General questions with application use in FX field.
It is an Internet-based information program. The main application of these programs is road transport of goods as, unlike rail, sea, air and people transport, the market of road transport of goods is the most atomized and has the highest number of operators, due to easy access on the market.
It is true that the name is not the best, but it represents a habit of naming such programs. There is still the possibility that a demand or an offer become auctioned, in the conditions of a market that is poor in demands and offers.
Those who have goods to transport and are looking for a transport solution, publish the description of the goods and the route. Transportation demands are examined by the transporters who use the market. Those interested contact the owner of the announcement and formulate a transport offer. On certain markets, such as BursaTransport, one can publish not only goods to transport but also trucks available for transport. These announcements are used by those who have goods to transport. In BursaTransport understanding, a market is “the place where the transport demand meets the transport offer.”
All markets have the same purpose: to facilitate the meeting between offer and demand. The main difference between transport markets is the geographic area in which they excel, from the point of view of goods to transport: there are local markets that are specific to some countries, there are regional and then international markets.
Another difference is the liquidity offered by that market. Liquidity defines the total number of transport-goods to transport demands.
Plus, we should mention: if the access to the market is for free or one should pay for it, the languages that can be used to access it, the usage facility etc.
First of all, it has the highest number of users who reside in Romania. Then, it has the biggest internal and international liquidity (transport demands) connected to Romania. Thirdly, it is preoccupied by building a community of road transporters of goods, as BursaTransport Administration is in permanent dialogue with its members, on the forum. And last but not least, it is interested to transform the Market in a most secure area of transport contracts transactions.
BursaTransport was designed and published by Dacoda srl (ltd) – itself a Romanian expedition company, in 2000, as a means of Internet communication between expedition companies.
As it did not obtain the audience it had wanted, it published a re-designed version in April 2001, version which is currently still working almost along the same lines. Until January 2004, BursaTransport offered free access, but from that moment on it imposed paid subscriptions for accessing the market. In January 2007, BursaTransport was taken over by Dacodasoft srl, whose main activity purpose is to manage and develop the application.
Under the conditions when there is a high number of requests on the Market, the transporter must only consult the list of available goods using the command « I am looking for goods » and choose from among the results obtained from the search.
If this search was not satisfactory, he can register his truck as being available (free) either on a certain wanted route or at a particular location where the truck is found, by mentioning the name of the location and that the truck is available for any destination. The transporter can ask to be notified by sms on his mobile phone when the right goods for his truck appear on the market.
If the truck only has goods to transport for one way, when he leaves, the transporter can publish his truck as available for the return.
First of all, to identify a transport solution on one way, for the goods received from his clients. Secondly, to find goods for the return of the trucks, which will thus be used both ways ad loaded by two clients. Thus, the expedition company will valorize its position as transport organizer with respect to its subcontractor or transporter.
The trader we are talking about has decided not to assign the task of solving his transport needs to an expedition company or directly to a transporter, as he wants to solve these needs himself. In this case, he publishes his own goods to transport on the market and identifies a one-way transport solution.
BursaTransport estimates that the type of trader who uses the market is the company that has rare road transportation needs, on diverse routes, but has a minimal logistics department and is familiar with the market of road transport of goods.
Yes, to the extent in which the trader has the logistic capacity to ensure his own transports and the expedition company consequently only increases the price by adding the costs of mediating the relationship between trader – mediator – transporter.
No, to the extent in which the trader does not have logistic capacity and his transport needs are so diverse that he cannot use the services of only one contracted stable transporter. Also, there is no competition between transporter and the expedition company if the latter acts as a fleet gatherer belonging to several transporters or if it adds transit, storage and so on to the transportation service.
Moreover, it is worth mentioning the situation when the transporter himself acts as an expedition company in any moment when the transport requests he receives overrule the capacity of his own fleet or refer to routes where his fleet is not available. In these cases, the transporter does not refuse these requests but tries to solve them himself, acting as a mediator.
Transporters who usually work under stable contracts, with a very small number of clients and who own specialized fleets that the routes are traditionally paid for both ways: trailers for powder materials, cisterns of all types, tip lorries. These types of road transport represent a specialized market niche, with a limited number of operators.
The greatest handicap of electronic markets is that they allow to establish contractual relationships almost in real time (orders, order confirmations), with partners that are far away and that the company does not know anything about. If there is no internal procedure when contracting a new partner, the commercial risks become considerable.
The main advantage of the electronic market is the economy of time and costs in the communication with the partners. In order to find a transport solution in times when there were no markets, senders and transporters needed to be contacted one by one and asked the same question: “do you have a truck available for…?” until an affirmative answer was received and a good price. When using a market, it is no longer necessary to make phone calls, but only to post the goods on the market, where it is seen immediately by all those who needed to be contacted.
