At Flatworld, we find your lost dollars and add them to your bottom line!
A leading logistics services provider finds that approximately one in nine freight bills require a rate adjustment.
Flatworld conducts post-audits of freight invoices and statements to recover carrier overcharges. Your payment service provider may have already settled these bills, yet you may have paid more than what the rate contract specified. This could mean thousands of dollars in lost revenue.
At Flatworld, we audit from:
Actual paper freight bills
Historical data files
