DHL Freight
Within DHL Freight Romania we have decided to implement a transparent contract allocation procedure for the transport providers. That is why we searched for an easy way to automate this process. We chose CargoTender because it is a romanian freight tender platform, easy to use, efficient and provides a fair cost for its customers. It also ensures a transparent auction process.

  • A lot of time spent fot data centralization and communication to suppliers;
Results
  • Auctions have become much more transparent;
  • Quick centralization of the results;
  • Saving increased (3 - 5%);

At Mainfreight Romania we want that our entire warehousing and domestic / international transport process be at a superior level of performance and efficiency, and with the speed and promptness offered, the customer will consider us the number one choice.

Why CargoPlanning?

The Mainfreight slogan is "Special People, Special Company", and that is why we need a personalized tool to meet the needs of our teams so that its use simplifies internal processes. The CargoPlanning platform has made a linear flow of means of transport, reduced waiting time, optimized the loading / unloading process, and created a linkage interface between departments within the company.
Alexandru Panait - Branch Manager Forwarding and Transport
Challenges
  • With the increase of activity the classic system used reached its limits of use so a specialized tool was needed;
  • High waiting times for loading / unloading operations due to the uneven arrival of the means of transport;
  • Difficult process of prioritizing operations;
  • Lack of information about the position of the means of transport within the premises of Mainfreight warehouses;
Results
  • Improved control over operations by switching from a limited system to a dedicated online booking slot system that, in addition to slots planning and modification, also ensures the visibility of the entire process through online access from any device connected to the Internet;
  • Implement a status system that monitors the means of transport at different checkpoints inside the warehouse and records the time and date of passage (arrived at the gate, arrived at the ramp, left the ramp, finishing the operation);
  • Reducing waiting times by scheduling slots and optimizing warehouse activity by organizing transport modes on time, resulting in maximizing operational capacity;
  • Eliminate phone calls by automating the transmission of information by SMS or e-mail and by viewing statuses for each order by any CargoSlot user at any time of the day;

OtelInox, part of Samsung C&T, uses CargoTender for freight procurement.

OtelInox
We started to work with the CargoPlanning platform since 3 years ago. We chose an online platform for freight tender thanks to the benefits offered - speed, transparency and automatic centralization of the results. We use to invite more than 40 transport providers and select the best offers for this kind of services. CargoTender was exactly what we needed at the right time. The main advantage was the time reduction for the entire process . The prices offered by the carriers were as expected and due to the introduction of the target price for each area.
Mihail Bachios - Logistic Team Deputy Manager
Challenges
  • Huge amount of data to handle with - we took a lot of phone calls and we used to exchange a lot of emails or to do paper work in order to find the best carriers for our shipments;
  • Lack of transparency - we do care about our partners and we want to give everyone the same chances, so we wanted a collaborative system to provide real time data on the progress of the tender;
Results
  • Streamlined the tendering process - the bidding time shortened from 2 weeks to 3 days;
  • For 10% of the routes, we obtained lower prices than the proposed target price;
  • Better control over the entire process - we focus on choosing the best offers instead of centralize every information (the platform has a unique mechanism of centralizing the offers based on our needs);
