Frequently asked questions

Yes, Tenderify can parse any customer RFQ template, such as TI-contract. Tenderify will recognize the headers and field values and generate a unified bidding sheet (UBS) from the customer request template. Once in the UBS, the automated calculation can fill all requested fields and fill out the customer template.

When a customer is requesting an all-in price, Tenderify knows that only a single output value is required. When running the pricing calculation, Tenderify retrieves all cost components and will display them in the calculation columns. For the all-in price, it will generate a linked formula that ties up the different cost components and conversions to the all-in cell:

single price figure
screen: all in price with multiple calculated components

Once the RFQ template is parsed (recognized and shown as unified bidding sheet), it can be calculated. There are multiple options to do so:

  • Based on reference rate sheet (even if they have different formats)
  • Based on a formula and value formulas you add
  • Based on historical data
  • Based on an outbound freight tender (that is for subcontracting)

You, as a bidder, will have control at all times and can override calculated values, add multipliers.

Our aim is to automatically map a template with zero intervention of the user. The mapping is also learning and getting better over time. All common RFQ templates (TI-contract, Odessey, McKinzie, etc) are fully recognized by the mapper. In case additional data mapping is required, a mapping interface helps you through the steps.

Tenderify is also offering mapping as a service: where someone of our data team is doing the mapping for you. That means you just need to handle the unified bidding sheet and generate the offer yourself.

Tenderify allows to:

  • Use your own fuel model
  • fix fuel percent (e.g. 12% fuel on freight)
  • ignore fuel (e.g. when the offer is fuel exclusive)

Tenderify builds on the Transmate freight engine that allows you to define a fuel model that can be attached to the rate cards. If your customer is requesting a specific fuel percentage, this can be set as a parameter for the calculations. For example: your own fuel model is 15% and the customer is requesting you to accept his own model that indicates 11%, you would want to add the 4% difference in your base price. In this case you can fix the 4% and they will be flowing in the base price.

Sometimes customers ask you to just give your standard tarifs, but in their own rate card format. Similarly to a full scoped RFQ, Tenderify can convert the customer template into a Unified bidding sheet. The lane information can be extracted from your reference rate cards and entered in the customer template.

As an example: your own rate card for France defines a zone for a multi range: 01 - 02, then Tenderify will unwind the range and enter 01, 02, 03 and then calculate for each weight bracket the rates as given in your reference rate cards. Even with complete different multipliers and rounding rules.
