Spend Overview

The Spend Overview page ties together your freight volume and its associated prices with the rest of the market.

Overview

For an in-depth look at the Spend Overview page, read our help center article.

The Spend Overview helps you understand how much your freight prices can improve in terms of dollar value. Xeneta refers to this as the Saving Potential — the theoretical savings that can be achieved if the prices you paid for freight matched the price paid by different segments of the market.

Spend Overview categories.

Like the My Prices page, selecting a category from the Spend Overview will group your prices based on your selection.

Clicking on a row in the Spend Overview page will take you to the All Spend tab, which will use your selected row as a filter for your spend.

All Spend

The All Spend tab shows your port-to-port spend and your savings potential — along with other details like your supplier for the trade lane and the container type that was used.

My Spend Details

Clicking on a row on the All Spend tab will open up a dialog that provides additional details about your port-to-port freight rate. The bottom of the dialog contains the Open Trade Lane Graph button, which will take you to the Benchmarks graph for the selected trade lane with all associated filters pre-set.
