Selected excerpts from the report

Spot and contract loads cannot be considered as separate anymore. The tense situation on the transport market is creating a demand for digital solutions that equally serve freight allocation for both areas.

Freight forwarders want a protected environment to work with their existing haulier network. They only want to assign transports to trustworthy partners and still retain the possibility to flexibly choose between different hauliers.

We enable forwarders to quickly find loads and capacity from available hauliers within their own group or their trusted inter-branch network. This helps to keep profits on their own side or that of their preferred partner’s. It’s a win-win for both forwarder and haulier!

Digital tools and logistics platforms are an elementary component for the competitiveness of freight forwarders. Those who do not adapt their process landscape to the increased customer needs will be left behind by the digital competition.
