Transactional Expectations Form
TEF was specifically created to solve the issue of nondeclared expectations. TEF sets the expectations and clarity around the dark spaces when a shipment passes through various stages. This is important because most of the failures and delays that happen in the industry are not a result of unmet expectations, but rather unstated expectations. What makes TEF so powerful is that once expectations are unified, actual accountability with freight forwarders is possible. Contact us now so we can get TEF working for you.TEF working for you.

When we did our research, we discovered that this was a key issue. We went to survey shippers and found out they were having the same issue. Frustrations around ready dates not being communicated correctly. The shipment doesn’t pick up when it was supposed to but you’re not told that. You’re not told anything until it’s in transit, at which point in time key information for devising alternative solutions is far gone.
Collaborative communication between buyer and seller and the transportation provider. Everybody agreeing to ready and pick up dates and sailing or flight options, which are not normally covered in industry communication protocols. Sharing documentation with Letters Of Instructions, ISF, Commercial Invoice and Packing List so everyone has it prior to departure. Not getting burned by AMS.
How TEF Solves It
TEF starts at the conception of a shipment and clearly defines expectations, responsibilities, and roles of all parties involved. It also highlights expectations and allows for changes to be made before it is set in motion. This removes failures at the latter stages of a shipment due to addressing vendor accountability before the shipment even begins.
