What Is a Freight Bill Audit?
Freight bill auditing is an essential tool that will reduce your freight costs and strengthen your bottom line. Freight rates and accessorial charges are constantly changing due to fluctuating gas prices, weather, road conditions, available carriers and other factors. When receiving an invoice, oftentimes you will find that the paperwork does not directly line up with the original quote or the Bill of Lading (BOL). A freight bill audit can catch and eliminate these discrepancies and save you money.
Some Typical Mistakes Found During a Freight Bill Audit
- Clerical errors
- Discrepancies in the rates quoted
- Discrepancies in the rates billed
- Incorrect product classifications
- Unnecessary accessorial charges
- Duplicate payments
