Dynamic Freight Pricing
How shippers can get guaranteed coverage for their primary, backup, and spot freight
As the past year has shown, static contract rates often diverge from the market when it’s volatile, leading to higher tender rejection rates and sending shippers down their routing guides. Since most routing guides are built using static rates, backup carriers may reject tenders for the same reason primary carriers do, resulting in lost time, higher prices, and more hassle. The problem stems from a fundamental conflict in freight: static pricing and dynamic markets.
The market has always been dynamic, and for a long time static pricing was a shipper’s only option. But not anymore.
