6 Ways shippers can boost RFP process confidence and clarity
The RFP (request for proposal) gives shippers a chance to control network costs and open new business possibilities. Analytics provide process confidence and clarity, ensuring that you are diversifying your network to provide reliable capacity at predictable rates.
These are the top six guidelines for an effective RFP.
AN HISTORICAL PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS SHOULD BE DONE
ESTABLISH MARKET BENCHMARKS
USE THE POWER OF PROJECTION
WITH SEASONAL VOLUMES, BE PRECISE
CARRIERS SHOULD BE ALIGNED WITH YOUR CAPACITY NEEDS
AN “IDEAL CARRIER PROFILE” SHOULD BE CREATED
Create a perfect carrier profile that lists the qualities that a carrier must have to meet your network’s needs in order to pre-qualify the proper carriers in high-priority lanes. Include information such as contact information, certifications, fleet size, safety rating, and insurance coverage when making your choice. To validate that carriers have capacity and interest in your lanes, try deploying analytics tools that reveal their most recent market activity.
DESIRE A BETTER RFP
The RFP process of today offers a chance to hone your network and empower your team to handle any evolving market conditions. To take full advantage of that possibility, you must have a thorough understanding of how your network performs in comparison to the larger market.
To approach your RFP with assurance, you must collaborate with a transportation data provider who has a substantial data set and distinct market benchmarks.
