DDC FPO examines, adjusts and verifies carrier freight bills for accuracy.
Rising freight cost is an emerging area of concern as seen in recent years, and with high fluctuations of fuel prices, low visibility of future freight costs and high complexity of freight quotes, freight cost verification remains vulnerable to human and process errors. As a result, the freight back office requires proper auditing practices to ensure that the organization does not overpay for services it did not incur.
Unfortunately, many organizations are daunted with calculating freight rates manually, a task that can be especially challenging when the customer has hundreds of shipments shipped each month. Most organizations do not have the manpower to calculate all of the freight invoices issued to them and at best, perform random samplings to assess if invoices are being billed correctly. At the end of the day, the manual and tedious efforts required for a freight audit are undoubtedly more expensive to initiate in-house versus with the help of an outsourced specialist.
The DDC FPO model leverages expertise, scalability, flexibility and system compatibility combined with its industry-trained staff and an extensive list of service capabilities to equip your back office with the knowledge and resources necessary to tackle the challenges of tomorrow’s freight audit.
