CSX has been an early adopter of the Microsoft .Net platform, and later this summer CSX and Horizon Services will release SEDcaptain, a tool that will enable shippers to automatically create and file Shipper Export Declarations directly to U.S. Customs using the agencys Automated Export System. SEDcaptain will be the first .Net release in the CaptainSuite software that Horizon Services is rolling out over the next nine months, the companies said.
CSX made its announcement at the Eye for Transport Conference in San Francisco this week.
"Microsoft is excited to see CSX Lines and Horizon Services Group developing on the Microsoft platform with .NET technologies. This is an important step for the transportation industry," said Ilya Bukshteyn, group program manager for the Developer Platform and Evangelism Division at Microsoft, in a statement. "Horizon has the proven track record of successful implementation at CSX Lines." "All companies in transportation and logistics, but particularly the small- to mid-size organizations, are facing the same challenges to taking greater advantage of e-commerce--limited resources, limited budgets and limited time," said Duncan Wright, head of strategic sales and product development for Horizon, in a statement.
