Transportation Sourcing and Procurement Software

Strategic Transport Procurement Software Solutions

The right sourcing and procurement software is a critical component of successful strategic transportation management. Transportation procurement has become a key tool in leveraging a competitive advantage from your supply chain and is the foundation of the partnerships that define your transport supplier relationships.

Alpega’s strategic sourcing solutions maximize your buying power and reduce time spent finding the best partner. Identifying the right carrier for each project means your business can focus on implementing a strategic approach to transport procurement and sourcing. It also lets you move away from Excel and enjoy the benefits of a solution designed for freight professionals.

Alpega’s cloud-based sourcing and procurement software will help you:

  • Collect and analyze your transport data
  • Research, select and invite new trusted carriers
  • Ensure carrier compliance and onboarding
  • Transfer contracted rates to ERP or TMS
  • Enforce contracted rates to prevent leakage
  • Conduct effective RFI/ RFPs

Our clients

The most successful companies are able to adapt to rapidly changing market conditions. They seize opportunities when they present themselves and are always one step ahead of the competition. That’s because they’re data driven. By collecting, analyzing and acting on historical data, benchmarking market prices and digitalizing the RFQ process, businesses are able to drive real value and stop wasting time in Excel.

Sourcing transport at scale – strategic and effective procurement

Alpega’s sourcing and procurement software goes beyond the immediate ROI of improving tactical spot bidding.

For larger projects and strategic freight procurement, our transport sourcing solutions can run exercises such as spot bidding for single shipments, all the way to complex tender events for long-term contracts. It also supports the complete tendering process with RFQs, repetitive bidding and full scenario analysis.

And of course, you benefit from Alpega’s carrier network, along with your own suppliers, and can invite those selected to tender via an RFI or RFP.

Stop guessing, start optimizing

Benchmarking freight rates based on real-time market data is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to secure the best deals. A properly implemented process will guarantee the data insights necessary to stay one step ahead of the market and the competition.

It also ensures you know exactly what represents value for money and empowers you to be more strategic when planning ahead. Combined with strategic sourcing software, benchmarking delivers actionable data that has the potential to unite and improve the transport industry as a whole.

 

Still doing freight procurement the old-fashioned way?

Manually entering data is time consuming and inefficient. Excel isn’t designed to be a database: large datasets from multiple formats and sources just don’t make it any easier.

Alpega’s transportation procurement software was created by freight experts who were sick and tired of trawling through spreadsheets. They realized there was a better way and brought it to market. It didn’t take too long for some of the biggest businesses on the globe to catch on and start using our solution.

FAQ

Is freight procurement the same as logistics procurement?

Yes. Freight procurement, also called logistics procurement, is the process of purchasing transportation. This includes the management and planning of transportation buying activities.

The time and costs you’ll save on these processes are a sure way to drive growth.

Benchmarking freight rates will secure you the best deals, because you’ll know exactly what represents value for money.
