Invoice Receipt and Data Capture
Collecting freight bills from your carrier(s) can occur in a variety of ways. Most carriers prefer to either email us PDF copies of your freight bills or they choose to post EDI files to our secure FTP site. Regardless of the method they choose, Shipment Trackers manages the entire process on your behalf. Once the invoice and it's supporting documentation are received, Shipment Trackers uses them to create a comprehensive database of information that is fundamental to the processing, audit, and reporting functions of our service.
Systematic Cost Accounting
Accurate cost allocation is an important component of every freight payment process. At Shipment Trackers, we apply a valid general ledger code(s) to every carrier invoice based upon your particular set of business rules. Don't have a fully comprehensive set of cost accounting rules? Don't worry. Our web-based Invoice Payment Module allows authorized users to interactively assign GL codes to handle any one-off situation.
After we’ve audited and coded all of your carrier invoices, Shipment Trackers creates a consolidated funding request that details everything needed to pay your carriers. The frequency that these requests are created, along with the corresponding funding and payment cycle, is completely customizable. Pay when you want, how you want: ACH, EFT or check. It's all the same to us. Have carrier-specific payment terms? No problem. We can incorporate those terms into your service, maximizing your cash flow.
