Speed and simplify complex procurement of truckload, LTL, rail, and intermodal transport.

Keelvar easily scales to support everything from smaller, frequent reactive spot bids up to your large-scale annual ground transportation RFPs.

We do this while giving your logistics buyers the best solution to quickly make optimal decisions based on your specific business requirements, as well as automation capabilities to expand those benefits.

Ground transportation annual RFPs are one of the largest spend categories for many companies, characterized by complexity; high numbers of carriers, lanes, and alternatives; and many scenarios to evaluate before awarding the business. Buyers also regularly face the need to conduct spot bidding as supply chain and business conditions change.

Keelvar’s sourcing optimization and automation solutions help transportation procurement teams and Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PLs) significantly streamline these processes while reducing risks. This covers a range of spend types, including Truckload (FTL); Less-than-truckload (LTL); Rail; Intermodal; Small Parcel; and Drayage.
