There are different settings you can adjust for quotes that you create within the Shipper TMS. This includes toggling on Bid Duration, adjusting the length of a time bids will remain open, and giving only your most trusted Network Partners the ability to receive Auto Tenders or use the Book It Now feature on quotes you build using the Auto Book feature.