Access to a marketplace that was normally not reachable without a market, especially for transporters. And last, but not least, in the case of BursaTransport, the integration of one’s own company in a professional virtual community, that of road transport operators who are members of BursaTransport.
By using the command « INSCRIERE COMPANIE » / REGISTER COMPANY. Follow the steps. During registration, it is necessary to have the legal data of the company at hand: name, VAT code, number in the Registry of Commerce (for RO residents), legal representative (administrator), social office (legal). It is worth mentioning that once the company is registered, its first user must register as well, as this is actually the person who is performing the registration of the company.
You can use the application accessing it subscription-based or flexible. For both access types you must buy BursaTransport credits (CRB).
The difference is the charging mode. For subscription-based access, the payment is done once for all the subscription period (6 or 12 months) and for one user. For flexible access the payment is per day-user of BursaTransport usage. The comparison of the daily cost for the 2 access types indicated that for a company that uses BursaTransport at least 2 days per week, it is recommended to use subscription-based access. Flexible access is designed for small companies or for companies that use BursaTransport ocasionally.
An extra-user is any user starting with the second user within the companies with subscription-based access. Because the company subscription only gives the possibility of access for a sigle user. If the company needs more simultaneous users, they activate these extra-users. The extra-user has access on the same period of the company subscription and his access is an extra paid service not included in the value of the subscription.
Active member, inactive member, member suspended for good from BursaTransport.
When registering with BursaTransport, the company receives the status of active member of BursaTransport. As far as at least one of its users is active, the member is active and it appears on the members’ list (the BursaTransport member directory). On the contrary, when a member is not active, it is not listed and it becomes active again when a user is reactivated.
The company may give up its member quality by his own decision, so it is no longer listed in the member directory. The exception is in the situation when it has payment incidents – so it stays listed even if it wants to withdraw, for security reasons regarding members’ transactions on BursaTransport.
Two BursaTransport members with the same VAT code (in Romania, fiscal identification code) cannot be registered.
The member of BursaTransport is the company, while the users are the employees of the company who use the application. All the legal entities subordinated to the BursaTransport member are connected by the same VAT code (workstations, branches etc.).
JUNIOR users have access only to modify their own contact information. STANDARD users can modify anything in the profile of the company they work for and which is a member of BursaTransport.
No difference. They are the same.
In order to increase the security level of transactions, starting with 01.02.2010 an account can no longer be used simultaneously by more people. When the second user attempts to log on, the first user that is already logged will be pushed out of the BursaTransport session, with an advertisement.
Minimum one user. There is no maximum number.
It is advisable that a representative of the company – himself or herself a user of BursaTransport – modify his login parameters so that the former employee can no longer login as a user of the company that he broke the contract with.
This is possible without the intervention of BursaTransport Administration, by entering the Manage company data module. If the former employee was the only BursaTransport user, then the Administration must be contacted immediately.
In the Account management module, the form of the contact person and its user information must be updated by another user of the company; the already activated subscription is kept.
A new user is defined from among the already-defined contact persons on that particular location of the company. Defining the user quality is done by another STANDARD user of the company, in the Manage company data module, without the intervention of the application Administration. The user should be defined before activating a subscription for that user. Activating the subscription can be done by any user of the company, including the new user. In order to activate the subscription it is necessary to buy CRB credits in advance.
The legal office and legal data can only be modified by STANDARD users, not by JUNIOR users. This is done in the MANAGE COMPANY DATA module, by using the command LEGAL COMPANY DATA. As compared to any other modifications in the company data, this legal data once modified is taken over by BursaTransport Administration, checked to be authentic and only then operated. For example, for companies residing in RO, one cannot modify the company name in the Market form unless the new name is found in the Registry of Commerce.
Without BursaTransport Administration to intervene. Go on the MANAGE COMPANY DATA module, use the command MY INFORMATION.
Without BursaTransport Administration to intervene. Enter MANAGE COMPANY DATA module, use the command MY INFORMATION. The username is free to choose, it is no longer compulsory to have an email address, as it used to be before 01.02.2010.
In order to be more visible in the BursaTransport members’ community. The members’ list page offers refined search criteria by which one’s own company can be listed in the search results, if there is information about it. For example: if I perform regular transportation to Finland and I mention this in the COMPANY DESCRIPTION page by using the command COMPANY DATA and the page MANAGE COMPANY DATA, then I will be listed in any search among the 10.000 BursaTransport members, when somebody is looking for a transporter who regularly travels to Finland. Also, if I have someone who speaks Slovenian in my company, those looking for a Slovenian speaker in Romania will only find my company if I have mentioned it.
