- Rejected offer is an Load offer which has been rejected by a Carrier
- Refused offer is an Truck offer which has been refused by a Shipper/Carrier
To make an offer to a specific submission (Load or Trip) there are two options:
- Select from your already posted submissions
- Post a new submission
When your submission is ready to be sent as an Offer for a specific submission (as for example in the image below the Truck submission will be send as an Offer for the Load submission) you should fill your Price and click on the Send button.

Then the accepted price becomes a contracted price and there is no way to be amended. Both parties are warned about it by a checkbox when sending a Price offer as follows:
For Shipper: * You must confirm that you are going to contract at price you offer, if the Carrier accept it!
For Carrier: * You must confirm, that if you accept the Shipper price, it will be the final CONTRACT price!
