ControlPay audits many millions of parcels each year. The ever-growing parcel industry makes audit more and more important, not only for cost savings but also for claims, KPI’s and pure visibility. Different providers have different set-ups in different countries concerning rates and invoicing. In the US there are mainly only 2 providers to work with and their set-up is completely different from any provider in Europe. This makes expertise and experience with different carriers across many different countries very important. Thanks to our experienced staff and flexible Audit platform we are able to connect every parcel carrier ensuring full data integration but also keeping flexibility towards the way carriers want to deliver their data. This approach is especially appreciated by the largest carriers who like that Freight Audit providers adapt to them.
