Tender Management

Unbeatable Efficiency:
Tender management for freight auditing/checking clients

Shipment data, invoice and credit note data with weights, destinations, frequency, percentage of rushed orders, etc. – all this data is already read in to our software systems in the course of freight auditing/checking.

You can profit directly from this in your tendering process. How? With systematic, simulation-supported tenders, you can compare incoming bids based on your current freight data. Compiling and preparing this data comprises a significant portion of the time and effort required in the tendering process. Thanks to our freight auditing/checking, this data is already available in electronic form – complete, detailed and ready for flexible analysis. This saves you a lot of time and money. The experts at Staedtler-Logistics import your current freight data directly into our market-leading solution for transport cost simulation (SCALA) and use them as a basis for a request for bids for forwarding agents in the tendering process.

With our tender management services, we work with you to prepare for these decisions. We help you to bring your company into negotiations with seasoned logistics service providers from a position of power.
Software & Systems

What makes tenders so complicated?

  • Freight tariffs are difficult to compare. Each forwarding agent calculates tariffs according to different criteria and uses a scaling method that accentuates their strengths and distracts from their weaknesses. Comparing these tables can be extremely complicated.
  • Tenders often have gaps. Requirements are described vaguely or are not prioritized correctly. Companies don’t have the time, resources and experience to conduct negotiations that will lead to an optimal result.
  • Warehousing services must be viewed in the context of the complete supply chain. The location of an outsourced picking warehouse, for example, has a direct influence on goods flows and transport costs.

Why should you choose us to lead your tendering process to success? Because our experts have both decades of experience and modern, high-performance software tools. We make bids easy to compare, identify strengths and weaknesses and use software-supported simulations to calculate the effects of your decisions.