Another reason for filling in information is that I need to agree for my company to be easily and directly accessible by my business partners.
Only active BursaTransport members are listed in the members’ list – i.e. those members who have at least one user with an active subscription.
BursaTransport recommends that it is called OFFICE. Even if it coincides with the address of the social office, the company works from an OFFICE but only exists legally in a SOCIAL OFFICE.
All those who might be contacted by partners, for the transport activity. If I want my company to be accessible to BursaTransport business partners, mentioning the contact persons’ names and surnames not only facilitates contacting them by partners, in order to solve current issues, but it also makes the company more trustworthy and respectful. The most burning issue is who decides that transportation invoices are to be paid. Mentioning this person and its full contact information keeps the providers from having to interrogate themselves about the status of invoices to be paid.
Because not all contact persons that the company wants to mention in order to be more accessible to its partners must be users. Then, because the additional information of a user as compared to that of the contact person is the username, password and the type of user (STANDARD and JUNIOR).
Any contact person can only be assigned to one location. In this case, BursaTransport recommends assigning the person to the location where it spends the most time.
At the OFFICE location, I will mention a fax and possibly landline phone number and in my contact data I will write my cell phone number. The cell phone does not stay in the OFFICE location, but travels with me in my truck.
It is an addition to the description of the « position ». In this office, there can be several employees with the same position but with different functions. For example: two people sharing the sender position will be in charge of internal transport (function = internal transport), international transport and groupage, respectively. The company becomes more accessible if these attributes are mentioned.
The phones at the location (landlines, mobiles etc.) are common to all the people in that location. Personal phones are only used to contact a particular person. We do not recommend the posting of private phones, but only of those phones belonging to people accessible for professional reasons, if they exist.
The username is one of the 2 parameters that the user provides to authenticate him/herself on BursaTransport. The other parameter is the password.
Talk to the Administration of BursaTransport and present them the situation, briefly.
A CRB is a BursaTransport credit. This notion was necessary because the services are prepaid. If the services would not be prepaid, the costs of following and cashing thousands of invoices would not allow us to use the small prices we have. In this context of prepaid services, the increased number of services and access types have made necessary the implementation of CRB as an internal currency of BursaTransport through which we price all the services,subscriptions and bonuses we give to our clients for their contribution to a safer marketplace.
Because the subscription, even if it still is the main BursaTransport service, is only one of the 2 access types on BursaTransport. Many companies choose flexible access, which means not only a different price, but a different pricing model - 1 CRB per day of usage. But, taking into account the larger number of the CRB purchases for subscription activation, we have implemented a procedure for automatic renewal of the subscription based on customer's option in the moment he buys CRB.
For companies residing in RO: usual payments: cash, bank transfer, postal mandate, credit/debit card in-site. Quick payments: by SMS to short numbers belonging to BursaTransport, in the Vodafone, Cosmote and Orange networks. For companies non-resident in RO: by bank transfer to tone of BursaTransport accounts opened in Romania, Hungary, Moldova, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Bulgaria. The invoices for purchased credits are issued as soon as the receipt has been validated and are downloadable by the users from the BursaTransport website. For payments by SMS you will receive the invoice from the respective phone operator (payments are included in the phone bill). For SMS payments, the invoice is not received from BursaTransport. The purchase of credits is done by using the command BUY CREDITS.
I request the assistance of BursaTransport Administration and use the ISL program, with support received over the telephone.
The credits (CRB) are valid for 6 months from the purchase date, after that they expire.
If I have done this by mistake and I request this operation from the Administration, then yes, the credits can be given back to me and the activation of the subscription can be cancelled.
It means that an user within the company receives access rights on the same period as the subscription paid by the company. The subscription belongs to the company and includes a single user. The subscription’s value in CRB is drawn by the application from the available CRBs of the company. Once the subscription is activated, the BursaTransport member company (re)becomes an active member.
Maximum 2, so that the duration of the subscription should not lead more than one year and a half into the future from the current date.
The company becomes inactive and is no longer visible in the members’ list. But its profile remains in BursaTransport, even it is not visible in members list, and it can always be reactivated with one of the subscriptions or through flexible access.
The flexible access consumes 1 CRB/day of activity on BursaTransport for every user from the company that has activated flexible access. The subscription can be self-suspended by the user whenever he wants, and the self-suspension starts with the following calendar day and unlimitedly. To stop CRB consumption when the company does not use BursaTransport, the flexible access has to be self-suspended, otherwise the consumption of CRB continues even if no user from the company uses BursaTransport. It is similar to switching off the light when exiting from a room, it does not switch off automatically, it has to be switched off. At the next login, the user can reactivate his flexible subscription.
