What is Carrier Allocation?

Carrier allocation is a freight management service that matches organizations with the best carrier for their freight requirements. This process considers various criteria such as product size, weight, product type, shipping location, and budget.


Why is Carrier Allocation important?

Carrier allocation is an essential freight management process because it guarantees businesses the best transport option to meet their demands. It enables the logistics department to save time, cut costs, and enhance efficiency while guaranteeing their items arrive safe and timely.


How do you choose the best carrier for my business?

We choose the best carrier for your business based on several factors, including product type, shipping location, budget, etc. Our experienced team works closely with you to understand your unique needs and match you with the carrier that offers the best solution for your business. We evaluate carriers based on their experience, capacity, reliability, communication, and more to ensure we allocate the perfect carrier for your business.

Predefined agreements on capacity, price, and service levels, as determined by Carrier Management, are automatically applied to the shipments in the system. An assignment takes place by either the auto accept principle or waterfall tendering.

Brokerage shipments without predefined agreements (ad hoc, seasonal, overflow, express) are offered to a select group of carriers via broadcast tendering or offering. Air and Ocean shipments are benchmarked to follow the fluctuation of the market and guarantee the best service.
