Logistics expertise

ControlPay was founded by the believe that invoice verification could be done a lot more efficient. Based on a lot of logistics experience the idea was simple, bring all transport related items together in one file and manage it from beginning to end. This philosophy sounds simple but it is a defining difference compared with our competitors who have built their processes and systems from an invoice and payment angle. At ControlPay we feel that knowing and understanding logistics brings us closer to our customers and truly has put us in a position to deliver ongoing value in the continuously changing logistics landscape.

ControlPay is therfore a non-traditional global freight audit provider. As a Dutch company, we always had a very strong international focus on the logistics part of our business. As such, we have approached the development of our self-build Freight Audit platform in this fashion.

16 years ago, ControlPay was set up to support large multinationals with complex logistics structures and their needs for control in logistics costs and freight invoice flows. This is still very true today.

We always have had an international focus being based in Europe and took the collaborative nature of international processing to our platform.  

 

Freight Payment value

Of course you will achieve savings via the elimination of overbilling, somewhere between 3-5%. But next to that you enhance communication and billing processes with your carriers and you gain visibility and transparency of your transportation set-up which gives you the power to further optimize processes, reduce the number of carriers and standardize rates and business rules.

Reporting/Business Intelligence

Our reporting capabilities do not only show analytical freight data but also gives you cost to serve data based on cost allocation rules that can be used by both Finance and Sales. This way a freight settlement process provides value way beyond the logistics department. Via the approved transportation data we help our customers with carrier reduction, rate harmonization and streamlining of extra costs.

Additional tools

As a technology driven Freight Audit & Pay provider we are offering several tools that help both operations and audit. Many customers use our online web booking tool that allows to easily book shipments real-time while the data is registered for the audit. Next to that customers can place bid requests with their carriers for spot shipments and receive bids in matter of hours.

Billing solutions

Freight invoices create a lot of hidden work. ControlPay makes it simple and drives the invoicing process. Via our billing instructions carriers create easily their invoices without worrying about VAT or cost centers. We do that work for them. Either ControlPay generates a self-billing note on it’s platform or the carrier easily creates its’ invoice on the platform himself.