It can be interrupted for minimum one day. On the very day when the user is authenticated again and confirms reactivation, the flexible access starts consuming CRB. If the user decides the interruption today and does the reactivation the day after tomorrow, then the flexible access has been interrupted for one day.
Maximum 6 months, as the unused credits expire 6 months from the payment time.
The Market member (the company) whose subscription-based access expire or has flexible access and no CRB in portfolio becomes an inactive member. By activating new subscriptions or flexible access, the company becomes an active member again. During the time of inactivity, the company is no longer listed in the member directory – except the situation when it has payment incidents.
The removal of the BursaTransport member quality implies: suspending all the company’s accounts and, as a result, the impossibility to access of all company users si ca urmare imposibilitatea accesului in continuarea abonamentelor a tuturor utilizatorilor companiei; it implies the interdiction to access BursaTransport in the future, for the respective company and maybe for other companies that are connected to it.
Yes. During the interruption, the company profile and information remain valid without being visible on the members’ list (except the situation when the company has payment incidents).
The suspension of the Market member (the company) leads to the suspension of all its users, while the suspension of one of its users does not affect the company’s member quality.
Yes, but only if there are repeated suspensions of the user, according to the Regulations.
A complete (temporary) suspension implies forbidden access to all the market’s services, while a partial (temporary) suspension only refers to some services: publishing goods, trucks etc. This differentiation functions both on the level of the users and on that of the company. There are no partial permanent suspensions.
Because the reality of latest years has proved the Administration two things: the first is that the publication of payment incidents cannot be left on the sole responsibility of the declaring parties. As a result, the Administration has asked that payment incidents be documented with a contract, CMR and invoice even if all the postings on the Market are done on the users’ own responsibility and, through them, of the Market members they represent. The second conclusion of the Administration is that, for reasons independent to its intentions, the number of incidents declared has increased a lot and so has the volume of work spent in examining and selecting their documentation. As a result, starting from 01.02.2010, the Administration does not consider that the declaration of payment incidents can be a service included in the BursaTransport subscription, but a payable service.
Because the Administration may be confronted with the situation when those who declare may post inexact details about the debt or repeatedly publish the same debt, either out of carelessness or in the hurry of recovering their debt (invoice). In both cases, it may happen that the image of the incident author (the reclaimed company) be affected without justification. Even if the claimant (the declaring party) takes full responsibility for what he declares about the incident. Generally, in the situation of payment incidents, the Administration does not become an arbitrator or a censor, but makes sure that the declaring parties’ statements be proved with documents.
Because in the field of road transport of goods, a payment promise that is not respected and has a BO/CEC refused by the bank is a most serious thing. This situation leads to the immediate removal of the member quality of the issuing company, if it is a member of BursaTransport. Bringing the situation of a BO/CEC refused by the bank to the attention of BursaTransport represents an important contribution to the enhancement of transaction security on BursaTransport. This is also the reason why the declarations regarding refused BO/CECs are not only free, but also rewarded.
A payment delay is an overhaul of a payment term with maximum 60 days. If the debt is not paid within 60 days, that payment delay becomes a payment incident. In other words, the delay is minor and the incident is major.
For reasons applied by the companies that recover debts, which in general consider that a file can only be studied 60 days after the term of payment has been overhauled.
The incident is firstly declared, then documented by the declaring party with a contract, CMR and an invoice. The documentation is then examined by the Administration. Afterwards, it is brought to the attention of the one complained against (author). If the debt is not extinguished by payment, the incident will be published in 8 days from the moment when the documenting is finalized. With respect to the delay from the term of payment, the publication increments the number of payment delays or incidents of the author (the one complained against) and thus burdens negatively the company history.
The declaration of the incident can be done starting the 2nd day after the term of the called bond.
It means that the incident must be proved with a contract, CMR and invoice and all of these documents have not yet reached the BursaTransport Administration.
It means that the declaring party considers to have finished communicating the proofs of his declaration of a payment incident and the Administration has moved on to checking if the documents support the declaration in all its details (value, term, incident author).
It means that the declaration of a payment incident has been communicated to the author. For 8 working days, the latter has time to extinguish the incident without leaving marks in his history on the Market – or to claim a documented viewpoint which is contrary to the complaining party’s.
It means that the incident documentation either contradicts the declaration or is incomplete.
