Cataloguing Savings in Freight – Before They’re Needed
Major European retailer wanted to re-negotiate Land freight for 2016-17.
Goal was to create a freight catalogue containing prices, lead times and delivery modes for EMEA.
The freight catalogue would be used in last minute delivery situations so that client could easily pick the best delivery mode without time-consuming negotiations.
Quotes requested for multiple destinations in 9 different countries.
11 Suppliers were invited to participate in the eAuctions.
Two CherryLot Auctions created, each with one lot per country and multiple lines in each lot corresponding to the different destinations.
1st CherryLot Auction contained 6 countries, with 1-7 destinations in each lot.
2nd CherryLot Auction contained 4 countries with 5-15 destinations in each lot.
Suppliers required to bid for two different delivery modes: Full truckload with boxes and Full truckload with garments on hangers.
For the remaining destinations with low volume, an RFQ CherryLot was run after the primary eAuctions. Bidders requested to match savings from primary eAuctions.
All suppliers participated actively in both eAuctions
1st eAuction: Average savings of 8,50% relative to current price.
2nd eAuction: Average savings of 5,63% relative to current price.
RFQ for low-volume routes: 7,65% savings relative to current price.
