Tender Management and Reviews

The Review Process

A freight review can be difficult to complete if you have not organised your data for easy reference. Transport information is generally scattered across multiple sources and formats.
Factor Freight Solutions consolidate and harmonise this freight information into a single database, where we can develop cost and service profiles to understand all the aspects of the activity. This element of the process is critical to achieving a successful review.