It means that the author (the party complained against) has documented an alternative viewpoint on the incident, which implies arbitration. BursaTransport only publishes clear incidents that are not ambiguous.
Yes. As a result, the history of the party complained against (author) is not affected by the erased incident.
Payment incidents that are not solved will never be erased from the history. Solved ones are erased 3 years from their liquidation. Solved payment delays are erased 6 months after they have been paid off.
The declaring party’s effort to prevent the BursaTransport community regarding a possible incident situation is much more obvious than in the case of a payment incident. For payment incidents, the interest of recovering a debt by putting pressure on the …debitor with the help of BursaTransport prevails over the good intention to bring new information to the incident history on the Market.
The minimum documentation is the contract. Unfortunately, transport incidents are difficult to document. They refer exactly to situations that are not presented in a contract and are generally very difficult to document. Still, any paper that comes to support the documentation of a transport incident is very useful.
Transport incidents burden the profile of the company complained against for 6 months from their publication.
It is an original measurement system of user’s actions for each BursaTransport member and of the history of user’s postings in the website. Scoring is calculated based on a comparison of each company history with the maximum registered in BursaTransport, or with technical possible maximum, from case to case. The scoring is displayed as a gradual positive score, represented by a set of maximum 4 stars. The maximum score is displayed as a group of 4 stars, the minimum is no stars. In other words, we only prize gradually the excellence. The scores that could have been negative are displayed as no score given. With an explanation: at contractual behavior, if there the company has a less than 2 stars activity of that type (forwarder, carrier) and there are no incidents claimed against the company, the scoring is not calculated and it is displayed NOT APPLICABLE. For the main indicators there is also an evaluation of recent evolutions (last 3 months). Recent trend can show a decrease, unchanging or an increase. Decrease and increase are shown through arrows. No arrows means no change. BursaTransport scoring is not based on the evaluation of general financial information, but is based only on their history registered on BursaTransport. This type of calculation ensures a similar calculation for old companies and for new companies on BursaTransport. The scoring is calculated and displayed for all companies found in member list except the companies with less than one week BursaTransport membership, those with withdrawn membership and those with suspended right of posting loads / trucks.
Activity as a forwarder: depends on the typical activities of a forwarder - the number of the loads and load contracts posted, depends on the truck and truck contracts views. The indicator has, if applicable, a trend that can be constant, ascending or descending. Activity as a carrier: depends on the number of trucks and truck contracts posted, depends on the load and load contracts views. The indicator has, if applicable, a trend that can be constant, ascending or descending. Contractual behavior as customer (the one that gives the load for transport): depends on the number of overdue days reported and the total number of loads published. These information are taken from the payment incidents reported (not only published incidents, but also deleted incidents). This indicator has a trend displayed. If the company DOES NOT HAVE a forwarder activity, then this indicator is not calculated and it is displayed NOT APPLICABLE. Contractual behavior as supplier: (the one that carries the load): depends on the number of transport incidents and published trucks. This indicator has a trend displayed. If the company DOES NOT HAVE a forwarder activity, then this indicator is not calculated and it is displayed NOT APPLICABLE. Rate of BursaTransport Administration: depends on the total number of pageviews from all companies users, on the licence numbers, description of the truck fleet, on the visibility of the company through the communication of reasonable information in users profiles (spoken languages, position, phones and faxes in the office, etc.), on when they were registered to BursaTransport and on how old the company is.
Unlike scoring, which reflects the company’s interaction with BursaTransport, company reports are legal and financial information supplied by ICAP ROMANIA. ICAP is one of the risk evaluators certified by European Union. There are 2 types of company reports: BASIC and COMPLETE. Now, through BursaTransport you can ask BASIC reports only about companies from Romania. They are delivered online, immediately. COMPLETE reports are available about companies from Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia.
It is the difference between a brief information and a detailed information. The difference is also in price and delivery time. For occasional transport contracts, a BASIC reports can be enough to know something about the partner. In case the risk involved by the company is bigger (the total amount of invoices), a COMPLETE report can avoid future problems. Of course, it is recommended to analyze a COMPLETE report and to evaluate the company prior signing a transport contract and prior issuing invoices.
This information is easiest to get from the BursaTransport member form. The form can be consulted in the list of goods, with a link to any goods posted by the users of the respective company. The company form can also be consulted in the members’ list. If the company does not appear in the members’ list, it is either because it is not a BursaTransport member or it is an inactive member. If the company has recorded payment incidents or delays, those incidents can be consulted in the list of payment incidents, searching by the fiscal code of the incident author.
