Get an overview with return data

Consignor collects return data from your carriers (return data is not supported by all carriers). These return data can include freight rates, shipping volume and weight as well as events during shipping e.g. delivered notification, damaged or lost shipments. You can use the measurement return data from your carrier to compare with your own shipment data to see if e.g. the carrier’s shipment weight deviates from your own shipment weight. You can subsequently evaluate these deviates to see, if there is deviations that you need to act on. The rate information return data allows you to keep track of whether your carrier is billing you as expected for your shipments – and combined with precalculated rates done in Consignor, you can do effective Invoice Control.
