The specifics of the EMEA Freight Audit market gathered in one graphic:
This graphic shows the summary of the challenges, characteristics and main providers of freight audit services typically for the EMEA region, for the year 2015.
Freight Audit in Europe does not have a regulatory history and is therefore less common and not known as a concept.However, there are several German companies who offer Freight Audit services to the German market already since the eighties. The companies that started to use Freight Audit services in Europe were the US companies that were expanding in Europe and that already were using Freight Audit in the US.
This started at the end of the nineties, beginning of 2000. From 2000 to 2009 there was rather a slow growth in the Freight Audit market although more US customers in Europe found an audit provider.
Since 2010 the growth has accelerated, mainly because international complexities in logistics are driving the need to have a freight auditor. This is driven by lack of visibility, the need for control, cost savings and the need to pay carriers on time.
