Advantages of Outsourcing Freight Bill Audits

If frequent shipping of freight is your business or is part of your core field of work, one specific task you often deal with is the processing of the freight bills. Based on the size of your operation, your freight bills can run into thousands in numbers if not more. This also means that the errors within, even if they are only worth a few cents may turn up to a sizeable amount if you consider hundreds of weekly bills passing through you. Based on certain researches conducted within the shipping industry, it has been noticed that over 30% of all invoices have an error in them. As a business, this translates into a loss of revenue for you. Even if you were to say that the amount may be a few cents in an invoice, let us consider the larger picture at hand which translates these few cents multiplied thousands of times, thus leading to significant losses of revenue for your business. This being the case still does not motivate many companies to consider checks and audits as an ongoing process. How would you as a business justify leaks of revenue and not plugging the hole? Why don’t shippers and freight handlers run tighter audit processes? There are multiple reasons why this may not be a priority for businesses. Let us look at some obvious reasons for the lack of motivation for freight bill audits.

•    Lack of adequate workforce to run reviews of thousands of invoices
•    Shortage of expertise and experience in audits
•    The absence of know-how and current compliance
•    The core processes do not allow for enough time for inspections to be run.
•    Not understanding the gravity of the more substantial loss
