Keep track of costs with return data

Consignor collects return data from your carriers. These return data can e.g. be the invoiced rate per shipment from the carrier. You can use these return data from your carrier to compare with your own data to see if e.g. the carrier’s rates are correct. You can subsequently evaluate the deviations through invoice control reporting. The invoice report in Consignor Portal helps you with this.

 

Invoice control visualize deviations

Through the reports in Consignor Portal you can keep an eye on the freight rates from your carriers in the invoice report. The invoice report visualizes deviations between expected freight rates and your carrier’s freight rates. All calculations is based on your individual agreement with your carrier. This way it’s easy for you to stay cost conscious, as you are able to check if you are being billed as expected. The invoice report along side with other reports such as the statistics report work as a great basis for you to negotiate freight rates with your carrier.
