Let technology do the heavy-lifting.
Service quality, time and cost, are the key performance indicators of a successful procurement process.
Companies often struggle to score points on all KPIs when it comes to spot-buy freight. Time is often cited as an excuse to bypass a proper procurement process.
With our automated process it doesn’t matter if you invite 1 or 10 parties to quote, both are equally effortless!
That’s how long it takes to create a new request, using smart features like previous shipment duplication, auto-complete and pre-select.
Compare spot-quotes with rate-card quote. Have all the data you need to make a quick and informed business decision, price, transit time, route or freight mode.
No more chasing after providers to have them submit their rates. Set the platform to remind them on your behalf.
Features that can match your internal compliance processes and enrich your data analytics.

Upload or enter purchase orders or cost centers.
Specify the reason of the shipment to improve analytics.
Set inter-company approval levels to be compliant.
Get automated reminders to take action.
Re-use an old request and avoid double work.
Prepare a request, save it and finish it later.
Always have access to your old requests.
Upload and save frequently used address and contact details.
Compare quote across freight modes. Like, regular air-freight versus parcel.
Only work with your pre-approved pool of logistics providers.
We understand that you don’t want to work with just any provider, but only with providers you know and trust.
For that reason you can decide which providers you would like to add your private pool. This ensures that only pre-approved providers can be invited to quote on your shipments.
The selection of providers can be specified per location, business unit, country or region. And we are even taking it a step further where you can define per provider what service you’d like to utilize them for.
For example, you can set it up such that Provider X only receives requests for ocean freight shipments that originate from France. If you have an ocean freight request from Spain they would not be invited.
