  History
 
ShipXpress was founded in Jacksonville Beach, Florida in 2000 to create web-delivered services that simplify rail logistics and reduce costs for rail carriers, railcar owners and rail shippers.  
To realize that goal, Charith Perera, a 16-year railroad industry veteran with CSX, first joined forces with Seth Maerowitz, his classmate from the graduate business program at MIT Sloan School of Management and an accomplished global finance manager. Mr. Perera and Mr. Maerowitz then secured a leader for the new company’s technical strategy through the addition of Raghu Misra, a senior level software executive with experience at a CSX subsidiary that develops multi-modal supply chain solutions.  The three partners still comprise the senior management team at ShipXpress today.
With the development of the ShipX™ suite of web-based rail logistics software and services, ShipXpress successfully launched an advanced solution that provided detailed rail shipment visibility and performance reporting. ShipX delivered a significant savings in overall logistics costs through increased management efficiency, reduction of inventory lead times and better utilization of rail assets. ShipXpress customers today include several of the world’s largest industrial companies as well as many small and mid-size companies for whom rail logistics is of strategic importance.
In 2005, ShipXpress acquisitions increased the company’s offerings to include railcar accounting and maintenance solutions for rail shippers and car owners.  ShipXpress further expanded its role as a provider of rail industry services with the 2007 acquisition of RailSync™, a web-based transportation management system that was developed by the Association of American Railroads’ technology subsidiary, Railinc.
ShipXpress remains committed to the strategic development of pragmatic rail logistics solutions and plans to further enhance its core suite of solutions through internal development as well as through growth by acquisition.
