Thanks to TC eBid®, the European-wide online tendering platform, they entered into a successful cooperation. Initially, La Martiniquaise merely wanted to test TC eBid®. The spirits producer was searching in the platform for new business partners with specific characteristics for selected routes. No problem with TC eBid®: through the tendering platform, shippers can specify their needs to the haulage contractors and consequently search more efficiently for business partners. Hinterland met their profile needs and placed his bid for free. Lucky strike for both, as a result of the original encounter a partnership was developed.
La Martiniquaise was looking for an efficient and fast user friendly tool... TC eBid® convinced them completely after the first test.
"TC eBid®: only invites haulage contractors to our tenders that are previously selected entirely according to our requirements. This way we obtain an optimised list of suitable haulage contractors with their bids. Finding reliable haulage contractors that can meet the needs of the shippers takes specific know-how, which is not necessarily ours, but is TIMOCOM's!". (Madame Lyet, Purchasing Manager La Martiniquaise).
