Freight audit and payment has been for a very long period mainly about leveraging data—scrutinizing invoices to discover overbilling that cost shippers thousands of dollars in erroneous rates and accessorial charges. No question, ferreting out errors is still important. But many freight audit and payment companies are now delivering an entirely different set of benefits using the data shippers share about their freight bills.
Freight Audit platform
We have always had an international focus being based in Europe and took the collaborative nature of international processing to our platform. This means that our platform has a very high degree of visibility for both shipper and carrier. Also the lack of standardization in transportation regarding rates, business rules, ways of calculation have been taken into account when we set up our system. That is why we are very flexible in handling many different rate structures, different rules and calculation methods.
We have built our own Freight Audit platform and as a matter of fact we are still building it. We have a team of almost 20 IT professionals who are developing new features and functionalities on an on-going basis. Monthly we have a new release of our system. Our platform is built in Java and fully web based. It is also the most advanced audit platform available in the market today and has a very user-friendly interface with a transparent structure. This platform is seamlessly interconnected with a Business Intelligence platform.
