REZ-1 Showcases New Solutions at IANA Intermodal EXPO
WELLESLEY, Mass., September 15, 2016 - REZ-1, Inc., a leading provider of asset management, equipment reservation, billing and reload services to the domestic intermodal industry, will present its new global logistics applications at the Intermodal EXPO in Houston September 18-20, 2016.
“We are using the IANA EXPO to begin communicating our expanded capabilities,” said Marie Colbert, chief executive officer of REZ-1, who continued, “Whether it is an IMC looking for a 53’ domestic container, an ocean carrier looking for inland container management and reload services, a freight forwarder looking for first/last mile visibility, or an asset owner looking for an M&R module, REZ-1 is positioned to meet their needs.”
REZ-1’s new capabilities include Dispatch Manager, which connects 3PLs and ocean carriers to a large network of motor carriers in more than 60 countries. The solution enables real-time capture of critical shipment events such as POD by mobile app, web or systems integration. Equipment Repair standardizes and automates the M&R process, bringing admin and cost savings to both equipment owners and their vendors.
“Combining technology and services with our parent DCLI’s assets greatly expands what we can do for our customers,” said Paul Crinks, REZ-1 chief commercial officer. “It is a strategic link that unlocks more value for asset owners and transportation providers alike.”
For over 20 years, REZ-1 has provided critical container inventory, reservation and financial settlement services to North American railroads, intermodal marketing companies and motor carriers. With its recent acquisition of IAS, REZ-1 has broadened its capabilities to include first- and last-mile visibility of ocean, air and LTL shipments, global trading partner connectivity, and container and chassis maintenance and repair functionality. Most recently, REZ-1 has developed and implemented a comprehensive special equipment booking system for DCLI Specialty Chassis, a leading specialty chassis provider in North America.
Charlotte, NC based DCLI, one of the EQT group of companies, manages an intermodal chassis fleet of 121,000 units across the country. Employing over 280 persons, DCLI is a major provider of intermodal chassis equipment to the marine and rail transportation industries.
