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.

  • Simulation (calculate over your data sets)
  • Switchpoint (find change over points between rate cards)
  • Scenario build & optimization **

Managed or self-serviced

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.
