FAQ

What happens if our current customer starts using FreightOpt?

Your current customer switching to FreightOpt means that your company can provide even better services to the customer by making full use of FreightOpt’s functions. The system also provides you with useful data for developing and monitoring your business.

What information is provided to service providers on their placement in requests for quotes?

The customer that opens the request for quotations defines a deadline for the RFQ, until which service providers can send in their quotes. Once you have submitted your quote, the system will show you your placement in relation to other service providers who have provided a quote for the same RFQ. You are then able to change your quote until the deadline is exceeded.

Do I have to install something to use FreightOpt?

No installation needed. FreightOpt is a browser-based platform, which makes it easy to implement.

How long does it take until my registration is complete?

Creating and activating your user account only takes us a moment, so it can be done practically instantaneously.

What information do I need to enter into the system when I submit a quote?

The price and the estimated time of delivery. The price can be entered as a lump sum, or the costs can be provided as itemised. In addition, you can attach documents or your internal reference for the shipment.

What information can the customers access on our company in the system?

When you submit a quote for a RFQ, the customer who published the RFQ can access your company name, the contact details you provided (email and phone number) and the information on the quote itself as well as any uploaded documents.

Can I contact the customer through the system?

The system includes an integrated chat function that can be used to ask questions from and discuss with the customer. Customers also reply to questions directly in the system. Service providers are kept anonymous to each other in the chat function as well. The customer’s contact details can be viewed after you submit a quote.

What kinds of service providers are using your system?

Our service provider network comprises some of the largest forwarding and shipping companies. If the service provider your company uses is not included, it can be easily added.

How do I order shipments from the system?

Booking a shipment takes just one click. Select the best quote for you from the list of automatically compared quotes and click on the Order button. The service provider receives a notification on your order and will contact you via email or phone.

How are notifications on new RFQs sent?

Notifications on new RFQs are sent directly via email. The email message includes a link that you can click to view the new RFQs directly in the system. Notification settings can be customised in the Settings section.

How can I access the service provider’s contact details if necessary?

You can view the service provider’s contact details in the system by clicking on the RFQ. You can also chat with service providers with the integrated chat function.

How do I post requests for quotations?

For posting an RFQ, you need the same information on the shipment that you would include in an email you send to ask for a quote. Information on the sender and the receiver must be provided for each RFQ, but they can be saved to be used again. In addition to the address details, you need to provide the relevant shipping information and any possible additional information. You can also upload documents to provide more information to service providers.

How can I view my previous RFQs?

All RFQs are stored in the system’s Request History section. In this section, you can view all your past shipments and inspect different types of data collected on your shipments. You can also print out a report from the system.
