  • Lanes, from/to location on different levels
    • Country

    • Zipcodes

Lanes, from/to location on different levels

    • Country
    • Region (BeNeLux, South of Germany, ..)
    • Cities
    • Zipcodes

◘ Define a preferred supplier for a customer

Lanes, from/to location on different levels

  • Country
  • Region (BeNeLux, South of Germany, ..)
  • Cities

Those suppliers cannot be selected in the 'Select Supplier' and 'Send Quotation Request' processes.

◘ Define a blacklisted supplier for a customer

Multi stops

We have introduced the multistop functionality for the quotation Request module. This makes it possible to request spot prices for multiple collect & deliver stops.


◘ Quotation Request with multiple stops

Spot Price request Form

Added a lot of functionality to th eQuotation Request  form:

  • multi stops
  • add alternative prices for different collect/deliver dates and times
  • maximum price check
  • proposed price
  • access to added documents
  • ....

◘ Quotation Request Form

Responsible Person

It's now possible to define a Responsible Person for a Quotation and for a Dossier.


  • filter on Responsible Person
  • Notification are send to the Responsible Person and all Notification Group members
  • Change the Responsible Person transaction to hand over responsibility.
  • New responsible person will be notified

◘ Responsible Person for Quotation

Intermodal orders

A valuable development is the registration of closing and available data of a boat, train and plane. For example, during the planning, the closing and available data can be taken into account, so that a load is always delivered on time for further transport with a different modality.

◘ Vessel information

GDPR Compliant

To make our application GDPR-proof we have added an extra function. All data of a person or user can now be anonymised. In this way, data can no longer be traced to a person, but only to an ID number.

◘ Delete Person


Notification Groups


◘ Define a Notification Group

M&R Improvements

A number of improvements have been made for the M & R software. This mainly concerns a number of improvements in the Portal for third parties. For example, no version numbers are now shown with temporary versions. For the user this works much more pleasant because only version numbers are created when a version is definitive. Another innovation is the automatic display of the contact person on the estimate.

◘ M&R Estimate Line

Software Quality

Automatic Testing

We are testing our programs automatically. In this part you see the number of test cases which are running. Goal is to have all processes automatically tested. New functionalities and reported bugs will always be included in an automatic test case by extending an existing test case or making a new test case. With this overview we want to inform about the number of test cases we are running. It's a strategic choice to give this Automatic Testing our full attention. As our application is expanding and expanding it's impossible to test all different possibilities by hand and guarantee the quality our customers expect from us.

◘ Example of Test Case (partly)
