Transportation Procurement Services from e2open

Conducting regular transportation procurement events can reduce your reliance on spot markets and maximize the benefits of routing guide compliance. Let our team manage all aspects of sourcing for you and help secure the best rates for your required service levels.

We Manage, but You’re in the Driver’s Seat

Working for and with you, we will outline the project steps and timeline. Our team simplifies the collaborative processes of preparing and executing an RFP event, while also providing complex data management, analysis and communication. You are with us every step of the way. We do the work. You give the approval.

We provide consultative services, but we are not consultants. Our focus is to help make you as successful as possible with the understanding that transportation procurement is a balancing act between cost, service and relationship. We supply the data and conduct analyses for you, enabling you to make informed decisions.

Awarding a lane at a fair market rate—one that will get you the truck when you need it—is more important than awarding a load to a carrier that may not be there at the right time. With our experience, we are operators at heart, and producing a real result is better than only providing a low-cost solution.

Our Experts Ease the Load—for You and Your Carrier Partners

With your input, our team does the initial setup and identifies additional carriers based on geography and capabilities to add to your incumbent carrier list. e2open will manage all the lane data aggregation, send out the invitations and facilitate the bidding process.

We also make it easy for carriers to participate by providing standardized templates each carrier can easily fill out and upload. Once we kick off a round, our team actively monitors carrier responses and reaches out to carriers directly to drive participation. Based on those responses, our team sets up and runs multiple award scenarios using a select list of carrier/lane criteria as it applies to a particular event.

Our analysis supports optimal award assignments to ensure that your freight is aligned with the highest-value service provider. After you select the carrier, we issue awards to that carrier and collect all required documentation for you.

With e2open’s managed transportation procurement service, you can lighten your load and increase efficiencies:

  • Improve your transportation sourcing process
  • Compare carriers and lanes without disrupting your current workflow
  • Achieve quicker ROI through faster RFP preparation
  • Leverage an experienced team with over 24 years in transportation procurement
  • Take advantage of innovative technology to enable better-informed carrier, lane and route choices
  • Award carriers based on multiple constraints

Transforming your company’s direct procurement processes from tactical to strategic requires an evaluation of where your department is today and where you want to be in the future. e2open provides essentials to help guide you on your journey.
