Freight procurement is a critical competitive factor in supply chain management. TICONTRACT Logistics Consulting Services supervises companies in the selection of a service provider. The goal is to reach cost-optimized, secure assignment decisions.
The consultation approach encompasses all types of freight procurement projects, whether they are smaller, local sourcing projects or multi-million euro bid invitations with global reach.
Definition of project goals and customer requirements in the field of freight procurement
Recommendation for a bid invitation strategy / procurement policy based on project goals
Data analysis and consolidation
Supplier identification, qualification and definition of a short list (procurement, RFI, preselection, scoring)
Analysis of financial results, including various procurement strategies (calculating the assignment of various simulations and scenarios).
Support in the creation of bid invitation documents (definition of required documents, review of existing documents, design of matrices)
The consultation approach in the field of freight procurement is a combination of on-site (usually one day) and online support. In the first phase, projects can be initiated using an on-site presence. Generally, all steps from data analysis to supplier management are carried centrally by experts for each area of responsibility. Although we offer consultation, our work ends with the presentation of the results analysis. Our policy is to remain strictly neutral with respect to carriers. Because of this, the final decision and the contract negotiations remain the sole responsibility of the shipper.
TICONTRACT Logistics Consulting is a product for companies that have a highly complex transport structure and freight procurement process, those that have too little capacity to manage global invitation bids in multiple regions, those that generally have a limited number of employees or companies that do not define logistics as part of their core business.
