Carriers and freight forwarders often struggle with a large amount of freight RFP / RFQ invitations that are being send out by shippers. Main reason for this are the legacy systems that are behind these tendertool.ahabr.techs.

Global burden for carriers and forwarders


Carriers / 3PL’s receive in general too many tendertool.ahabr.techs. some of which are interesting, but many occasions, the invitations are not very well defined. The main 2 reasons for this:

  • Carrier has been picking from a huge (non-specified) database
  • Freight platform from shippers side require a lot of work

Moreover, very few shippers take the effort to contact carriers beforehand. As a result, it feels like the invitation for a particular freight could be just another benchmark exercise. And naturally, carriers are not very fond to participate in benchmarking projects.



So far the general problems. Let’s review some more in-depth freight RFI and freight RFQ issues that scare carriers off:

  • The shipper does not allow a well-defined Q&A
  • Shippers’ guidelines were too vague which leads to a conclusion that you had no clue about what you were doing
  • Client selected the carrier from a database offered by a procurement company; carriers know they are one out of many
  • The project was way too big, it leads to a believe that smaller carriers do not have a chance
  • The shipper had people run the who do not have real transport experience
  • The shipper tendertool.ahabr.techs every year the same lanes: no money to be made, carriers avoid that
  • Shipper runs a global that is not interesting for all parties involved

One of the takeaways our logistics team of experts noticed was that the logistics industry has gotten way behind other industries. In many other forms of sourcing, such as packaging or indirect spend, companies are making use of technology, often called e-sourcing, for quite some time now. But just like other components of transportation (freight rate visibility), the freight process is still a process ruled by legacy systems and excel-based approaches. At TenderTool, we are making changes to that! We have created our own freight sourcing platform, enhancing the whole process for shippers and carriers!
