Securing truck capacity at an acceptable rate is one of the biggest challenges facing shippers today. Tendering loads to a wide net of carriers and brokers is a time consuming and frustrating process involving multiple emails, phone calls and faxes to get the right carrier at the right time at the right rate.
In response, Opus9 has added new functionality designed to improve the shipper experience in securing truck capacity.
If you are looking to book a full truckload, Opus9 now provides three different rate options:
- Spot Rate - this rate is available to be instantly booked.
- Tendered Rate - A discounted rate that the Opus9 pricing algorithm predicts might be available via a tender process, run through Opus9's carrier network. Opus9 will tender your shipment to its carrier network and confirm the booking at that price or lower within four business hours. If the bid comes in higher, Opus9 will ask for your acceptance of the rate before booking.
- Name Your Rate - If the Spot or Tendered Rates are not meeting your needs, this option allows you to name your rate. Opus9 will tender this rate to its carrier network and confirm the booking at that price or lower within twenty-four hours. If the bids come in higher, Opus9 will ask for your acceptance of the rate before booking.
Opus9 has worked hard over the last 6 months to improve the quoting algorithms to expedite and automate the quoting and booking process. We are confident that you will find the new rate quote feature for full truckloads will save you time and money.
