Our Shipping and Logistics Back Office Services

Processing of Bill of Lading (BOL)

The BOL serves as a receipt for consigned goods, a carriage contract, and a document of title and, therefore, is a significant document.

Electronic BOLs (e-BOLs) are generated nowadays instead of the paper BOLs generated traditionally. These let companies create encrypted BOLs online and generate, review, modify, transmit, and print BOLs securely.

We help you generate e-BOLs on your shipments, irrespective of whether you are an exporter, a logistics provider, or a transportation company, through back-end support. We help you realize faster freight documentation, financial settlements, and enhanced productivity. That is because we help you make considerable savings on processing time and paperwork. We deliver e-BOLs to you even earlier than the dispatch of your shipments.

Services for Processing of Freight Payments

We offer such services to third-party payment providers and third-party logistics providers (3PPs and 3PLs), in addition to exporters and transportation companies. Through these services, we help them handle substantial volumes of freight bills.

A lot of logistics companies' time goes into processing and paying freight bills that carriers raise. Our expert team approves your bills after reviewing each process, audit, and invoice. We also transfer funds electronically to disburse these according to the invoices, if this service is included in the outsourcing contract. You can save a lot on your bill processing costs and time by outsourcing freight payment processing to us. By availing our freight bill processing service, you can shorten your processing cycles, reduce administrative costs, and eliminate claim disputes, overcharges, and duplicate bills.

Pre-Audit Services for Freight Payment

Many carriers issue freight bills for large logistics providers, which these companies then have to deal with. Common occurrences include errors in critical data and rates, in addition to inaccurate billing. These happen on account of the frequent changes in exchange and freight rates, along with long cycles for processing.

We review each freight invoice at the transactional level and compare it against relevant shipment documentation, such as negotiated rates and the BOL. We highlight and recheck all billing errors and bring these to the carrier's attention.

You can compare various carriers on the basis of total billing and rates if you avail of our audit services. Based on that, you can decide which carrier is more profitable and cost-effective.

If you outsource to us, you can save the time you would otherwise lose while rectifying inaccurate bills and resolving disputes.

Post-Audit Services for Freight Payment

We check for errors in payments made already to carriers by 3PL providers. We ensure rectification of errors and bring all overbilling instances to the attention of the providers.

We review all paid carrier invoices in-depth and scrutinize price-related issues such as discounts, classifications, and contract rates negotiated. We provide relevant documentation, and file overcharge claims to the carrier concerned if any discrepancies are discovered.
