Understanding Freight Audit

With the complexity of carrier agreements, loads of accessorial fees, and guaranteed commitment times, auditing freight bills is a time consuming process. In the last several years, many providers have sprung up. "Do you know what your cost saving initiatives are?" Most of them focused only on small parcel service failures. Few providers have the ability to audit against the complexity of the carrier agreement. Even fewer have the ability to audit all modes of transportation and do it well. We at Logica, take pride in our ability to provide a complete audit of all modes which is highly focused on technology and a team of billing experts. Not only do we audit everything but we work with the carrier to adjust the bill prior to payment. What does this mean to you? More savings, more confidence in your audit partner, and better insight into your transportation spend.
