Freight carriers, vendors, outside payment agencies, and even payable employees make errors in billing. A freight bill post audit encompasses the review and audit of all paid freight bills. This service is performed for clients who pay their own freight bills, those who employ third-party payment providers, a logistics provider or 3pl, or any other type of bill payment or bill processing service.
What this means is that your company recovers money that has already been spent, with no upfront cost to you!
Due to both government and individual carrier-imposed Statute of Limitations, the timely receipt of freight bills for audit, and the subsequent filing of overcharge claims is very important. The time restraints for the filing of overcharge claims by mode is as follows:
Air Freight, Ocean Freight, and Freight Forwarders:
30 - 180 days
LTL and Truckload Carriers:
Parcel and Small Pak Carriers:
As a result of the above limitations, we encourage all of our clients to send their freight bills, images, and data files for audit on a monthly, but no longer than a quarterly, basis.
The requirements to initiate our audit programs are quite simple and involve minimal work on your behalf.
