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, often times you will find that the paperwork does not directly line up with the original quote or the Bill of Lading (BOL). Typical mistakes to freight bills that are caught and eliminated with a freight bill audit include clerical errors, discrepancies in the rates quoted and billed, incorrect product classifications, unnecessary accessorial charges, and duplicate payments.