How long it has been a member of BursaTransport for, the year when the company was set up, if it has transport or mediation licences declared as current, the history of goods and trucks published, the history of payment incidents and delays and last but not least, all the information that the particular company published in its profile as BursaTransport member.
In relation to companies residing in Romania. Based on pre-paid credits, we sincerely recommend the application RECOM ON LINE of the Registry of Commerce, www.recom.ro, where one can find information about companies. Payable information on the financial situation of the company can also be found in the List of Companies, www.listafirme.ro and the valid VAT codes of companies in the European Union can be checked on http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies . Although this is not internet-based, we remind the credit reports made by specialized companies, needed before signing bigger contracts that imply significant commercial credits (invoices with a certain term) for your company. It is also worth mentioning the insurance slips for financial risk (in case of not cashing the invoices), which are quite difficult to use but are designed exactly for insuring the risk of non-payment.
We are referring to contracts that are signed on BursaTransport. The first thing is to check that the partner you are signing the contract with is the same company which published the announcement on the Market. Then, check that the full information of your partner (FIC, NRC, social office, administrator) is written in the contract. Check if the value of the contract, the term and delay punishment of the payment are correctly mentioned. If you are a sender, check that the vehicle information is complete: car number, driver (with PIN), mobile phone. Request a copy of the transport or mediation licence and check its validity on the road authority website, www.arr.ro. You can also check the validity of the insurance slip for the carrier’s liability by making a phone call to the issuing insurance company.
We warmly recommend that the car registration certificate is verified, as well as the driver’s identity card. Make photocopies and keep the documents. If the loading is done in a place where you or your employees are not present, strongly insist that the above instructions are followed.
The message warns that somebody else has logged on using your username and password. If you do not discover that it was done by a colleague, announce BursaTransport immediately. Then, from the MANAGE COMPANY DATA page, MY INFORMATION command, modify your login information, as it has, in some way, been found by a third person.
The sections: place of LOADING, place of UNLOADING and tons (gross).
You are helping yourself, by lowering the number of people who will be asking you for the information that you can actually post yourself from the very beginning. We warmly recommend that you publish the transport budget for the goods.
The places where the goods are being loaded and unloaded. We recommend that you mention exactly the location and not an important locality nearby. Thanks to the neighboring system that BursaTransport is working with, the locations you mention will be perfectly accessible to those who read the announcement.
It means the floor area – in the truck depth – required for your goods. A standard truck floor is 2.40 m wide. For example, 3 linear meters (lm) of floor mean that you will be using 4 x 2.40 = 7.20 sqm of the truck floor surface. It is a commonly used attribute for road freight forwarding.
It means dangerous, transportable goods, depending on the class of ratified trucks used for the transport of dangerous goods where it fits.
It means that the goods need to be transported in a truck with controlled temperature, insulated and maybe with a refrigerating unit.
It means that you are accepting that the posted goods be transported in the same truck with goods sent by other clients of the same transporter.
You may describe the nature of the goods, which is usually done in transports. It is also advisable to mention, here, the special weight of the load, if it has one dimension in another size than the other two: for example, a bunch of pipes has a volume of 5cubic meters (volume compatible with any utility car), but a length of 6 lm; specify “length 6 lm”.
The line « goods published » will appear after you have finished the publication. If you want to see it in the list of goods, go to search for goods on the route you have indicated when publishing it. Pay attention to the filters you can formulate, as you can even exclude your goods by mistake.
The name of your company and your own name appear in the list of goods, for active users, under announcement author, in the shape of a link. It is not necessary to mention your contact details when you describe the goods, for example.
Because goods lead to incrementing the counter only after it is consulted at least once or when it has been on the list of goods for a reasonable amount of time.
DEPARTURE, DESTINATION and the date of availability.
Help those who see your transport offer (the available truck) to get information beforehand, without having to call you. By providing all the possible information you will be more visible and famous on BursaTransport.
In the DEPARTURE section, mention the locality where the available truck is. In DESTINATION you have 3 options: 1. the locality where you want the truck to arrive; 2. the country where you want the truck to arrive; 3. if it is available for any destination, including an international one, then leave it empty. Note: national (not international) availability is manifested by writing ROMANIA in the destination section.
It means that, starting with the declared date, the truck is available for … days. If you do not find goods until then, the truck will be erased automatically from the list after that number of days.
Contact the BursaTransport Administration urgently and describe the circumstance.
FTL, short for in English for FULL TRUCK LOAD: complete truck
LTL is English for LESS TRUCK LOAD, i.e. partly available truck, because it already has some load.
They are messages that arrive on the given phone number when goods appear that fit to your search criterion. These goods appear after you have formulated the search. The service is useful in the extent to which you cannot sit in front of the computer in order to find the goods you are looking for. The SMS is a payable service.
