JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwired - August 12, 2016) - Florida East Coast Railway has expanded access to their EZ Buy tool through Softmodal's, web-based dynamic pricing software, to provide optimal rating and routing of rail and truck shipments. This allows mutual customers to access FECR intermodal rates directly within Softmodal via FECR's online portal EZ Buy.

This expansion allows for easier route and mode optimization for customers as EZ Buy provides an online price quote and booking system for customers to 'buy' door-to-door intermodal transactional freight connecting the Southeast U.S. markets and South Florida markets.

"Having our intermodal rates on Softmodal's pricing software is another value-added convenience for customers to see both rate and capacity options and determine the best mode of transport," said James R. Hertwig, Florida East Coast Railway President & CEO.
