ShipXpress of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, the innovative freight logistics company, has introduced ShipXpress EBOL (Electronic Bill of Lading), which streamlines the billing process for rail shippers. Instead of entering information on multiple websites, which can be cumbersome, shippers can manage all their work from one.

The Bill of Lading, the quintessential document for rail shipments, which provides all the essential information to ensure the timely and proper delivery of a company's shipments, was in need for an overhaul. Done! ShipXpress of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, the innovative freight logistics company, has introduced ShipXpress EBOL (Electronic Bill of Lading), which streamlines the billing process for rail shippers. Instead of entering information on multiple websites, which can be cumbersome, shippers can manage all their work from one.

Shippers who have implemented ShipXpress EBOL report saving time and money as well as reducing errors. One shipper reported saving his plant operations personnel over two hours per day at each plant. Implementation is easy and can be accomplished in as little two weeks. A company's existing usage patterns can be easily transferred to ShipXpress EBOL reducing implementation time.

With ShipXpress EBOL rail shippers can create, transmit and retain the vital information; delivering critical data directly to the proper railroad through the EDI 404 format (the industry standard) and provide users with acknowledgment of receipt and acceptance. Shipment information can originate from any number of applications, including order management systems even utilizing programs, such Excel, with a simple cut and paste function. It ensures data accuracy and reduces errors by validating the information against Industry Reference Files (IRF) including hazardous material information. ShipXpress EBOL allows users to organize their information according to their own patterns of usage, such as requiring only the addition of the data pertinent to that shipment on that day - even unit trains. Bill of Lading information can be e-mailed to customers, trading partners and others at the discretion of the user. ShipXpress EBOL also creates a historical data base of information.
