Data2Logistics 'drives' CARS (Claims & Audit Review System) for faster freight bill auditing

Global freight bill processor, auditor and advisor Data2Logistics announce the launch of their Claims & Audit Review System (CARS), improving information flow for shipping clients.

The system invigorates the company’s money-saving freight bill auditing ability with enhanced speed, resulting in faster audit cycles. CARS’ functionality optimizes the presentation and navigation of shipment data requiring auditor review, caches client freight bill data and distributes the information contiguously to Data2Logistics auditors. The result streamlines a potentially time-intensive portion of Data2Logistics’ audit services.

The ability comes amid Data2Logistics’ further expansion of the company’s transportation cost-savings portfolio of freight bill auditing, processing payment and advisory services to companies who ship products domestically and internationally. Using actionable information from their powerful yet easy to use data mining and reporting tools, clients are able to identify savings, as well as improve negotiations and quality of service with LTL, TL, parcel, overnight express, ocean, heavy weight air and rail carriers.

Data2Logistics assists Global 1000, Fortune 1000 and SMB companies to reduce their product shipping costs by providing an outsourced opportunity to efficiently process, audit account code and pay their freight at a significantly lower cost than internal processes, while also identifying more carrier overcharges than internal systems.

The company provides actionable information to better manage and control transportation cost, and supports clients with their carrier bid preparation, benchmarking, proposal analysis and negotiation for all modes on a global basis.

As a single source of information, Data2Logistics seeks to identify opportunities for savings, report the reasons for variances, and determine and report variances in trends and opportunities to make in modal shifts, consolidate shipments, improve carrier utilization and adjust shipment size, as well as monitor accessorial cost, and costs per kilometre/mile. Reviewing over $15 billion worth of freight bills from thousands of carriers annually, the company offers a single-source solution for all modes of freight.
