RFQ/ Tender management

Following a structured Request-For-Quotation process is one of the keys to ensure best in class logistics procurement Kelmer has developed its own process based on 20+ years of experience, with some golden rules:

Design a perfect baseline, to ensure best possible understanding of transport profile, analysis reliability and optimal offers comparisons

Timing is critical, pick up the right momentum in order to maximise opportunities and minimize current suppliers threats

Digitalization is a must, all quotes are collected with a web portal and are analyzed with dedicated software

Calculation capabilities must be unlimited, we don't want to lose opportunities

Win-win targets have to be arranged to encourage proactive participation and offer business volume commitments in exchange for commercial efforts
