Avantida gives you several options to match and share a reuse with a colleague transporter. With our tool 'Match empty container' we can offer more options to find matches in our system, or to share your import container or export booking!
To meet your requirements, and to make this tool more visible and easier to use, we have made some improvements in 2 tabs of the application: ‘available containers/bookings’ and 'created by me'
We are pleased to announce that we can show you these steps. What has exactly changed?
This is how it looks like in the first tab 'available containers/bookings:
Login to platform.avantida.com, go to the application ‘match empty container’ and choose the first tab ‘available containers/bookings’.
Use the filters to check if someone has posted an offer that could match with what you have. (import or export)
Type: here you choose between import containers OR export bookings
If you see a possible match, click on ‘details’ to have all information needed about the container number or export reference:
You can check the matches that are found in our system. Go to ‘view matches’:
You are able to contact the company who posted an offer per e-mail, copy and share the link to ask questions/make arrangements. If no matches are found on the platform, you can click on ‘view matches’ anyway and issue a ‘custom’ reuse request with your own details.
Choices you will see is to choose for the options given by the system, based on offers posted for your import container or export booking. Or ,you can still create a ‘custom’ reuse request with your own details :
You now have a normal pending reuse request in your reuse overview.
As soon as the shipping line approves it you are ok to go.
If there is no convenient offer for you in the list, you can actively post your offer so other transporters can find it in the list:
In the tab 'created by me' you have an overview of your posted offers.
If needed you can filter on import containers/export bookings:
By clicking on the 3 dots behind the post, you will be able to view details and matches, cancel, send a link, or issue a similar offer:
If you want to proceed with a match, you can just choose for the option and 'create your request' from here!
