Post Freight Invoice Auditing & ongoing Carrier Invoice Reconciliation
Freight Audit Services
At Freight Controller, Freight Auditing incorporates Carrier Invoice Reconciliation (CIR) for accurate freight costing that ensures you only pay what you should, but it goes beyond that, to incorporate a comprehensive Freight Auditing process.
Rather than processing the same types of costing errors at each invoice we look beyond the symptoms to the causes, and work with you to eliminate them. This can be done because we are comparing not just carrier invoice data against carrier rates data but also the manifest data coming out of your warehouse.
This enables an examination of not just whether the right rate has been applied but also an examination of factors such as the charge weight, and any surcharges.
We can provide a Post Invoice Freight Audit that scopes backward many months and assist you with putting in place with your carriers a reclaiming process, or we can work to audit your invoices moving forward.
Carrier Invoice Reconciliation
Every week, your manifest data and the carrier’s invoice data is fed to our Carrier Check system to be cross verified against one another and your rate cards housed in our system. Our Carrier Check system can reconcile thousands of consignments on a line-by-line case within minutes.
Where needed an expert cleric can review further for post dispatching discrepancies such as redelivery fees.
A report is provided typically on a weekly basis for all carrier invoices with Credit Note report. Individual processes can be applied depending on individual scope of your needs.
A freight analyst can provide that comprehensive freight auditing process mentioned above of reviewing for new errors creeping in due to change of carrier, freight profile, systems changes, etc.
