Summary

Since lead time are short and equipment tight we add carriers to our outstanding tenders until someone responds - can this be handled in OTM?

Content

We have a lot of smaller owner operator carriers that we use - for the last few years, before OTM, we've been using a method where we tender to our best lowest cost carrier first then if they don't respond in a couple hours we open up another tender for our next lowest price carrier - but we keep the first tender open.  We keep adding carriers to the list until we have no more carriers to tender to or we run out of time - the first carrier that responds back get's the business.  Is this something that OTM can support? 

Howdy, Stranger!
