There are hidden costs from errors on freight invoices that are unnecessarily pulling profits from your bottom line. Freight carrier billing systems are often imperfect and prone to mistakes. ACT has a proven track record of finding these errors and turning them into returned profits to our clients.

Our large freight audit process includes the unique eyes on validation of the Bill of Lading (BOL) against each carrier invoice. This allows us to catch mistakes the carrier might make entering the BOL data into their invoicing system. This service rarely performed by our competitors and responsible for nearly 50% more savings.

Our small parcel audit service validates you are being billed correctly, based on your unique contractual agreements with each carrier as well as their service standards. We audit every line of every invoice; refunds are automatically credited to your account.

All of your data is compiled in a standard layout so you can easily pull this information into your business system, if desired.

We offer a complete carrier payment service. Your accounting department will save time and money as they will only need to cut one payment per week to ACT, and we will pay all your carrier invoices on your behalf.
