Bid Management allows the shipper to modify or submit bid responses on behalf of event participants. This can be done on a lane by lane level or you can modify responses by participant. After you modify a bid response, existing scenarios will need to be re-run to ensure the most updated bid information is included.
NOTE: Bid Management is not available until the bidding window has closed and late bidding has ended and before awards have been published.
