JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – February 24, 2016 — Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) is proud to announce the upcoming launch of EZ Buy, a new online price quote and booking system for customers to ‘buy’ door-to-door intermodal transactional freight connecting the Southeast U.S. markets to the South Florida markets. Users receive access to dynamic price quotes, while having the ability to book an order in one quick easy transaction. The EZ Buy tool will be officially released March 1, 2016.
Purchasing freight via EZ Buy is offered between the Southeast U.S. markets of Atlanta, Charlotte and Jacksonville, and the South Florida markets of Fort Pierce, Fort Lauderdale and Miami, by simply entering a pick-up and delivery zip code or city within these serviceable areas.
All freight purchases made through EZ Buy will move reliably and efficiently across FECR’s premier door-to-door intermodal network utilizing FEC Highway Services (FECHS), the drayage and trucking arm of FECR. Seamless overnight service is provided between North and South Florida, and two-day service connects South Florida markets and the Southeast U.S. markets of Atlanta and Charlotte.

The EZ Buy tool will deliver fast access for intermodal customers to ‘buy’ transactional freight connecting the Southeast U.S. markets and the South Florida markets via an easy to use web portal,” said Jim Hertwig, FECR President & CEO.
