More transport orders: 5 simple steps to a fully automated Rate Card process

What large networks have been using for a long time is now also possible for small freight forwarders on the Saloodo! digital freight platform: depositing rate cards. This offers transport companies many new business opportunities – without having to acquire orders yourselves. But how does it work?

Generate more transport sales with the help of Rate Cards!

So-called rate cards allow you to automatically bid on shipments that meet your specifications with fixed rates. This helps reduce your manual work and generate more bookings. Use Rate Cards to even expand your presence on Saloodo! by offering more deals.

These 5 steps show you how to set up Rate Cards:

Are you interested in offering fixed rates on the Saloodo! platform or do you have questions about Rate Cards? Contact us or send us an e-mail to:
cooperations@saloodo.com. Our customer suport will then take care of your request.
Ideally, you hold the following information:

  • Price matrix with at least weight or loading meter cluster in Excel format
  • Pick-up and delivery relations (country + two-digit zip code)
  • Validity period of the offer
  • Min. and max. package dimensions
  • Min. and max. weight
  • Permitted packages
  • Transit times and standard pickup times or standard delivery times
  • Loading meter and weight factors

After the phone call, you simply set up your corresponding price matrix according to your specifications and transport conditions. We will be happy to provide you with our template for this purpose. If you need help with the creationof the matrix, please do not hesitate to contact us. The matrix filled in with your tariffs automatically gives the platform the correct amount for corresponding inquiries and creates an offer. For price adjustments, you only work in the matrix. The platform takes over the active bidding.

Your offer is not easy to capture in a matrix? No problem! We will be happy to discuss additional information such as transit times or other criteria in a telephone call.

It is important to know that you can be notified by the platform at any time when one of your automatic transport offers is accepted. Therefore, Saloodo! needs to know your correct contact details at any time. It has never been easier to receive automatic transport orders.

Now wait for more and more orders to arrive in your inbox. Saloodo! finds suitable transport requests fully automatically based on the set criteria and automatically submits your offer for the transport request – of course exclusively with the prices you set.
