The Why of Freight Audit
At Transportation Cost Recovery (TCR), we believe there’s a lot in a name. As our own name may indicate to you, we provide freight audit services that help your organization to recover freight costs. The cost of processing freight bills for payment can be high for your company when done in-house. This may include verifying rates and charges are correct, and maintaining extensive contract and even perhaps tariff libraries, plus staff and even dedicated equipment to perform these functions. Obviously it can be a smart choice to outsource these key functions, especially when you consider the fact that it’s our specialty. Unlike your company, we don’t manufacturer anything, or ship anything! We live and breathe saving money for our clients on freight charges.