It is a heading of future notification SMS that you will be receiving, in order to distinguish which of the published trucks it refers to. For example: you have a small truck with the driver Vasile and a large truck with a driver Emil, both declared available on BursaTransport. You can build the aliases of the 2 trucks by using the names of the drivers VASILE and EMIL or registration numbers etc. This is only relevant for those who publish more available trucks simultaneously, with sms notifications.
You can find a successful confirmation of the registration on the screen, after you have finished publishing. You may also consult the list of available trucks on the route you declared. Pay attention to the search filters that you use, as you could exclude your truck from the results by mistake.
By leaving the UNLOAD section empty. If this section is a locality, the result of the search (also filtered by the other parameters that you formulate) will only comprise the goods that can be loaded within reasonable distance from the locality. If the loading section is a country, then you will see all domestic goods of that country, as well as the exports from that country. Of course, the answer is filtered by other possible search parameters (tonnage, frigo, ADR etc.).
Speaking of tonnage, cubic capacity and floor meters: all goods having tonnage, cubic capacity and floor meters specified.
Speaking of tonnage, cubic capacity and floor meters: FTL, full truck load, complete truck; which means you have entered FTL, so you want a load for a complete truck that has the tonnage, cubage and floor meters described in the search. Actually, goods will be selected that range between -50% and 110% of the capacity that you have described. For example: you have entered 22 to for tonnage, 90cubic m for cubage, 13.60 lm for floor and you have asked for FTL, which means that you have a 22to truck that is usable and you want to find a load for the entire truck; the list will present the loads that have between 11to and 24.20to and a cubage comprised between 45cubic m and 99cubic m, the floor being comprised between 6.80 lm and 14.96 lm. Avoid filling in the search all 3 characteristics in the same time.
Speaking of tonnage, cubic capacity and floor meters: LTL, less truck load, grouped truck; it means you have entered LTL, so you want the goods to complete a partly loaded truck and the available space left has the tonnage, cubage and floor meters presented in the search. For example: you have entered 10to for tonnage, 30 cubic m for cubage, 8 lm for floor and have asked for LTL, so you have a truck that still has usable capacity of 10to, 30 cubic m and 8 lm of floor. The list will select the loads that have a maximum of 10to and maximum cubage of 30 cubic m, a maximum floor of 9 lm. Avoid filling in the search all 3 characteristics in the same time.
You may search from a location to: another location, in a country anywhere. For the 3rd option leave the destination empty, not filled in. Also, you may search from a country to: another locality, country, anywhere. For the 3rd option leave the destination empty. Examples: from Bucharest to Frankfurt am Main; from Bucharest to Bulgaria; from Bucharest anywhere (I have left the destination empty). The set of 2 examples: from Romania to Frankfurt am Main; from Romania to Bulgaria; from Romania anywhere (I have left the destination empty). So the DEPARTURE is either the locality or the country and the DESTINATION is a locality, a country or empty – meaning ANYWHERE.
FTL, full truck load, complete truck. If for example you put 4 in the tonnage section (4 tons), you’ll get the complete trucks with a total useful tonnage of 2to to 4.4to (-50% +110%) in your list.
LTL, less truck load, truck that is already partly loaded. If for example you put 4 in the tonnage section (4 tons), you will get the already partly loaded trucks in your list – those that still have a minimum of 4to useful space to load.
It means the latest 50 announcements or, if they are few, the announcements of the last hour.
When searching among countries, the list shows the freshest announcements first. If the search is among localities, then the list is in the order that suits one best: the first listed are those with the least dislocations.
It means the activation of the service for automatically refreshing the current list – the one you have on your screen. All transactions that fit the already formulated search criterion will pop up on the screen without you having to touch the keyboard. Also, the transactions appear but they are erased after you have formulated your request. This service allows you to avoid formulating the same searches many times, which you would do in order to obtain the most recent transactions published.
It means that, while on automatic refresh, the respective transaction has showed up AFTER you had already formulated the request. The transaction was shown to you because it fits the already formulated search criterion.
They mean that the transaction has been erased from BursaTransport.
Transactions having the NEW symbol appear as they are being published. Pay attention, thus, to a search criterion formulated between 2 localities: when NEW transactions appear, the order of the list by the suitability criterion is lost.
Posted at the end of the list with the most recent/suitable answers, the button means that the search results can be extended. A longer list is obtained, with longer time for the page to load.
By using the name-company link. A separate page is opening, with all the useful information about the company.
