Take care of all your end-to-end processes digitally - from freight tenders, purchasing, and freight rate management with transport partners to invoice auditing, settlement, and billing. Minimize errors by reducing manual data entry and checking your input with algorithms.

Freight procurement simplified

The volatility of freight rates and the difficulty in forecasting capacities are among the greatest challenges in freight settlement and management. Demand is also growing for sourcing strategies with a greater focus on sustainability and reliability. What’s needed are long-term, collaborative partnerships with transport service providers coupled with flexible decision-making processes. AEB software helps you address these very challenges, enabling end-to-end digital procurement strategies on the spot market and when managing calls for bids or tenders.

  • Spot market: Get quotes, compare rates, and award contracts with just a few clicks of the mouse
  • Tender management:Automate your calls for freight tenders and apply templates for standardized, easy-to-compare quotes

Flexible rate management, freight cost calculation and freight settlement

  • Collect and manage freight rates in any format
  • Apply calculation types like weight-based calculation and other parameters and factors such as diesel surcharges, tolls, handling costs, and surcharges for packaging, load devices, and hazardous goods
  • Map even complex calculation schemes and multidimensional rate structures
  • Automate freight cost calculation for shipments based on defined rates and shipping data from shipping or ERP systems
  • Generate cost data quickly for customer freight costs and (automated) carrier selection

Simulations and analyses for enhanced visibility

AEB software helps you make good decisions based on solid, data-driven insights. Prepare calls for tenders quickly and easily, and compare and evaluate rates and tenders from various carriers and parcel services. Or analyze how your freight costs will change if you switch sites, reassign orders, or change the transport or service type. It’s also the ideal tool for negotiations with your transport partners.

Extensive business intelligence and evaluation options mean you always have the big picture on actual freight costs and can run detailed analyses by material, cost center, etc.
