Transporeon supports billions of dollars of sourcing transactions for more than 12,000 RFP events each year through its Ticontract transportation procurement platform . How do you secure your piece of this business? Simply set up an account on the Ticontract platform so that shippers can find you. It’s free for carriers and, if you provide a highly detailed profile, shippers are more likely to invite you to participate in suitable RFQs. For example, specify your preferred operational radius, available vehicle types, specializations (such as retail distribution) and more.
Take a look at our recent shipper case studies to discover some of the 1,200 companies that already use Transporeon to manage their transportation needs. To win new business, simply ask that shipper’s logistics department to activate you as a carrier on their platform. Once you have built up your own shipper network, you can bid for any new shipments that are published by these companies.
Now that we’re using Transporeon, our job has been streamlined due to how user-friendly and efficient it is. Our old system wasn’t as clean, and it was a lot more difficult and time consuming to use.”

Manual processes are unsustainable. Inevitably, manual effort used to negotiate and confirm freight orders over phone or email increases the risk of something going wrong – for example, someone may forget to log a new rate or may enter incorrect or duplicate information.
By using logistics management software and efficient digital processes, the cost and effort associated with managing shipments can be reduced considerably. Communicate and collaborate with your shippers in real time while you engage in more strategic, value-added activities.
If you want to enable end-to-end digitization in a way that is highly secure and highly reliable, we can link your in-house IT system directly to the Transporeon platform. More than 1,000 carriers around the globe have chosen to seamlessly transfer data via a direct connection to Transporeon.
Our digital dock scheduling system allows you to book your preferred loading/unloading times for each shipment. Punctual drivers typically experience short waiting times and a fast turnaround, allowing carriers to adhere to federally mandated Hours of Service (HoS) rules by reducing wait times and optimizing truck utilization.
Each time a shipper publishes an order on a Transporeon platform, every connected carrier in the shipper’s closed pool is able to see all relevant information at the same time and has a fair chance of winning this new business. If your bid is the most suitable according to the shipper’s criteria – which could be your availability, relevant experience and vehicle type, as well as your price – you will win the order.
Digital processes enable easier, faster payment. All the information you need for each completed shipment is stored in a single, easy-to-access file. This includes the negotiated rates, details of any extra costs incurred, electronic signatures, photo evidence of shipment damage and more. You get to check every item and give feedback before a self-billing invoice is issued by the shipper’s accounting department, minimizing the risk of billing an incorrect amount. And best of all, this logistics software makes sure you get paid fast!
The Transporeon shipper-carrier network contains vast amounts of high-quality data and our smart tools enable deep analysis of this information. What does this mean for you? With ‘best carrier’ shipment execution, you will receive requests for bids from your shippers. If you have available capacity, you can submit offers for additional business, plan your backhauls and minimize empty miles.
Many carriers are paying closer attention to their carbon footprint these days, as good stewardship of the planet is becoming essential to shippers, investors, customers and other stakeholders. When you use Transporeon, you can plan the best routes to enhance and prove your environmental credentials – these are carrier solutions that make a profound difference.
