Market Monitoring

The comprehensive data and analytics in the SONAR freight platform help you forecast and track freight capacity and keep freight spending under control.

Outbound Tender Rejection Index

The OTRI dashboards allow supply chain teams to visualize freight movement patterns, volatility, and price movement. The Outbound Tender Rejection Index shows supply and demand dynamics at a national, regional, state, or market level. This index helps you make decisions on accepting or rejecting loads based on tender rejections.

Outbound Tender Volume Index

The Outbound Tender Volume Index (OTVI) is the most up-to-date and reliable indicator of market demand. Use this index to see which markets are shipping the most freight, along with the trends and changes in freight volumes. OTVI shows you where freight is available in a market. Use OTVI in conjunction with the Outbound Tender Rejection Index (OTRI) to optimize your freight rates.
