Electronically Lost Package Recovery:
- Both UPS and FedEx guarantee to provide a final proof of delivery scan on all packages. Our software allows us to identify shipments where the carrier has failed to do so. These recoveries can result in up to a $100 refund per package.
- ACT is unique in that most audit firms do not recognize these shipments, nor do they pursue savings on them due to the manual nature of auditing them. We include this service as a standard step in our audit process.
Over 200 Unique and Customizable Reports Available Online, with Ad Hoc and Push Technology
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.
With ACT’s PackageCop® service no access is required to any of your business systems; freight movement and billing data are pulled directly from the carrier’s website with no software integration on your side. We then compile all of your data in a standard layout so you can easily pull this information into your business system, if desired.
