New Trans.eu high speed freight exchange

3 main benefits

  • Automatic creation of quiries to carriers

    No more rewriting quiries received e.g. by e-mail from shippers. With just one click you start an order or send a query to search for a carrier.

  • Automatic selection of a carrier for freight and work on groups of carriers

    TfF allows you to create automation rules and set the order of access to freight for regular carriers. You can also create groups of preferred carriers. TfF also facilitates confirmation of freight acceptance by the carrier.

  • Increased profitability on freights

    Save your money using automated auctions and thanks to access to carriers with vehicles close to the loading area. The algorithm quickly and automatically offers carriers optimally matched to the load.

+ 3 EXTRA additions

  • Real help when there are no cars, e.g. in peak seasons

    Automatic search by the algorithm of a carrier and a free car – up to the effect. It’s the only such tool on the market thanks to its connection to the community of 25 000 of carriers of the Trans.eu exchange.

  • Load monitoring and order management

    Shippers simply require full monitoring of order execution. TfF is practically TMS class 4.0. You can: monitor the current location and status of load, receive notification of delays and automate the order’s issuing.

  • Easy and quick settlements of transport orders

    Fast, partially automatic invoicing and order settlement (including additional fees and contractual penalties), monitoring data and clear reports.

Caution! Only for people with special TCF Elite status

  • Suggestions of regular cooperation with new loaders

    This is a special service for freight forwarders verified as Trans.eu Certified Forwarder Elite. They will receive access to matched loads from shippers.

Our Experts about Trans for Forwarders (TfF)

  • Sylwester Niemyjski
    DHL Global Forwarding

    At DHL, I am responsible for contacting companies that offer transport services provided by vehicles with flatbed trailers. In the ear of a lack of drivers, Trans for Forwarders significantly increases the chances to expand one's contact base with new, profiled carriers. The ability to match an order with carriers according to one's own criteria is a way to quickly and effectively find the right subcontractor.

    Branch International Distribution Manager, Raben Logistics Polska

    Trans for Forwarders may fill the gap in the transport services market. What I like the most is the SmartMatch algorithm which allows us to find carriers driving on the desirable conditions. I think that thanks to this solution, it is only a matter of time before TfF becomes an essential tool to look for transport.

  • Jarosław Płusa
    CEO of Uniq Logistic

    Freight forwarder has to listen carefully to the needs of their customer and the carrier they are collaborating with. The traditional communication methods are time consuming and often result in the classic "Chinese whispers." Trans for Forwarders allows us to contain the communication in one place. That way, the freight forwarder gains time and clarity of communication.

    The role of the modern freight forwarding is a comprehensive customer service and carrier route optimisation. That is impossible without automation of some processes, as every aware manager knows. Trans for Forwarders is a high-level tool that allows freight forwarders to combine the needs of the load and the carrier.

Integration and implementations – how do we operate?

Automation requires the integration of TfF with the TMS used by the freight forwarder. It is a solution that supports activities of the company if the current system is used for e.g. organisation of other modes of transport.

TfF integration

You can conduct it yourself on the basis of available APIs or with the help of Trans.eu specialists, after you conduct an analysis of the business process and the implementation scope and sign the agreement.
