Some of the benefits that our customers have discovered from the Carrier Bid Management program are :

  • Carriers recognize that your company is investing in retooling your transportation program, and are serious about a carrier partnership, and that your company has contracted with a professional service to manage and analyze the bid. This directly affects the quality of the program that the carrier's will propose.
  • Traffic manager's time is spent in other areas that are more productive in reducing costs.
  • The bid process insures that all information that is needed to make an effective decision is available in an easily understandable format.
  • Professional, dispassionate analysis of your company's transportation needs, and the carrier's capabilities in meeting those needs.

When completed the process will :

  • Reduce your Transportation expenditures.
  • Eliminate loss of productivity from cost shopping.
  • Insure quality partnerships with quality carriers.
  • Reduce multiple carrier pick up and deliveries at your facility.
  • Increase service to your customers.
  • Reduce time spent interfacing with multiple carrier representatives.
  • Increase available "value added" services.
