SmartWay Logistics Links up with TICONTRACT

UTRECHT, Netherlands – 18 May 2010 - SmartWay Logistics, an asset-free provider of transportation management services announces today that it has chosen the freight tendering platform, TICONTRACT for transportation bidding. The multi-language tool optimizes SmartWay Logistics clients’ transport networks identifying solutions that lower costs and provide additional capacity while helping carriers find additional freight for their networks.
Using TICONTRACT allows SmartWay Logistics access to over 12,000 carriers who have been pre-qualified based on service performance, equipment type and rates. The carriers bid on different transport scenarios, the results are then analyzed by SmartWay Logistics and business is awarded to the carrier who best meets the shipper’s or logistics provider’s requirements. Traditional forms of tendering freight such as Excel spreadsheets and email requests are time-consuming and often inefficient; automating the distribution, collation and analysis of requests for quotations allows SmartWay Logistics and logistics providers to process large amounts of data in order to find specific and cost effective solutions for their clients’ transportation needs.
SmartWay Logistics, Director, René van den Akker said, ‘We constantly strive to create value for our customers. By using TICONTRACT for transportation tendering, we receive market-driven rates and access to extensive carrier capacity that delivers benefits for all parties involved, but more significantly, for our customers.
Florian Dussler, Business Development Manager for TICONTRACT added, ‘We have taken the historically unstructured process of transport tendering and standardized it. SmartWay Logistics joins our growing list of customers who employ this technology to achieve their goals of improving efficiency, streamlining processes and reducing costs. ‘
