Europe’s largest transport platform was recently expanded to include a new application: digital order handling. With TC Transport Order®, more than 127,000 TimoCom users handle their transport orders centrally on the platform and optimise their daily business processes with digital operations.
The transport quote request feature makes digital transport purchases simple. Companies requiring transport create a transport quote request including all important information on their freight, and then receive offers from up to 50 of their personally selected business contacts. Then, they simply compare the price offers and choose the best service provider.
With a single click, all other service providers automatically receive a notice stating their offer has been declined and the transport quote request can be automatically switched to a transport order, which contains all information from the quote request and can be sent by the company to their service provider via the TimoCom platform. When the service provider accepts the transport order, a mutually binding legal contract is established.
If the company requiring transport has selected a service provider in advance, they simply use a few clicks to put together their transport order and send it directly to their business partner. Once their business partner has accepted, agreements and conditions are agreed to and legally binding, all with minimum effort.
The biggest advantage: companies requiring transport carry out all transport orders digitally, using a single transport platform. They are thus always connected directly to their service provider and can keep an eye on the status of their order.
From 1st – 3rd of May, TimoCom invites all visitors to the Multimodal 2018 in Birmingham to try TC Transport Order® live in Hall 4/4025 at the TimoCom stand!
