We cover all transportation modes

OCEAN

Typical issues we come across in ocean freight audit:

  • Incorrect consolidation
  • Too many accessorials applied
  • Unclear conversion rules

We manage ocean freight audit on behalf of many customers that ship either via Forwarders or with the shipping lines directly. Ocean Freight Audit has a natural complexity of often having multiple modes included in one shipment. This also often means: multiple invoices for the same shipment; changing surcharges and accessorial costs. The Freight Audit platform is well equipped to manage all these specifics and our staff is well trained to handle exceptions around ocean shipments.

ROAD

Typical Road billing issues:

  • No consolidation used
  • No rounding rule applied
  • Frequently changing accessorial costs
  • Unclear calculation rules
  • Duplicate shipments

Our Freight Audit system has been tuned to manage the specifics of road shipments flawlessly. Additionally, our Audit staff is trained in managing accessorials and understanding business rules that influence calculation. Road shipments fall into either the LTL or FTL category. LTL is by far the most challenging one. However, our Audit platform is flexible and can handle things like: the absence of standards in LTL rate structures; numerous different charges and business rules that influence the price.

AIR

Typical issues we come across in air freight audit:

  • Incorrect consolidation
  • Too many accessorials applied
  • Unclear conversion rules

Air shipments often come with unforeseen costs and we have developed an easy to use functionality to efficiently manage, approve and register these costs. As such, we work with all the large forwarders around the globe. Understanding and creating a good air rate card is key to an efficient operation and paying the right price for air shipments. We actively engage with the customer to optimize rate cards wherever it’s beneficial.

RAIL

As a Europe-based auditor, we have had to master the complex rail shipping structures faced by multinational clients with European operations.

 

Railway transport is best suited for carrying heavy and bulky goods over long distances, while also providing cost-saving opportunities. The downside of this method is that Routes and Timings cannot be adjusted to individual requirements. We audit shipments by rail on a daily basis and has considerable experience in this area.

PARCEL AUDIT

Correct billing of parcel shipments can often be far more complex than shippers often expect. Learn more about the complexity of parcel freight billing and how to eliminate parcel invoice errors using a Freight Audit solution. Many companies save up to 5% of their parcel freight spending. Use the button to open the infographic.

 

We audit many millions of parcels each year. The ever-growing parcel industry makes audit more and more important, not only for cost savings but for claims, KPIs and pure visibility.


Different providers in different countries have varying set-ups concerning rates and invoicing. In the U.S., there are only 2 main providers to work with and their set-up is completely different from any provider in Europe. This makes expertise and experience with different carriers across many different countries very important.

 

Thanks to our experienced staff and flexible Audit platform, we are able to connect every parcel carrier ensuring full data integration. At the same time, we preserve our flexibility in how carriers want to deliver their data. This approach is particularly important to the largest carriers that value custom-tailored Freight Audit solutions for their business.
