Logistics driven freight audit platform

The philosophy of ControlPay is based on deep logistics knowledge In contrast with other audit or post audit providers who have been traditionally more focused on payments and invoices, ControlPay very much focuses on the logistics data. This approach has led to a very tight process and 100% waterproof audit whether it be pre-audit or post-audit. Customers know that we will always go to the bottom of an issue and that we are very driven to rule out any repetitive issues. This is also driven by the fact that we try to make processes as efficient as possible, low touch for all parties involved.

The highly intuitive interface of our audit platform is based on complex algorithms and a transparent structure forms the basis of the most advanced freight audit platform in the world.

Global coverage

With offices in Europe, Asia and North America, ControlPay employs over 100 audit experts fully dedicated to service customers across the globe.

Structural savings

Based on this unique model, our clients gain structural savings rather than incidental gains. We do not focus on that single invoice correction or incident being resolved. In order to grow, you are looking for structural process improvement from which each monthly, quarterly and annual saving is the direct result.
