If you are running an organization with parcel carrier agreements, it typically means all of your parcel packages are shipped daily and billed monthly to the single corporate account. Depending on the size of your operation, it might mean a few dozen parcel shipments each day or a few hundred. In either case, parcel billing errors can and will occur.

For instance; missing shipments, service levels or Saturday deliveries, not carried out in the right timeframe (after weekend delivery). These are common mistakes. The pity for shippers is, especially with large parcel freight flows, that keeping track of all this information is a burden. Or even worse, undoable!

In the large parcel carrier environment, services are often billed before or during shipments, and not at the time of the delivery. That is exactly why most logistics departments do not have the resources to review and track all the parcel related shipments. They are focussed on current and future shipments, and often there is no dedicated team available for thorough transportation audits

But luckily for shippers, there is a solid solution called Parcel Freight Audit, sometimes referred to as small parcel audit.

Parcel audit providers verify your freight invoices for missing details, overbilling, errors and extra costs related to shipments. Outsourcing parcel freight audit means that a third-party provider will work on a companies behalf with parcel carriers. It offloads the burden of carrier communication and scrutinizing invoices away from your logistics and financial department.

Recovery is the process that takes place once the audit has been completed, in order to reclaim/recover overbilling. Our logistics experts have a deep understanding of custom parcel carrier agreements to determine where mistakes were being made and whether or not clients were receiving the optimal discounts available.
