Freight Management: How to Audit the Company that Sends Goods Overseas?

Freight Management

The freight audit is important to verify that it has been properly billed by the carriers that send goods overseas (ส่ง ของ ต่าง ประเทศ, which is the term in Thai).

Find out in this post how freight auditing can help your company have more efficient freight management.

Audit benefits in freight management

Freight audit is one of the most important steps in freight management. It allows the shipper to confirm that the value charged by the conveyor corresponds to what appears in the table available.

The team responsible for logistics must always commit to this management to perform a good audit.

Freight divergences

Divergences of freight can have different causes. Here’s what they are:

Automatic readjustment

Without the freight audit, any shipper can be caught off guard with an automatic readjustment, having to pay a higher freight cost than expected, based on the previous table.

Price of quotation

During the quotation, it is common to price diverge from the combined table, and it will be exactly this price that will be recorded in your billing.

Therefore, it is important to keep all the data of the quotation, such as date, number, value and responsible, duly registered to avoid unwanted charges.

Shipping calculated outside the agreed table

Small oversights can lead to miscalculations in freight management. One is not to consider the table. Although it seems a difficult mistake to make, it happens with some frequency – especially taking into account the amount of CT-emitted per day.

Duplicate charges

It is essential to monitor the issue of invoices and freight. The shipper must verify the information of the invoices, pre-invoices, and freights to the extent that these documents are issued.

Without the freight audit, your company will also be subject to undue charges for a service that was not performed by the carrier.
