16 Feb Switch To SSI And Save
Is your current freight audit and freight payment provider giving you the runaround? If so, I encourage you to experience the SSI difference for yourself. Switch to SSI and enjoy the following benefits:
- Straight answers
- Friendly service
- Actionable supply chain intelligence
- Big savings
Multi-modal freight audits and parcel audit services are core competencies of SSI and have been for 30 years. While other companies promote freight audit services, you may discover their promotional talent exceeds their auditing skills. Also, many companies provide auditing services as an add-on service that is far removed from their own primary strengths. If so, now is the time to switch to the global freight audit trailblazer, SSI.
ESSENTIAL SUPPLY CHAIN SERVICES
Freight audit services from SSI provide valuable savings every month and are customized to meet the unique needs of your global supply chain. After completing a best-in-class freight audit, we then process your international freight bills in multiple languages and make payments in the world’s most traded currencies.

CUSTOM FREIGHT AUDIT SERVICES
If you are working with another freight audit provider, I encourage you to switch to SSI. Why? Because we may help you recover tens-of-thousands of dollars a month in savings as our best-in-class audits identify carrier billing errors.
SSI freight audits not only save you money, they also verify your carriers are meeting their contractual obligations. SSI provides a comprehensive freight audit that is automated, scalable, customizable and multimodal. This means our auditing process can smoothly adjust to meet the needs of your dynamic shipping requirements across every mode of transportation.
SSI performs an in-depth audit of all freight charges and contractually guaranteed services for every mode of transportation used in your global supply chain. Validating the rate charged is essential and so is verifying whether the charge itself should have been assessed in the first place.
For speed and accuracy, our systems are optimized to receive carrier freight bills and parcel invoices via Electronic Data Integration (EDI). However, we also accept electronic flat files or documentation from your carriers and 3PLs, when necessary. Whether electronic or paper, your documents are readily available and retrievable so that you may view, share, and retain important invoice information instantaneously.
GLOBAL, MULTI MODAL FREIGHT AUDITS
International freight audits are a core competency of SSI. We perform a thorough service audit across multiple modes of transportation from global, regional and local carriers. We audit these freight bill line items and much more.
- Freight charges
- Duplicate billings
- Incorrect DIM billing
- Lift gate charges
- Late deliveries
- Residential surcharges
- Other accessorial charges
- Invalid/Fraudulent invoices
- Service failures
- Base rate errors
- Billing discrepancies
- Manifested vs. billed weights
- Erroneous Currency Conversions
- Fuel Surcharges
- Carrier compliance to contractual obligations
- Other billing mistakes
SSI will also review the addendums, small-print references, and custom services negotiated with each carrier.
With SSI freight audit services, you can be confident that all charges are in compliance with the established rules and contractually agreed-to parameters within your carrier contracts. The process is fully transparent and you can easily drill down to individual invoices via our SSIconnect online portal. Whenever a charge deviates from the established rules, SSI will take exception to those discrepancies and errors. Contact SSI to learn more about our global freight audit services.
