Why can’t I book all transports in the same system?
Far and away my biggest worry has to do with all the different ways there are for us to book transports. On the one hand, we have our usual flows, but then there are far too many customers that have to have their bookings made through a specific carrier, so we have to book via the respective carriers’ websites. It takes far too much time, and it’s getting to the point where it’s completely impractical.
Let us help you
The best approach is to be able to book all your transports in the same system, ideally from your own business system where all your customer and order data are already stored. In that case, you won’t have to work in any other system. Most TA systems have a large number of carriers linked to them, but they often need to be activated and this sometimes costs extra. This should, however, be weighed against the benefits or reducing complexity through dealing with all transport bookings in the same way.
Another way to reduce complexity is to consider how many (and which) carriers you actually need.
We work with a number of different TA systems and can help you find the one that is best for you, your carriers and your way of working. We can also help you set up carriers who are not included in the system’s existing pool.
If you would like help choosing the right carriers on the basis of your specific needs, we will be happy to assist you. We have agreements with most major carriers and can help you prepare solutions that are efficient from multiple perspectives: quality, transport costs and booking administration, for example.
