HOW DOES IT WORK?
Steps how to run a freight tender
Freight tender preparations
For a successful tender it is mandatory to have all information in one place in the right quality
Define your standard rate sheet structure and set it up in the centralized rate management. Once the rate structure has been set up the shipment data can be quickly uploaded by Excel import or through interfaces to TMS and ERP systems. Sanity checks will make sure that the data is uploaded in the requested quality.
Shipment data updates and rate profile adjustments can be easily done at any time.
Create your freight tender
Menu-guided tender setup process
Follow the menu-guided tender setup process and easily add all necessary information for your tender: Invite trusted suppliers, define timelines, select the lanes to be tendered and share documents.
Start your freight tender

This is Steven. He is the Logistics Manager of a global operating retail company with 150 locations worldwide. Steven manages a freight spend of around 100 million €.
In the past Steven launched several tenders a year for all modes of transport. Therefore he used self-created Excel files and updated routing details manually each time. Especially the correction of missing and wrong data from the supplier, the price feedback to the supplier and the analysis of the supplier bids were very time consuming and inefficient.
Instead of spending his time on calculating and designing different scenarios in Excel, Steven was able to compare and test different awarding scenarios with SHIPSTA. He reduced his transportation costs, presented the results easily to his management and made the tender results accessible and transparent to all stakeholders.
