Freight tender preparations

For a successful tender it is mandatory to have all information in one place in the right quality
Define your standard rate sheet structure and set it up in the centralized rate management. Once the rate structure has been set up the shipment data can be quickly uploaded by Excel import or through interfaces to TMS and ERP systems. Sanity checks will make sure that the data is uploaded in the requested quality. Shipment data updates and rate profile adjustments can be easily done at any time.


Create your freight tender

Follow the menu-guided tender setup process and easily add all necessary information for your tender: Invite trusted suppliers, define timelines, select the lanes to be tendered and share documents.
