Head of Logistics,
Benetton Group


  • Need to benchmark the tariff status towards logistics operators

  • Need to execute a carrier scouting process to get in touch with new players
  • Need to execute structured tenders
  • Need to shorten the time taken to analyse collected data
  • Need the ability to compare received offers

The Solution

To tackle these challenges, Benetton Group has chosen the Transporeon Freight Procurement solution, a lean and flexible tool that allows the Group to execute logistic tenders at the most appropriate times and this makes it possible to grab opportunities that the market offers day by day.

Thanks to the comprehensive database of carriers and the effective RFI system, Benetton Group has been able to select new partners to integrate and interact with in the subsequent phases of the tender.
Finally, the powerful analysis tool allows the Group to analyse in detail and in a very short time each offer received, then create ad hoc scenarios based on the strategic needs of allocation.

Benetton Group has been using Freight Procurement for more than eight years now, both for all maritime flows in full containers and for air transport.
