ABSTRACT
This article looks at the development of online freight markets and what they offer the freight and logistics sector. The Internet is a tool that is being used more often by all business sectors and business-to-business electronic commerce is increasing. Electronic freight markets are currently leading this development in the freight and logistics sector. The most common service offered by the electronic freight markets is the auction. Some electronic freight markets are now offering companies the opportunity to set up and take part in tenders. While the concept of tenders is easy to understand, designing an effective tender process is more complicated.
