Supplier Collections

There has been a growing trend, particularly amongst retail and wholesale companies, towards the collection of orders directly from, providing a transport service and charging the supplier for this service. This service can be provided using own fleet, 3PLs or ad hoc hauliers.

It is also often necessary to get sign-off on transactions by three companies – supplier, transport provider and buyer. CarrierNet can handle these issues in real-time.
