INFOGRAPHIC | Today we take a three-dimensional approach to evaluate the in-house process of a Transportation Audit.

Many professionals in the logistics & supply chain industry are increasingly aware of the fact that transportation invoices often contain a substantial amount of erroneous charges and/or extra freight charges. This is often due to the to a wide variety of reasons, all related to the typical complex nature of shipping and transportation.
