Episode 2: Finding the assignment sweet spot

Find capacity faster and at more competitive rates with a strategic usage of spot buying.

Still turning to the spot market as a last resort? Is contracting your comfort zone?

If you’re still relying on phone calls, email, outdated systems and load boards to find capacity on the spot market, stop!


It’s time to embrace a better, more efficient way to manage your spot loads, trusted by industry leaders like IKEA, Coca-Cola, Pfeifer, ArcelorMittal and Linde.

Our Agile Assignment Strategy series continues with episode 2, in which we’ll focus on one of the most misunderstood and underutilised elements of the agile assignment strategy: the spot market.

You’ll learn directly from our experts how to leverage the spot market to build a highly scalable, agile transport assignment strategy that empowers you to adapt quickly to changing market conditions. We’ll show you - in which scenarios and for which lanes - you should leverage the spot market in order to increase efficiency and maximise savings.

And if you’re already a spot market pro, come along and find out how to find capacity faster and cheaper using a potent combination of AI, machine learning and behavioural science.


You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify lanes that are most prone to benefit from spot buying

  • Automate and optimise spot load assignments within a trusted pool of carriers

  • Set up backup scenarios for rejected contracted loads via spot

  • Reduce manual efforts and operational costs

  • Cut freight costs by up to 10% and reduce empty runs by up to 13%

  • Improve your team's performance and satisfaction

  • Enable operational scalability and business growth

Plus, discover the most recent success stories from market leaders including ABInBev, Pfeifer, Limagrain, Essity, and Lufthansa Cargo.

We’ll keep you for no more than 20 minutes. Come with your questions – stay for the live Q&A at the end when you’ll have the opportunity to get immediate answers, directly from the experts.
