As businesses have become increasingly wary of the accuracy of their freight bills, more and more companies have begun to seek cost effective auditing services. Cutting freight costs is an excellent way for companies to save since a company’s freight charges can represent up to 10 percent of a company’s total expenses. Companies therefore have the right and responsibility to scrutinize their shippers to find and fix these billing errors. Shipping and logistics giants FedEx and UPS have been the center of many of these audits; and, given the magnitude of their operations, the fact that approximately 30 percent of freight invoices contain an error, and the recent lawsuits against them, this should not come as a huge surprise.
The number of services available to audit these shippers is now on the rise, and BillSniffer.com provides one such service.

In addition to saving money, auditing freight payment can lead to paying carriers more quickly.
