The challenges

These were the challenges that Argus Logistics needed to tackle:

  • Historic bid board practices in a dynamic market create false capacity demands resulting in slower response times and drivers controlling daily market prices 

  • High amount of manual work during the life cycle of each shipment 

  • Carrier compliance 

  • Inaccurate indexed based pricing like DAT (often non-specific to the unique customer needs or buying power) – especially important during a period of unprecedented market volatility

The solution

A perfect match for a set of well known logistics challenges

Autonomous Procurement has been developed to solve a specific and well known set of challenges frequently faced by transportation firms, and in the case of industry leader, Argus Logistics, the solution proved to be a perfect match for their needs.

Implementing Autonomous Procurement to find capacity at lower rates, automate rate prediction and execute dynamic and custom offers helped the company achieve its goal to reduce costs by 17% against the industry bid-board standard and TMS Freight Auction.

The results

End-to-end automation enables Argus Logistics to maintain market-leading status

Incorporating Transporeon Autonomous Procurement into their logistics technology portfolio alongside Transporeon Freight Procurement supported multiple short and long term strategic goals set out by Argus Logistics, including improved carrier compliance, and higher customer satisfaction.
