Best matching shippers and carriers though a platform
e-Bid Freight Platform
Two project types for optimal freight procurement
"Spot project" is a browser-based freight procurement and management tool covering various modes of transportation including Air, LCL, FCL, and truck. Shippers can get quotes for a single shipment and compare various rates and service levels.
"Regular Project" is a freight procurement and management tool for multi-shipping. Shippers can use their own customizable RFQ templates to obtain contracted freight rates from individual carriers; one project can cover up to 1000 shipping lanes and support mega-shippers.
In a market where logistics costs fluctuate widely, it is a corporate governance risk to leave cost management to logistics personnel alone. e-Bid Freight makes the carrier selection process transparent, and past quotes can be easily managed in the system. Even if you are not in charge of logistics, you can determine whether your company's logistics costs are appropriate or not.

We have about 500 lanes to bid on, primarily air and FCL; because of the large number of Door to Door lanes, we invite about 20 companies, primarily forwarders, to bid on these lanes. We compare mainly rates and services and award bids to one or two companies per lane.
Bidding is conducted once a year for 10,000 containers equivalent, mainly FCL. As a rule, it is Port to Port, so we invite about 30 companies, mainly shipping companies. Due to the large volume of goods, we conduct multiple rounds of bidding and award three companies per lane.
