The requirements to initiate either of our audit programs are quite simple and involve minimal work on your behalf.

Our Procedure:

  • Assemble and send all inbound, outbound, and third-party freight bills paid to your various mode carriers, which include truck, rail, air, ocean, or parcel carriers
  • Assemble and send all carrier contracts, tariffs, pricing items, rate sheets, mileage programs
  • Each bill is examined by a transportation mode specialist, and checked for various types of accounting and rate errors
