|Allegro Announces Enhanced Logistics for Energy Commodities|
Comprehensive Support for Multi-Mode Transport via Truck, Rail, Pipeline, Barge & Vessel

For more than two decades, Allegro has offered logistics management software with its Truck, Rail, Pipeline, Barge and Vessel components.

With the ability to see intermodal logistics in a single view, this Allegro 8 component provides:
