The greatest challenges with freight tenders

  • Relationships without rate agreements

  • Time pressure

  • Price volatility of sea and air freight transportation

  • Market transparency and reach


Rate agreements are often lacking for new or infrequently used logistics service providers, projects with new customers or special shipments.

Transports must be assigned immediately for replacement shipments, delays in production or single-unit production.

Without obtaining and comparing a sufficient number of offers, you might pay prices that are too high.

Special requirements and limited connections to carriers make the bidder search more difficult. Inquiries to transport service providers without available capacity are wasted.
