At TenderEasy we believe it should be easy to run a freight tender.
Our solutions are designed by professionals with several years of' experience in the sector, who worked together to create an easy-to-use tender platform.

Gather the baseline (shipping profile) from your Transportation Management System (TMS) or get access to it from your existing logistic service providers. A baseline is your "current situation", your shipments and volumes being shipped. Check the information to make sure it is complete and accurate.
Create the tender and add information about your company, goods being shipped, hard and soft requirements. All LSPs invited should receive sufficient knowledge about your requirements in order for them to make an offer that meets your expectations.
Add bidding sheets for the different pricing structures you want to run. Use best-practice templates available in TenderEasy, and adjust them to your needs. Make input fields very clear and add instructions. Load current prices to cross-check that they match up reasonably with your baseline.
Launch the tender, and bidders will be automatically invited via email and guided on how to create a secure login on the tendering platform. Bidding process is normally a process that takes some weeks where questions may arise. Share questions and answers with bidding participants in the platform.
Once bids are received, it is time to do your analysis. Run scenarios to try various bid combinations, to maximize the cost vs service ratio for your businesses. Provide precise feedback and run the bid cycle again. During negotiations, the scenario engine empowers you to make simulations !on the fly! giving you leverage.
When final adjustments are received and verified in the platform, you allocate volume and award the business to the selected LSPs. Create your final scenario with the results, share nominated lane allocation with stakeholders. The LSP will see their awards in the platform and it will be the price-list of the agreement.
