aggregates and consolidates transportation data, providing "one version of the truth," so companies don't have to access separate systems or use paper-based processes to get the information they need.

TRAX, is a module solution that embeds advanced transportation planning and execution capabilities into a company's new or existing Microsoft Dynamics AX system. TRAX offers a global enterprise transportation solution so companies can centralize their freight planning across their businesses, or separate planning at the site/warehouse level, according to company officials. TRAX is specifically designed to add transportation services so organizations don't have to purchase a separate transportation management system, the company said.

Technically, released in June, the company is currently out trying to entice partners to sell the TRAX solution.

"Pretty much everything in this Dynamics world is sold through a channel so one of my main objectives [now] is to recruit different channel partners to sell it," said Bill Ducat, Director, Business Development at Blue Horseshoe. "We'll also do direct marketing to educate the end users as well and hopefully, they'll ping their partners and we can recruit partners that way, too."

TRAX supports all modes of rating including: LTL, TL, rail, ocean, parcel

rate shopping; least cost carrier selection; contract management; accessorials; fuel surcharge; mileage service integration; inbound /outbound shipments; routing/planning: load planning; order consolidation; inbound/outbound planning; routing guides; constraints-based routing; intermodal; multi-stop; zone skipping; and load tendering.
