Internet Truckstop, one of the largest web-based freight matching services in the transportation industry, launched a new request for proposal suite of services that it says has not previously been available to brokers or third party logistic companies.
Internet Truckstop’s new Request for Proposal (RFP) Suite is a cloud based system which requires no software installation and allows users to create, distribute and compete in the RFP Process.
“Our goal in developing the RFP suite was to provide our customers with a ground breaking RFP solution that would reduce the amount of time spent compiling data while also providing additional carrier capacity if needed when bidding on a RFP’s,” says Leigh Foxall, director of freight matching.
Users can invite their pre-qualified core carrier group to participate in an RFP session as well as reach out to new potential carriers that are members of the Internet Truckstop community. The new service allows for customization to meet a user specific needs with user preferences being customized all the way down to lane choices.
Users can quickly respond to RFP’s with a detailed understanding of their own available margins per lane as truck and rate history is uploaded directly into the platform, she says.
Internet Truckstop says the new RFP suite will help users manage their businesses and provide a single on-demand system to easily consolidate, organize, schedule, host, and award or accept lanes to selected transportation partners.
