Carrier Selection

You want your goods moved from A to B on time, in budget and conform some other constraints. To have your goods shipped according to these constraints you need enough quality carrier capacity.

The transport market is a market with thousands of carriers, suited for specific industries and operating regions, with different performing scores and prices. Therefore it isn't the most transparent market and it can be truly challenging to find the carriers matching your needs.  

Thanks to our hands-on transport mentality and experience as a 4PL provider, we are capable of selecting the carriers to your requirements in a short period of time.


Our TMS Selects the Most Suitable Carrier

As a neutral party, we always look for the most suitable carrier based on modality, service, lane, price and performance levels. Our TMS contains a database of over 2.900 carriers, of which 270 carriers are active (minimum of one transport per week). Our TMS selects the most suitable carrier for your load based on specific order requirements.


Our carrier database is constantly updated by our Carrier Management team. We are actively approaching new carriers offering services for road, parcel, inter-modal, short-sea, deep-sea and air shipments to expand our carrier network. New technological developments are closely monitored and trialled before implementing, for example, zero-emission trucks and LHV vehicles.

Contract Management

The agreed rates, capacity commitments, service levels, and liabilities are formalized in a contract or service level agreement. The agreements are set up in the master data of our TMS and periodically reviewed by Carrier Management.
