Smart tendering is practical AI for trucking: software that decides how to tender transport jobs to spot priced carriers.
You can use TNX as a back-end microservice that plugs into your TMS.
Or you can use our website, mobile apps, and email notifications for carriers to receive & respond to spot tenders.
Read the general process of how TNX is used below.
Step 1: Add Loads
Smart tendering starts working when it receives unallocated loads via the API,
through flat-file integration, or when they are created in the app or website.

Step 2: Bundle Loads
The software automatically finds load combinations.
That includes consolidating partloads and also FTL continuous move.
These bundled spot offers are more attractive because they keep the carrier's
truck running fuller, longer. Learn more about
FTL continous move bundling here, and
LTL consolidation bundling here.
Step 3: Strategy
For each load, the software automatically selects the most appropriate strategy for when to make offers,
which carriers to engage, and what the offered price should be.
This is precision-bombing of spot tenders, leveraging AI to get the best carrier per load.

Step 4: Make Offers
Smart tendering ends with specific offers for each carrier.
You can use TNX as a microservice and take the results back to your TMS to
make spot offers to your carriers the way you do today.
Or use TNX as a carrier portal and let carriers interact
over the web, via mobile apps, or integration.
