SHIPMENT BILLING AUDITS AND NEGOTIATIONS
Why Do Freight Billing Audits Occur?
According to Global Trade Magazine, incorrect freight billing affects between 5-6% of all invoices. When it comes to Freight Billing Audits, there are honest mistakes that are made and there are times when companies try to take advantage of you. In either case, being able to identify and address billing errors and erroneous charges can have a big impact on your company’s bottom line. Here are some of the issues encountered:
Human Error – Freight shipping can be complex when dealing with everchanging rates and discounts. This makes it easy to sometimes overlook the latest update and not charge the correct rate.
Add-on Service Charges – Shippers pay extra for accessorial services such as residential pickup and inside delivery specifications, among others. When these services are charged unnecessarily, the shipper should usually not be charged for them.
Removing Billing Errors. Identifying and addressing these shipment billing issues can help shippers recover up to 5% of their freight costs. PLP Logistics has a long track record of successfully recovering incorrect charges for their customers, equating to thousands of dollars in savings. That becomes a much cheaper option compared to handle these issues in-house. PLP will make sure you keep what is yours.
