At Transfix, we’re proud to partner with some of the nation’s most innovative and forward-thinking companies. While working closely with a leader in the retail space, the value proposition of DLRs came into focus. Previously, when a contracted carrier rejected one of their loads, a coordinator would put that load up for auction. They would then email freight brokers, requesting a rate for that particular lane. In the end, they would spend hours trying to find the best quote to cover the lane. Enabling automated spot bidding through a TMS integration with Transfix was explored, but ultimately they couldn’t dedicate the necessary resources to an integration, leaving them stuck with an inefficient process.
As an alternative, we proposed daily lane rates. This allowed coordinators to know the rates for their lanes every morning without needing to put the load up for auction or emailing us. When a contract carrier fell through, they would first refer to our daily rate page before going to the spot market. We were able to save each coordinator over three hours a day.
