Mistakes are something which anyone of us can do no matter how
efficient we are in our work. But this thing is easy to tell rather
than to apply for any of us because in today’s world committing a
mistake is similar to committing a huge loss for your company. This is
loss can also lead to permanent locking of your company or business so
one should avoid making such disorders to his or her company. When we
utter the word audit we mean that it is the evaluation of a company’s
payment process, system and many such things. This is term is gaining
huge popularity in the transportation business also as companies are
using this widely to evaluate its final bills. When we talk about
transportation the most widely used one is that of ocean ways as there
are hardly any restrictions regarding the amount of luggage which is
seen very much in case of airway transport. But the major challenge
which the companies do have to face is that of freight audit.
There are several problems related to audit of the final bills and this
results in the loss of the sending party at times thus they require the
services of top professionals to clear out their disputes.
Freight bill auditing can be done in a number of ways such as by
either employing your own staff to do it by manual calculations or by
using software which have in them formulas that require only to enter
the required figures or by hiring another firm to do it for you at an
extra charge. Now-a-days the method which is most widely used is that
of outsourcing. In case of outsourcing you do not require an additional
staff for your firm who would be doing all this work, you just need to
get knowledge about a firm who specializes in this work and the rest
would be done by them only. These people have knowledge about all the
day to day activities of world market in short they know about all the
factors that can influence the ocean freight rates such as world oil
price, exchange rates and many more such things that do influence the
rates and are also responsible for the day to day fluctuations of it.
These services just require you to tell them the date on which the
contract was made, what additional charges have been incurred in the
process of transportation such as the fines and the shipping charges.
You should also inform them the amount of luggage it was carrying and
rest would be done by them.
The biggest advantage of hiring an outsourcing company is that you do
not need to do anything which is also the biggest disadvantage at times
as you have no idea about what is done by them and how it is done.
There are no manual records on your part which can lead to a lot of
problem in future. Ocean freight
has gained much importance in the last few decades and this is the
reason why the companies related to it are also expanding such as
Freight audit has given rise to many outsourcing companies
