How to use Quotation requests for forwarders
The process is straightforward and less error-prone than the manual effort.
It whole process begins with a forwarder looking for a carrier with space.
- Then the forwarder will log in to TrustedTrucks, open the Quotation Request window, create a new quotation request, and put the freight details, pick-up, and drop-off locations, and times. Followed by the requirements that need to be met for the particular freight to be transported correctly, e.g. refrigeration.
- After adding this information to the quotation request form the forwarder can then search through a database of carriers on the TrustedTrucks network and use filters to find carriers who meet specific requirements, i,e being based in Berlin, having refrigeration capabilities, and of course being qualified (meaning being pre-screened for licenses and insurance).
- Once the forwarder has found the right carriers, the carriers can be selected, then the forwarder can send the quotation request to all of them with just one click.
- If the forwarder couldn’t find a suitable carrier on TrustedTrucks but has one in mind, he\she can simply add the carrier’s email address to the invitation screen and send them the quotation request too.
- Last but not least, after sending the quotation requests, the forwarder can monitor this request from one screen and compare the quotes as they come in. It’s less time-consuming to prepare and send quotations and it’s easier to pick the best quote every time.
