Truck transport rates

Truck transport rates comes from different angles at UTURN. One way of deciding on a truck transport rate comes from when a shipper places a shipment. When this is done they will receive quotes. In the end they will decide on what quote they will accept. In this way both parties are in control of the price. One can accept it on basis of certain requirements and the other can bid the price they want to do the work for.

Another way of coming to a truck transport rate is when a carrier places his room. In this case they will receive shipments that can be placed for a certain price. As you can see, both are still in control of the price. Just as before one can accept the shipment on basis of certain requirements and the other can decide to bid for the place or not.

If you´re already working with one or several partners you can also keep the truck transport rates fixed. The system can then be used to keep track of costs that have been made and also to work more efficiently together.
