Freight Audit & Payment

As an industry leader in the freight audit and payment process, we perform an in-depth review of your freight invoices prior to processing for review and payment. During the analysis, our freight audit and payment team captures information from actual carrier invoices, original Bills of Lading and delivery receipts.

Our rigorous and proven processes allow us to identify carrier billing errors and dispute those directly with the carrier. When the carrier has adjusted the invoice and generated a corrected bill, our team will then process it for payment. This streamlined approach eliminates rating errors, duplicate payments and overcharges.

On a weekly basis, freight bills are consolidated into one easy to read invoice and is made available for viewing in our online system.
