Operative and Strategic Logistics Tendering
More Targeted Partner Selection and More Cost-Efficient Execution thanks to Strategic and Operative Tendering
Selecting the right logistics service provider is one of the central tasks logistic managers have to accomplish. This applies equally for operative tenders of individual transport and for strategic logistics tenders, in which master agreements and tariffs are negotiated with logistics partners and service providers.
Our logistics and software experts have developed modern, web-based solutions that drastically reduce administrative and communication effort – and thus the costs – for all forms of tenders for logistics services.
Reduce Your Administrative, Communication and Financial Investment – and Relieve Your Logistics Managers Significantly
Based on your company’s historical or extrapolated freight volume data, we simulate the effects of new bids, identify weak points and cost driving items in the bidders’ tariffs and strengthen your negotiating position with reliable, detailed bid comparisons.
You can see at a glance which bidder provides the best terms for specific distances, destinations, carriers, weight classes or extra services ('cherry picking').
Improve Your Process Efficiency in Operative Logistics Tenders and Auctions with Web-Based Freight Awarding
The goal of operative tenders is clear: You need to quickly and conveniently receive up-to-date bids for individual transport orders. And you want to award each order to the best partner while investing minimal time and effort.
WebPublishing is an add-on to our transport management system LP2. You are working in LP2 and your requests and tenders are automatically published online to a handpicked selection of your logistics partners (according to carriers, destinations, locations, etc.). These partners get to access the WebPublishing portal via a log-in and can bid on the jobs you publish.
The web auction is the core of the solution, but not its only benefit. You can also use WebPublishing to assign transport to specific forwarders (awarding) and establish a central portal for all of your communication with your logistics partners. You can request transport, upload all related shipping documents and keep track of status information (track & trace) for each order. This way, you keep inquiries and phone calls to a minimum.
