Spot rate tenders

With Transmate's spot rate module you can send out spot rate tenders for your shipments to your bidding partners. You can collect offers and benchmark these between each other and historical offers. The platform allows you to set deadlines and configure bidding options.

You can group shipments in single request. Spot rate tenders are calculated alongside pre-tendered freight.

Integrated analysis

Transmate integrated analysis calculates all bids alongside historical offers and theoretical costs. Planners or purchasers can easily see what offers are best and select these in the shipments.

  • Bids converting different currencies
  • Benchmark vs historical or theoretical rates
  • Automate bidder selection given business rules

Integration & automation

Transmate's spot rate request system can be used as:

  • Part of the Transmate TMS
  • Integrated service for your TMS
    (shipments are transferred, bids are tracked in Transmate)
