Conducting a Tender proposal is a time consuming and inefficient process. Users often work with information that is non-comparable and presented in different formats.

INTTRA offers shippers and their carriers an online tool, web support and on-site training to make the Tender process faster and more efficient. Shippers and carriers benefit from greater convenience, improved accuracy and more control over the Tender process.

INTTRA’s web-based Tender tool allows carriers and shippers to create, design, send and receive tender proposals using standard data formats and a workflow process that breaks through the limitations of traditional Excel-based tender processes.

  • Customization of results - quotes may be viewed in the currency of choice, and surcharges may be included and/or excluded.
  • Decision Support: The ability to review of the cost impact of carrier selections, changes to trade lanes, services and carrier strategies.
  • Secure: Data is protected for internal and external use. Security controls for user access and controls for what data is available internally and externally.
