There are three main benefits to using our freight auditing and payment services:
We save you money by auditing your freight bills before payment. Our average audit savings is $4.25 for each non-parcel freight bill that we audit.
Your administrative expenses are reduced since you no longer have to process and pay numerous carrier bills. Recent independent studies have shown that the cost for you to audit and process a single bill is estimated to be $13. Our fees are under $1.
We capture all of your logistics information during the auditing process. This information is now available for reporting and analysis to help you run your business more effectively.
