CHALLENGES

  • Need to benchmark the tariff status with logistics operators
  • The customer wanted to execute a carrier scouting process to get in touch with new  players
  • Need to execute structured tenders
  • Shorten the time taken to analyze collected data 
  • Achieve the ability to compare received offers 
     

SOLUTION

To tackle these challenges, Benetton Group has chosen the Ticontract platform, 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 analyze 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 the Ticontract tool for more than four years now, both for all maritime flows in full containers and for air transport.
