Freight Audit & Payment Company FAQs

What is Freight Audit and Payment?

While often lumped together, freight audit and freight payment are two separate, interconnected processes; freight audit refers to services that examine, verify, and adjust freight bills for maximum accuracy, while freight payment refers to services that pay invoices once they are accurate.

Working in tandem, our freight audit and payment services handle both of these processes, ensuring bills are monitored and adjusted before paying them in full — on-time and accurately.

How does IntelliTrans Handle Freight Audits?

IntelliTrans managed services offers one centralized service for all freight operations, including freight audit. We perform a 3-way match — comparing actual shipment data, invoice, and rate (both contract and tariff) — simultaneously accounting for pricing conditions including rates based on car type, owner, and net weight. We also crosscheck diverse charges (including accessorial charges and fuel surcharges) with accessorial schedules, fuel schedules, mileage, and shipment information, all stored within our system.

Why Outsource to Freight Audit and Payment Companies?

Freight audit and payment is an extensive process; comparing freight bills for maximum accuracy can take hours at a time, with simple mistakes potentially costing thousands of dollars in revenue. Amidst hectic schedules and time-intensive auditing, shippers may sometimes forget to pay a bill together, resulting in damaged trust and potentially excessive late fees.

Outsourcing your freight audit and payment ensures extensive, reliable cross-checking of freight bills, automates bill payments, and saves your team hours of laborious work they can now leverage elsewhere. IntelliTrans is experienced with helping bulk and break-bulk shippers across modes & industries with freight audit and payment — a top choice to outsource the service.

Can a Freight Company Hold Your Freight for Non-Payment?

A freight company can, in fact, hold your freight for non-payment — commonly referred to situationally as “freight hostage.” Freight hostage occurs when a shipper doesn’t pay a transportation debt to a carrier; in turn, the carrier holds onto a shipment until the initial payment, alongside additional late charges, are paid back in full.

IntelliTrans freight payment services ensure your freight remains in motion by swiftly paying freight companies — both on-time and accurately.