It means that the author of the announcement (the Market member company) has at least 2 unpaid payment delays, one of which is already an incident. The symbol is intended to warn the other Market members involved in receiving the goods about the fact that they might encounter a certain risk when cashing.
It means that the author of the announcement (the Market member company) has at least 3 unpaid payment delays, none of which has overhauled 60 days from its term. The symbol is intended to warn those interested in the transaction that they can, in their turn, be faced with cashing delays.
It means that the transaction has been marked by another user, who found it expired (if it is goods to transport, he found it “given”, if it is an available truck, he was answered that “it is no longer available”). In order to keep only the valid information on the market, the authors of the transactions have the duty to erase them when they are solved. The marking comes to punish the situations when the rules are not respected and also to warn others not to call for any reason.
In the page you get when accessing the link author of the announcement. The marking is done on one’s own responsibility and is heavily punished by the regulations if it is proved to have been done randomly or with ill intent.
You will find answers to the extent in which fleet owners mention that they have frigo trucks in their roll stock or – as they are usually called – TK from Thermo King (similar with the name Xerox used for copying machines). Frigo trucks can be mentioned in the company description. Look for the word FRIGO in the company description field.
Because the routes are claculated depending on the maximum admitted tonnage and they are published by the CNADNR (former AND) – the national company for highways and national roads of Romania. Depending on the large classes of vehicle weights, distinct routes are calculated. If the result is only one convenient route for the heaviest vehicles, only one valid answer will be formulated for all classes of vehicles.
Because each segment corresponds to a maximum admitted tonnage. The tonnage classes are designed by the BursaTransport Administration to facilitate usage, thus: vans that can be driven with B-category permit (maximum mass 3.5 to), trucks of 7.5 to maximum weight (light trucks) and for road trains, the weight on the axis, which is the most sensitive parameter of the road train, on 3 distinct categories of roads classified by CNADNR. The interrogation example recommended by BursaTransport tariff list in order to understand its functioning is Bucharest south-east – Brasov.
It is the original BursaTransport approach, applied in Bucharest and other few large cities of Romania. The traffic in Bucharest is so congested that physical distances of about 10km make a difference. That is why we considered that it is useful to mention which area in Bucharest is the destination of a calculated route. When driving between Pitesti and Bucharest with a 40to truck, the distance is between 112 km (Bucharest west, exit on the highway) and 149 km (Bucharest east, Pantelimon). If we say that the duration of driving the second route is at least double, BursaTransport tariff list makes a difference.
I can ignore it or I can communicate it to BursaTransport Administation. Not all administrative restrictions are very visible on the Internet, as CNADNR has regional offices that decide upon these locally, without them being published as a whole on the CNADNR website.
BursaTransport Administration recommends searching the company by its fiscal identification code, in the AUTHOR field.
BursaTransport Administration recommends searching the company by its fiscal identification code, in the DECLARANT field.
It means the expression of agreement of disagreement with the respective posting. A posting can be “voted” only once by one user.
Example: -1 (11 votes). It means that the posting has been voted by 11 users and the final score is -1. There were 5 pros and 6 cons. (A+B=11,A-B=-1, therefore A=5, B=6)
It means that the subject has been closed by a moderator of the discussion list, because it was out of context.
Coming out of context most often means discussions about payment incidents that have to be declared and, once documented, published on the page dedicated to payment incidents. It also often means discussions about various transactions connected to the advertisement page. An intervention upon a subject is considered out of context if it is not related to the subject.
For cheques or promissory notes, ot for any type of payment orders through bank documents that do not have coverage at due time for any reason. The bonus is 28 CRB and if the issuer of the payment document without coverage is not already a member, he will never be allowed to use BursaTransport. If he is already a BursaTransport member, his access rights will be withdrawn.
Forwarding is a resonable and acceptable activity on BursaTransport if the price asked to the client by the forwarder is bigger than the price promised to the carrier by the forwarder. Otherwise, if the forwarder promises the carrier a bigger price than the price offered to the client, we consider that the forwarder tries to fraud the carrier. Documentation of a certain case of this type by the carrier or by the client gives the right to that company to have a 28 CRB bonus and the membership of the forwarder will be withdrawn.
- When the contract is received from other company than the one that published the load.
- If the confirmation of the contract comes from other company than the one that published the truck
- If the invoice is supposed to be issued to other company than the one that published the load.
- If the invoice for the transport comes from a different company than the one that confirmed the truck
For any of the above situation, we give a 28 CRB bonus to the company that reports and sends documents that prove those situations.
The purpose of all the bonuses given is to obtain an increased level of safety of the transport transactions initiated on BursaTransport
