A balancing act: How trucking companies can find the optimal spot/contract mix


  • Understand lane differences and make decisions lane by lane, rather than adopting a “one size fits all” approach. 

  • Make the decision on contract / spot mix a dynamic one, and update it frequently.   

  • Leverage demand forecasting to improve decisions and predict changes in rate differences between spot and contract per lane.

Matching freight demand with capacity is becoming increasingly challenging, especially in today’s volatile environment. Carriers are rejecting up to a quarter of all contract loads, forcing more Shippers into the spot market. The solution to this imbalance is an investment in network-based transport management systems. New technologies make automated freight-matching possible for both Shippers and Carriers at a whole new scale.

This original report includes survey responses from industry insiders and expert analysis from Adrian Gonzalez, President of Adelante SCM. 


How Freight Matching can increase efficiency for Forwarders and Carriers alike

The roads in Europe are filled with trucks, and it will get even busier with road freight volume expected to rise for years to come.

At the same time, 30% of trucks are moving around empty. 20% of these trucks are completely empty, while the remaining 10% is divided across partly empty trucks. There is literally a tonne (or thousands of tonnes) of room for improvement.


The ABC of Freight Matching

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.


The Next-Gen of ETA Accuracy

The Transporeon Transportation Management Platform has been expanding recently, and this means we can now offer carriers different ways to successfully calculate their ETAs. Many shippers and Carriers rely on RTV offerings from Transporeon Visibility Hub and Logit One because they are great at aggregating telematics, sensor-driven and third-party data. For companies who operate with subcontractors or rely on other companies to execute transports, this type of aggregation is the best and most accurate way to fill in visibility gaps that arise from having data outside your control.


Four steps to smart transport assignment and execution

The way we use the spot market has changed. Get smarter about how you plan and execute transports with a highly flexible assignment strategy. Work your way through our four simple steps to define your perfect mix of contract volumes and spot buying.


We asked our customers: Why spot?

Leading industry players explain why and how strategically managing spot freight is crucial in the current volatile market scenario.
