The SAIL Process

1 Discover

Attracting the right parties to collaborate is an important first step. Instead of wasting time searching for interested parties that may or may not end up to be quality collaborative partners, the SAIL network is already established with pre-qualified parties that are willing to collaborate. We understand the needs, obstacles, and business drivers of enterprise supply-chains and find compatible organizations.
Self Discovery with BEACON by TidalSeven

  • Create a profile of you for matching with other partners
  • Align with your company goals and initiatives
  • Identify existing internal collaboration drivers
  • Understand your business culture
  • Complete initial lane analysis and ROI study


2 Connect

To find and set up collaboration between parties already on the network, your profile of dimensions is used to create the best match possible. Lane volume/capacity, equipment type, service platform, and even collaborative goals are used to ensure matched parties have the best odds of successful transportation collaboration. This results in time savings and greater execution success by having you work with parties that are dedicated to working with you. You don’t search for your collaborative partners, we match them with you.

  • Determine collaborative partners based on profile of dimensions
  • Run a complete lane analysis and ROI study
  • Form your Virtual Private Fleet (VPF) with partners to share capacity / freight


3 Steer

Finding available lanes to share is great. But once they are found, how do you pull the most value out of them and work through challenges when they arise? With the guidance of TidalSeven, partners can rest assured they have a transparent neutral third party working to keep collaborative lanes running smoothly. In addition, TidalSeven assists to keep time to execution minimal and benefits mutually meeting or exceeding partner goals.
