Schneider Logistics Inc. has launched the next generation of its transportation bidding tool, BidSmart. The new Web-enabled bidding system optimizes shippers' transportation networks by identifying solutions that reduce costs and provide additional capacity, while helping carriers find increased loads for their networks. Using a Web-based bid format, BidSmart enables pre-qualified carriers to view a shipper's transportation requirements and bid on individual lanes or packages of lanes. In turn, carriers can enter their rates and service capabilities, create their own packages, review specific freight service requirements and analyze bid results.
The added functionality of scenario analysis now enables shippers to perform on-the-fly trade-off analyses for easy comparison. BidSmart is offered through Schneider Logistics' Transportation Advisory Service, the company's global transportation consulting service.
