RAILPort generates custom shipper reports

Written by 
Bourque Logistics, Inc., which provides logistics software for industrial shippers, is introducing RAILPort™, a web-based tool that allows casers to create and distribute custom reports. RAILPort™ utilizes current data pulled from the Bourque Logistics database.

“RAILPort™ is extremely user-friendly, allowing users to quickly build reports from pre-written queries that span loading and shipment status, railcar profile and compliance, and freight cost and payment templates across all BL software modules,” Bourque said in an announcement Tuesday.

With RAILPort™, a user can select and filter data fields, re-size and sort columns and their order, and set breaks and totals. Users can then define a distribution schedule to others via email PDF, Excel, or “Live-Link”connects that re-query on demand.

“RAILPort’s Live-Link function provides the most recent data that ‘canned’ reports do not,” commented Steve Bourque, president, Bourque Logistics.
