If you're in shipping, it's important to understand industry jargon and what the meaning of "free audits" really is.

Shipping Jargon and the Meaning of "Free Audits"

We speak to people often about our services or technology. Usually, they're shopping around for optimization or auditing services. Lots of potential clients we speak to say that another company is offering to audit their bills for free. But it might not be all it's cracked up to be.

For example, some companies offer what they say is a free audit, and they will find carrier invoice errors for you, but they won't share that information with you unless you pay them a fee or let them recover the errors themselves.

In this sense, the audit is free in that they're doing some work on the front end. But they're not giving you any results that you can use.

Lojistic is Different

Unlike those companies, Lojistic offers free access to our cutting-edge platform, from which we share the audit results with you. You can click a button and download a report. It will have all the information you need, including:

  • Account number
  • Invoice number
  • Tracking number
  • Invoice date
  • Carrier invoice error reasons

With this information on hand, you'll know exactly what to say to the carrier when you call. And it gives you the amount that you need to ask for in refund credits, again, for free.

When you create an account, all you need is a name, a business email address, and carrier credentials. And you can audit your UPS and FedEx bills for free forever with Lojistic.
