European premiere at Intermodal Europe 2010

Transport Marketplace is officially launching an entirely redesigned version of its software at Intermodal Europe 2010.

The company is currently expanding its commercial activity over Europe by opening a new branch office in Rotterdam and it considers the Amsterdam trade show as the best way to promote this move in 2010.

"The exhibition is a UNIQUE opportunity for visitors to register early and win some free (1) TM Credits (2)"
The project

Transportmarketplace brings together the demand and supply from worldwide multimodal shippers and carriers and enhances their efficiency through cloud computing (3).

The marketplace was built to be simple:

  1. The shipper initiates a transaction by posting a freight offer to the system
  2. The carrier quotes the freight offer that matches his activity
  3. The shipper chooses the best quote and places the order
  4. The carrier then has the option to accept or decline the order
Transportmarketplace ensures the quality of its users:
  • The shipper rates the carrier's performance
  • The carrier confirms having received the shipper's payment
Based on the success of transactions, the european Win & Pay economic system rules the relations between Transport Marketplace and its users :
  • The shipper pays 2 TM Credits (2) per quotation received within 48 hours
  • The carrier pays 4 TM Credits (2) per order he accepts
