Optimize freight cost management

We support you in the calculation and settlement of freight costs

In the context of optimization projects, transport costs and the process of freight cost calculation and settlement are of immense importance, as they account for an enormous share of the total logistics costs: Starting with the calculation to identify the optimal type of transport, through the selection of service providers, to invoicing and dispute management.

There are close links to planning and tendering processes. Ideally, you already have detailed information on estimated costs when planning transports and can weigh up various alternatives when selecting the type of transport, route and service provider. If you rely on a tender (individual tender, fixed pool or broadcast), you can pass on the costs specified by the service provider in the subsequent settlement.

Integrated freight cost processes

The credit note procedure offers potential for reducing costs. Instead of waiting for the invoice to be received, shippers can calculate the transport costs independently and credit the service providers. This saves invoice verification time and avoids reminder costs.

We usually recommend that our clients consider freight cost settlement integrated with subsequent processes in the ERP. The process does not end with the transfer, but is closely intertwined with the creation of follow-on documents such as service provider purchase orders and sales orders. Integration with accounting also requires detailed consideration.
