Transmate's freight tender module lets you start a tender in minutes. Build tender packages from historical data, upload or data generation; select bidders and send out the tender.
Bidders offer in the transmate platform, allowing to track bid progress and benchmark using the transmate integrated analysis.
Transmate integrated analysis let's you simulate various cost scenarios next to each other. Simple high level calculations to shipment-level in depth analysis can be run (though Transmate's shipment module). Future volumes can be simulated as well.
Switch point analysis let's you find the switching point for multiple carrier scenarios or LTL, FTL trade-offs.
No experience or time to conduct a full tender or RFQ? Transmate's tender support team can take over the RFQ process for you, doing the data preparation, carrier pre-selection, bid package preparation and submission. Detailed analysis reports are being generated for you that facilitate decision making. Optionally simulations can be run to simulate different key decision parameters.
You can track progress with the integrated dashboard and follow along in the progress.
Setting up a tender is quick and intuitive:
Set general information, upload documents, fix a timeline and set contact details
Add requirements, build a questionnaire and generate bid packages from your data. When using Transmate's freight engine integration, your bid packages can be generated in seconds...
Select the bidders and submit the RFQ. Transmate offers a built-in carrier database that allows you to find partners outside of your carrier pool. All partners are automatically notified through mail and receive a sign-in token.
After submitting the tender document, you can track response in the integrated dashboard. The built-in chat allows you to send messages and notifications to each bidder, collect questions and steer the process.
From bid sheets, tender packages and data, you can immediately run simulations to benchmark the various offers.
Optionally you can start multiple rounds from within the system.
