Tariffs & contracts
Within transportation, it is customary to make tariff agreements for transport requests. You can enter these agreements with your customers and subcontractors to whom you outsource transport requests in the TMS. The price for a new transport can therefore be quickly (and automatically) calculated and converted into a quote or transport request in just one mouse click.
Tariff agreements with customers
Customers who regularly commission transport requests often enjoy their own tariffs. This means the generic price list cannot be used for a quotation and that the tariff agreements reached with that customer must be applied. Our TMS can specify the most complex tariff agreements per customer.

Transport costs calculator
Based on predetermined tariff agreements the transport costs can be easily calculated as soon as the requisite data has been entered.
The price for a new transport can therefore be quickly (and automatically) calculated, and then emailed with just one mouse click as a quote to the contact person, or directly converted into a transport request. This precludes errors and speeds up administrative transactions!
Should no tariff agreement be in place the calculator uses the generic transport price list as standard; so everything is included on the invoices!
A few examples
Loading & delivery address
Refridgerated / Unrefridgerated
If you (regularly) use subcontractors to carry out transport requests you may have negotiated contracts with them that include, among other things, tariff agreements.
These agreements can be entered into the TMS, per subcontractor. As soon as you allocate a transport request to a certain subcontractor, you immediately see the corresponding tariff agreements as well as the margin attained on the transport request in question.
The subcontractor’s invoice can be easily checked by linking the transport request to the tariff agreement. Self-billing is also supported. If needed, the purchase invoice can be linked to the file via document scanning.
