Spot Freight Rate Bidding

Alpega solutions support the ability to ask select carriers to bid for ad-hoc transportation with little notice – or ask all your vetted carriers, essentially creating your own private bid board. Or, request carriers for a set price for getting goods from A to B, while complying with internal agreements and giving you 100% visibility.

Invoice Control

Conduct a complete audit and reconciliation of your freight invoices, and compare the planned and actual cost of an invoice (and get notifications) when something doesn’t add up. This typically leads to an immediate 2% – 5% cost saving on total freight turnover.
