The Smell Test


Use our Data Management tool, and don’t let freight billing lead you around by the nose
Too many companies still pay freight invoices by the “smell test” – if the bill seems in line with what’s expected, it’s approved. Or the “ruler test” – when the stack of invoices gets about three inches high, it’s time to cut a check. There is a better way. Once you give Data Management a try with TOTALogistix, you’ll never go back to the bad old days.
We can help you keep your costs in line, ensure logistics vendors are charging correctly, and give you single-entry efficiency that flows through to accounts payable, ERP, and general ledger, facilitating "lean and green" accounting practices. Our system lets you capture data for proactive management, generating customized reports to keep you in charge and move your supply chain toward best practices.
While we provide you with IT solutions, our approach is always "I before T." First, we determine your needs, and then deploy the technology to reach them.
Assigning all inbound transportation to COGS and outbound to sales with no differentiation between sales channel/customer/product is a thing of the past. We help our clients improve their reporting methods, and provide a freight audit service with next-generation results – line level GL coding that allocates costs to individual SKUs/divisions/locations/departments, and even identifies specific sales campaigns. Looking at every freight invoice, every line within each invoice, the orders that correspond to that shipment and the items that ship within that order is impossible to perform manually.
Our advanced file matching process can combine several sources of information – from orders to returns, CRM to ERP. We ensure you don’t pay for GSR – guaranteed service refund – packages that are not delivered in the promised timeframe, and provide a report showing each shipment that did not go out using least cost routing, and what that cost you. We flag accessorial and add-on charges, that you would never see. Even with all the new information we provide, you will save dollars on every invoice processed, for immediate ROI.
Implement our Data Management tool, and you’re going to come out smelling like a rose.
