TOP Why use a freight bill Audit and Payment System?

There are many reasons to outsource business functions. Dedicating resources to functions which are not directly linked to the core business are, in many cases, a dilution of critical functionality. Freight bills hold valuable information that is critical to the Transportation and Logistics functions. Outsourcing to a Freight Audit and Payment company essentially provides control and information directly to the logistics functions. Utilizing BBA as your provider adds levels of expertise and customization to that information.




TOP How much will it cost?

The simple answer is net zero. It will not cost you more than you save. The pre-audit, duplicate payment and service level audits will save more than you pay in fees. The bottom line is clear, and at BBA, we will provide monthly reports to prove our value. The big savings, beyond the recovery is you will be in a position to make better decisions and to save significantly on your transportation budget.
