Yusen Logistics has launched a Freight Auditing Tool in response to customer demand for an accurate way of checking freight invoices, as well as the need to allocate cost accurately throughout the supply chain.
Functions include checking whether invoices are actually valid or correct. In the case of ocean carriers, for example, Yusen reckons that some 20-30 per cent of invoices can be incorrect, so accuracy of data can make a significant difference.
It also provides a detailed cost split, calculating the freight costs per invoice down to individual SKU. This information can then be sent to the accounting department for cost allocation
