Transport customers can create transport orders centrally, from a single system

The TIMOCOM Smart Logistics System allows you to create transport orders directly from your freight offers. You can also create and manage additional transport orders within the system. Your business partner doesn’t even have to be a Smart Logistics System member!

Applies to:

  • Transport orders
  • Freight

Keep an eye on all your assigned transport orders

Is creating and managing your transport orders in different systems costing you time and getting on your nerves? A suitable service provider replied to your freight offer and you now have to find the address information and send them the order?

There’s a better way! In the TIMOCOM Smart Logistics System, you can create an order from the offer with a single click, then simply enter your business partner’s TIMOCOM ID. The system makes it possible for you to centrally create and manage all your transport orders – so you always have the latest information on your orders.

Tutorial: how to add transport orders to the system

Did you create your freight offer using the freight application?

Then it couldn’t be easier: in the freight application, simply click on ‘Order’.

You can then select “Create order and delete offer” for one-time offers, or “Create order and keep offer” for freight offers that need to be assigned more than once. You have then created a transport order directly from your freight offer, so there is no need to enter the relevant information twice. Simply fill in any additional required fields.

Tip: if your business partner is also a TIMOCOM user, select “with TIMOCOM ID” at the top of the order. This automatically imports all information from your business partner’s company profile.
