Freight Audit & Pay: Simplify Your Supply Chain

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

In our modern world, simple is hard to find. Technological innovation has made it possible to dream big, and achieve things previously thought impossible. But, the interconnectedness of our now global systems has also illuminated just how complicated the world can be. The logistics industry is no exception. We’ve discovered that labor shortages and weather patterns in one country can have a massive impact on millions of people’s lives around the entire globe, often times in unpredictable ways. And while it’s true that more goods are shipped to more places around the world today than ever before, no one in the industry would say it’s simple.

But, at Zero Down, we’re trying to change that (at least for our clients). Tackling global logistics issues may be out of scope for most shippers, but simplifying your own supply chain is absolutely something you can do today, and enjoy the benefits of for years to come.

One way we’re helping our clients simplify their supply chains is through our Freight Audit & Pay services, via our advanced logistics platform, FreightOptics. With one login access, you get access:

Consolidated Bill Pay:

For most shippers, one carrier is simply not enough to meet their customers’ needs. But calling on multiple carriers also means trying to navigate multiple online portals, all with different invoice types and data access. Our system seamlessly integrates those disparate data silos, pulling together and easily displaying all your data from every carrier, across all modes, into one central hub. From there we provide one consolidated bill to your accounting team, making it easy to keep up with payments, so your carriers are happy and your products keep flowing.

Automated Cost Allocation:

Today’s business world is complex, and even Mom-and-Pop shops have franchises. FreightOptics helps our clients keep up with all the moving parts, and profits. As we pull in those digital invoices from your carriers, our system can apply automated GL coding and business rules during the audit process, allocating costs to different retail locations or division units.

Accurate Shipping Charges: 

One of the best ways to simplify your supply chain is to ensure you’re only paying for the services you actually use. But, very few shippers have the time or expertise to comb through countless carrier invoices line by line, looking for overcharges or service errors. Luckily, we’ve got your back. Our system scans your invoices down to the penny level, making sure no profits are leaking out anywhere along your supply chain. And since our technology automates the entire process, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the savings.

Today’s technology allows people and businesses across the world to connect in unparalleled ways, and pulls the curtain back on the complexity of our global systems. But that same technology is making it possible to simplify our processes and interactions, providing new efficiencies and untold opportunities. Because if you can simplify your work, if you had the time to focus on what you do best . . . just imagine what you could accomplish for your team, and your customers.

The decision is simple, right? Reach out to us today to find out how.
