Freight contract management and invoice management

Market-leading freight cost management software is built on contract and invoice excellence.

For shippers, cost management and control are key to identifying the right carrier. During the commercial process, shippers need to find the best price across all negotiated carrier contracts. Accurate freight spend management allows shippers to reconcile planned costs and unplanned accessorial charges after the goods have moved from A to B.

By empowering all parties with freight cost visibility, Transwide eliminates manual processing and saves huge chunks of time, reducing the risk of human error, delays and added costs.

Freight audit and delivery confirmations can be combined with freight invoice processing – all automated at the touch of a button. This leads to better transportation fare management, faster payments and a better supplier relationship.

Shippers and logistics service providers get real-time visibility into their transport spend with a detailed view of the various freight cost types.

And by saving time on invoice verification and manual intervention, Transwide transportation cost management decreases the cost per invoice and improves your cost control and bottom line.

Freight cost management solutions: avoiding the unexpected

The right freight cost management software also exposes unexpected costs. These can consume a significant part of your transport budget and most companies are forced to reconcile them with a manual, time-consuming process.

Using the Rate Search feature, you can easily find the best price across all your negotiated carrier contracts right from the start. The Transwide freight contract management solutions leverage the collaborative power of your supplier network to proactively calculate and communicate planned freight costs during the order process. This reduces the likelihood of additional costs from the very beginning.

This improved visibility into planned freight costs and accruals helps eliminate unwelcome surprises.

In the event of additional costs, Transwide’s freight cost management suite enables you to focus on exceptions. This means you can identify deviations from expected freight costs more quickly.

Being able to focus on exceptions allows you and your partners to save time on freight invoice processing and manual interventions and improve cost control and visibility.

Exposing hidden costs, imposing control and automating processes to embed excellence: next generation freight cost management has arrived.
