Let us help you find them

Freight procurement professionals are constantly being asked to shave anywhere from 3-5% off their annual freight spend. We can help you find it year over year. TenderEasy clearly shows shippers opportunities at hand to execute on savings. Whether it’s from running improved RFQs to obtaining spot freight rates to bringing new capacity and carriers into the mix of service providers, TenderEasy presents a menu of opportunities to find the targeted savings and provides the data needed to plan and deliver improvements over time.

what do carriers think?

If a solution isn’t convenient for carriers, or if the RFQ isn’t reaching the proper contact, they won’t respond. TenderEasy’s ability to attract the right bidder and garner a high response rate is key to its success as a collaborative procurement tool between shippers and carriers. Not only does it encourage carriers to make bids and improvements during the RFQ process, but the tool also saves them significant and valuable time.

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 for spot freight rates, 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.
