Will Freight Matching help me manage my network more efficiently?

Transporeon Freight Matching has been built and designed to help you make the most out of your carrier network and interact with your trusted business partners in a safe and digital environment. It reduces the number of manual interactions and brings more efficiency to your daily operations. 

Traditional freight forwarding still relies on calls and emails exchanges, endless pricing negotiations to get offers on the loads you are trying to sell, and several dispatchers trying to sell the same shipments at the same time. All of these manual tasks, combined with the ongoing capacity crunch and driver shortages, can negatively impact the way you secure capacity. 

Here are just three things you can achieve with Transporeon Freight Matching: 

  1. Maximize the capacity within your trusted carrier network. Optimize your transport assignment process and find capacity faster – the algorithm powering the Freight Matching platform helps you assign the right shipment to the right carrier, at the right price. 

  2. Devote more focus on scaling and maintaining your trusted carrier network. Set up rules to automate the order assignment process to your carriers, and free up time for strategic priorities 

  3. Run everything from one platform. Whether it’s regular or spot loads, tailor the Transporeon Freight Matching platform exactly to your business needs and find carriers every time.  

Freight Matching is here to help you better utilize and expand your available capacity. Managing your carrier network has never been easier! 

How can I as a shipper benefit from freight forwarders that I work when they use Freight Matching? 

Transporeon Freight Matching is a product designed to help freight forwarders digitize their daily operations – but shippers too can directly benefit when your transport partners use this solution. 

Transporeon Freight Matching minimizes risk and brings order to chaotic, traditional ways of working. Here’s how: 

  • Minimize the likelihood of disruption in your supply chain operations with greater assurance that your shipments will only be handled by a trusted supplier network. Transporeon Freight Matching allows forwarders you work with to cooperate with their regular pool of carriers in a trusted and safe environment. 

  • Get end-to-end visibility on your loads. All carriers operating within the Freight Matching platform provide Real-Time Visibility to their forwarder business partners – as a result, you also get to see where your shipments are in real time, even when your freight is cascaded multiple times down the trusted carrier network of the forwarder. 
  • Easily monitor any documentation relating to each shipment thanks to one-click upload functionality for carriers.    
  • Reap the rewards seamless and efficient collaboration between forwarders and carriers. The outcome? Improved utilization of available capacity for your shipments as a result without any additional effort from your side. 

Feel in control, safe in the knowledge that your supply chain operations are running smoothly when forwarders use Freight Matching to move your shipments. 

Will Freight Matching boost the productivity of my operations department?

Transporeon Freight Matching minimizes the amount of manual work and manual flow of information with your carriers, boosting overall operational productivity every day of the week.  

  • 20% more loads per day, per dispatcher – your dispatchers are empowered to increase load bookings by around a fifth, thanks to the amount of loads being booked on the platform without human interaction. 

  • When all your partners are on one platform, it’s possible to leverage a competitive environment in which you’ll receive multiple offers on spot loads, potentially resulting in better rates.  

It’s a brand-new opportunity to unlock an even better logistics experience for you and your customers. Will you take it?  

How does Freight Matching benefit carriers?

  • As standard, as a carrier you get access to all business opportunities from the trusted partners you’re already working with. 
  • Get smarter about how your time is spent thanks to a digital and efficient information flow that helps you reduce data transmission mistakes, and facilitates communication with partners. 
  • Easily upload Proof Of Delivery documents, and claim retention costs where required, directly to the platform. 
  • Increase your profits by easily identifying and bidding on the business that matters to you, based on your preferred lanes and your fleet availability.
