Transport Assignment

The market is in constant flux. The best strategy is to adopt a resilient and scalable transport execution plan. Because adaptability is key to achieving the right balance of costs, services and sustainability to exceed customers’ expectations.

3 ways to assign your transports, matching all the needs


Contracted freight made easy

There is a seamless way to execute contracted freight between shippers, forwarders and carriers. By digitalizing the process from beginning to end, shipments are automatically assigned and forwarded to the right forwarder/carrier. Both get a single overview of all shipments received on the platform. This buys time for people to work on more important tasks.


Smarter spot freight

Nearly 21% of all trucks in the EU are driving around empty, creating far-reaching consequences for the economy and the environment. Making more efficient use of available loading space can significantly reduce costs for both carriers and shippers. Best Carrier guides the end-to-end spot bidding process, making it easier for the shipper, forwarder and carrier by crunching the numbers and suggesting more clever assignments.


Spot freight on autopilot

Autonomous Procurement blows traditional spot procurement out of the water with an approach built on behavioral and data science. Rather than asking carriers to make bids, we propose targeted rates with a high degree of differentiation according to carrier, speeding up the acceptance process by instantly matching walk-away prices.
