What’s the importance of invoice audit?

Traditional freight bill auditing services have been around for decades and for good reason: carriers make billing mistakes. Wrong rate, wrong class, and wrong terms are just the beginning of where things can go south. With Shipment Trackers’ comprehensive invoice audit in place, you have the peace of mind that every charge is valid, and every penny is accounted for.
