Find sufficient capacities and cost advantages in the spot market. With “Best Carrier” transport assignment, shippers may request bids from all or a selection of their connected carriers. If the carriers have free transport capacity, they make offers. The shipper then selects the right offer to achieve optimised daily freight rates. If there is little free freight space on the market, Best Carrier provides the transparency and market insight necessary to quickly and reliably find the required capacity.
Automatically and efficiently transmit transport assignments and detailed information to a specific carrier. Transport assignment with “No-Touch Order” utilises carrier data taken directly from the in-house system or other pre-defined criteria to execute shipments. The carrier has the option to accept or reject the assigned shipments, depending on the applicable agreement. If a carrier does not accept the transport order by the confirmation deadline stored in the system, assignment can then be processed through “Automatic Carrier Search”.
Assign shipments digitally. Save transport costs and create transparency. With our solutions for automated transport assignment, you optimise your logistics processes and assign shipments to the ideal partner at the best terms simply by pressing a button, without any manual effort.
Fluctuating available transport capacities
Regional and seasonal capacity fluctuations result in rejections, additional organisational effort and higher transport costs.
Lack of market transparency
Shippers often have difficulty finding suitable carriers with free capacity near them. Comparing market prices is challenging.
Time-consuming shipment execution
Transport assignment by telephone, fax or email between shippers and carriers is time-consuming and expensive.
Compliance with award guidelines
Due to inexperience or a lack of knowledge, award guidelines are often not adhered to.
No central overview
