More than 360 tender per month
Within the first twelve months 3,100 tenders were carried out via the programme that was awarded by BMEnet, subsidiary of BME (German Association Materials Management Purchasing and Logistics e.V.). On its second anniversary, TC eBid® can already look back on more than 8,800 tenders. That corresponds to currently 366 tenders per month.
No wonder that by now, over 2,000 companies - be it big players or small companies - tender their transports via this application. Nowadays more than ever, predictability and efficiency are the basic prerequisites for a business to do well. In a transport market that is subject to fluctuations, planning contracts in the long-term is particularly important.
Along the lines of „Think today about tomorrow“ the procurement platform offers the decisive plus in terms of business opportunities and competitiveness - not only to tendering trade and industry customers, but also to transport service providers. The advantage of TC eBid® is its exceptionally easy use. Customers can reach 30,000 transport service providers per tender. Important: bidders cannot see the offers that others make - preventing this way a price war. The complete process is electronic and documented clearly and comprehensibly. Complicated tables, outdated address directories or protracted telephone calls are a thing of the past for all those involved.
The tender itself is completed in only three steps and can be created flexibly according to the tendering company's needs. Tenders can graded by "weight/volume" and several rates per route can be requested at the same time without any problems. In addition, rates can not only be entered "per transport or per kilometre", but also "per unit" such as "loading metre or pallet".
Marcel Frings, TimoCom's Chief Representative, promises not to rest on his laurels: in order to offer the economic advantage that the users desires, every day we work on improving the quality of our tendering platform. We are doing our utmost to provide our customers with new practical features, but no gimmicks. And for the near future, they can clearly look forward to some positive surprises."
