Our clients

The most successful companies are able to adapt to rapidly changing market conditions of logistics procurement. They size 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 and Procurement in Supply Chain Management – Strategic and Effective

Alpega’s sourcing and freight 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 all with one freight sourcing software.

STOP GUESSING, START OPTIMIZING WITH OUR FREIGHT PROCUREMENT SOLUTIONS

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.

Your company can collect, analyze, and act on historical data; gain access to reliable benchmarking; and digitalize the RFQ process. 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.
