Unique workshop offer: Strategy Assessment – Freight Procurement

Freight Procurement Excellence from Transporeon and Tim Consult

Unique workshop offer: Strategy Assessment – Freight Procurement

In view of volatile markets and economic and geopolitical uncertainties, freight purchasing has become a challenging task. Freight buyers need profound market knowledge, professionally prepared freight tenders, negotiating skills and smart tendering tools to meet this challenge.

TIM CONSULT has been assisting internationally active companies with the procurement of logistics services for more than 20 years. This experience, coupled with profound knowledge of tariff structures, price models and strategic tenders, as well as access to the company's own freight rate database with current freight agreements, makes TIM CONSULT a valuable partner for this complex task.

With Ticontract Tendering, Transporeon has created a high-performance e-sourcing platform that automates and accelerates the tendering process. With a network of more than 40,000 verified and qualified service provider profiles, Ticontract Tendering offers shippers the opportunity to find the right forwarders for their transport orders and to build up a suitable "service provider community".

Last year, the freight procurement experts of Transporeon and Tim Consult have startet to join forces to offer the best possible "Freight Procurement Excellence" to their joint customers.

First successful projects were realized last year. Several successful projects have been added to the cooperation list since the beginning of this year.

Based on these project experiences Tim Consult has developed a special workshop offer, fully tailored to individual customer requirements.

In these workshops Tim Consult’s experts analyze freight procurement strategies, processes, data and service provider communication. The analysis results flow into concrete recommendations for action.

Workshop participants profit from best practices for well thought-out and market-adapted purchasing strategies for all modes of transport and will thus create the ideal basis for procurement excellence.
