JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL: ShipXpress recently announced its acquisition of the Rail Fleet Management Software Services business of FreightCar America. The acquired business provides software services for railcar maintenance management and car repair billing.

ShipXpress will continue to support all of the current customers of the business without interruption and plans to integrate the acquired software platform with its existing suite of rail fleet management and maintenance solutions. Future enhancements are also planned consistent with ShipXpress’ position in Rail Fleet Management and Rail Compliance.              

ShipXpress has appointed former FreightCar professionals, Seth Crespin to Vice President of Business, Strategic Development and Technology Services and Carol Scarborough to Director of RailSync Shop and ShipX Repairs and Elizabeth Kovach to Account Manager.                                                  
“This acquisition is a natural evolution from a long and successful partnership that ShipXpress has had with FreightCar America. The rail services market is clamoring for ways to drive greater efficiencies from rail assets and improve risk management and compliance. This acquisition is a key piece of our strategy to lead the market with the highest standards for rail fleet management software solutions” said Charith Perera, CEO of ShipXpress.
