Freight Bill Audit Benefits
There is a primary benefit of using a freight bill audit. That is to understand exactly where you are spending your money. Your more reputable auditors will offer GL coding as well. So within your accounting, you can make sure that you divide your costs. That provides perfect insight from financial statements to your operations. You would know exactly where the money's going.
Another primary benefit is to have all your spending information in one place. It's more usual to use a lot of resources to figure out what you're spending. There's more effort to figure what your actual landed cost is to serve your customers. It requires a lot of different people from a lot of different systems. You would need a good analysis to figure out exactly how that ties to the core business. Using a third party auditor makes sure that 100% of that information is in one place. So, your data is in one place and your answers are there too.
