Function available to users of the forwarder product line (TFF - Trans for Forwarders) and CargoON.

From this article you will learn how to:

  • negotiate, accept or reject offers
  • propose your price
  • withdraw offers
  • negotiate with several carriers at the same time

When you publish a freight, you can expect to receive messages or offers from carriers, sent to you in the messenger. Open the message to perform one of the below actions.

Negotiatie the offer

After receiving a price proposal from the carrier, enter your freight rate and click Send.

If someone else in your company is assigned as a contact person for a particular freight, they can negotiate with the same carrier at the same time as you.

Click on the clock icon with a number indicating how many people the carrier is now negotiating with. You will see the following sections:

  • Mine, which contains your negotiations with this carrier;
  • Other, with the names the people in your company with whom the carrier is negotiating at the same time.

Accept the offer

Click the Accept button to approve the contractor's offer.

Click on the clock icon to view the negotiation history.

Reject the offer

Click the Reject button to turn down the contractor's offer.

This option does not mean the definitive end of negotiations, but simply a rejection of that particular price offer. Both parties can resume negotiations.

Send your rate

  1. Click on the green Propose a rate button.
