Fill up! – 3 excellent tips that are a driving force for capacity optimisation
1. Search for freight
Sometimes it seems like an empty or partially filled run is the only option:
But it’s not! Whether you are looking for additional freight, partial or complete loads, the TIMOCOM freight exchange is a great place to find the freight you need. Filter based on routes, load metres or weight, and then enter into a legally binding transport agreement to optimise your capacities.
2. Offer vehicle space
If you aren’t advertising your cargo space, you should be!
People with freight to transport require vehicle space. All you need to do is provide information on your available capacity and potential routes in the Vehicle Space application and let the customers come to you. If that seems like a lot of effort, simply use the template feature to save valuable time during data entry.
3. Advertise your services
It can be hard to win customers, even if you offer a full spectrum of services.
But over 53,000 verified companies on the TIMOCOM Marketplace rate each other, and they can list their services and upload important documents to their company profile, so it’s easy to find business partners. You just have to put your company out there!
