TAKE CONTROL WITH DYNAMIC PRICING

Securing backup coverage can be like trying to stop a line of falling dominoes. Your primary carrier rejects a load, and valuable time is lost with each tender as you work through your routing guide.

Convoy’s dynamic pricing gives you peace of mind in knowing you won’t need to wait for coverage, or pay higher last-minute prices on the spot market. We do this by inserting real-time market rates directly into your routing guide, letting you instantly book loads with guaranteed tender acceptance.

A better approach to backup

  • Save time: Get instant coverage and help prevent service failures in tight markets
  • Save money: Avoid expensive, last-minute spot market rates
  • Rest easy: Ship with carriers 16% safer than the industry average

We’ve partnered with leading TMS providers to make it easier than ever to get Convoy’s dynamic pricing. If your TMS provider is shown below, simply let them know you’d like to enable the Convoy real-time pricing integration, and you’ll be up and running quickly. If you don’t see your TMS provider below, you can still get Convoy’s dynamic pricing—contact us to get started.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does Convoy’s dynamic pricing work?

When your primary contract carrier rejects a load, you fall back to your routing guide. Each time a backup carrier rejects the load, more valuable time is lost. With less time to find a truck, prices increase, and the possibility of a service failure looms.

Convoy’s dynamic pricing inserts a real-time market rate into your routing guide with guaranteed tender acceptance. This means that, if you choose Convoy as your backup carrier, we guarantee instant tender acceptance and coverage, giving you peace of mind that you’ll avoid higher prices on the spot market when capacity is tight.
