AB InBev brews up double-digit spot freight savings with Transporeon Autonomous Procurement

After a 45 day pilot proved double-digit savings were possible on spot buying, the multinational drink and brewing company was more than ready to embrace a change. Now, Anheuser-Busch is one of the best spot buyers in the freight market.

Autonomous Procurement helps us provide more freight to carriers. Some carriers will look at spot boards first thing in the morning, some will look at midday, and some carriers will at night. The TNX solution enables them to work within their schedules and provides real-time notifications when freight is available.
