The history of our business goes back to the year 1969, with the start of a logistics consulting company resulting in different ventures in logistics and transportation until we decided to redefine Freight Audit & Payment at the start of the century. We founded ControlPay, a Freight Audit & Payment provider that would focus on serving European and global customers. From the start we understood the need of cloud-based solutions that would enable us to deliver services anywhere in the world in a flexible and cost effective fashion. ControlPay, with strong heritage in logistics and roots in the freight forwarding industry is nowadays the largest Freight Audit provider in Europe and an important Global provider. With offices in multiple countries, a growing staff of over 150 people and advanced technology we serve customers in the Automotive, Industrial, Consumer, Pharma and Healthcare industry. What our customers like the most about us is our strong logistics and transportation approach, the high level of detail and flexibility in technology next to the pro-active approach towards the carriers. ControlPay is a highly efficient Freight Audit provider that is driven by cost savings as much by value through perfect logistics data. Our logistics intelligence drives savings, efficiency and value in Logistics, Finance and Operations.
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.
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.
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.
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.
