For the logistics manager of the owner's enterprise, the annual bidding project is always a headache. Where can I find a new partner? How to judge the service level of the new transportation company? How to reduce logistics costs reasonably in new tenders? All have to be considered. On the other hand, in the face of new business opportunities, how can the transportation company ensure the benefits and cooperation in the bidding quotation? How can we fully demonstrate the service capabilities? The same is a problem.
Year after year, with these questions and embarrassment, logistics bidding seems to be continuing smoothly. A corporate logistics manager once said: "I don't know exactly whether my shipping cost is too high or too low? I know exactly what my value is." And the carriers have to make frequent orders. Test the bottom line of the cargo owner. In order to break such information blind spots, oTMS launched a freight online bidding system solution. With a five-step strategy "data analysis - visual optimization program - online bidding - real assessment - cost reduction and efficiency" brings a new experience.
First of all, oTMS starts with the actual operation data of the cargo owner, sorts out the layout of the existing transportation network, the allocation of transportation resources, and the freight rate system, finds out the improvement space existing in the past transportation price system, and generates a multi-dimensional “transport view” to provide visualization. Globalized data analysis report.
Secondly, oTMS provides a powerful online bidding system to help cargo owners set up actual bidding plans, invite online multiple potential carriers to participate in bidding, set bidding time, and allow carriers to make multiple rounds of quotation, bargaining, and price adjustment. The final locked offer can directly generate a valid price file to achieve a complete closed loop of subsequent operational monitoring and reconciliation and freight settlement.
- Make the bidders more controllable and more traceable
- Flexible selection of the carrier to participate in the bidding
- Meet the requirements of different quotation structures according to different routes, stepped quotations, additional fees, etc.
- Support the export of the quotation of the carrier and the batch adjustment of the quotation of the carrier
At the same time, in the bidding process, oTMS can assist the cargo owner to simulate the quotation of different carriers to export the “cost perspective” data dashboard, which can effectively support the bidding decision of the cargo owner, and can also more easily quantify the real cost changes during the operation phase.
oTMS online bidding in a unified online quotation format, avoiding the various modes of the carrier's quotation bids, bringing high-efficiency comparison, optimization, and gradually accumulating KPI data to the high-quality carrier with standardized quotation mode. The real waybill provides a specific and measurable logistics cost reference for the carrier's quotation, laying a solid foundation for a win-win cooperation.
After the online bidding is completed, is everything over? This is not the case on the oTMS cloud platform. The completion of bidding marks the real development of the transportation business, the powerful transportation management capability of the system itself, and the actual transportation execution in real time and accurate management. The quality carrier not only displays the price and service level in the bidding, but also accumulates the daily operational performance data to show the advantages in a more comprehensive and in-depth manner. oTMS's one-stop transportation service capability will undoubtedly become a priority partner for enterprise transportation management.
After a well-known large company successfully optimized the transportation network configuration problem by using oTMS service, it successfully reduced the logistics cost in 2016 by 6%. The rapid development of oTMS in the past two years has connected a large number of well-known domestic cargo owners, and has accumulated a large number of high-quality transportation companies. Only enterprises that continuously optimize the challenges can develop in the long run in this era, so that logistics and transportation services can be upgraded and logistics can be upgraded. Participants in the entire chain gain more and better business opportunities to jointly promote the healthy development of the logistics industry.
